[I have many sisters] Greta

I first spotted little Ada at the blog of Pugly Pixel. ‘A globetrotting doll, how fun!’ was the first thing that came to my mind.

After seeing Ada at Lady Croissant I thought for a second that there were two Ada’s. But no no, it’s the same little doll, and what a special doll! The feeling of wanting a little Ada for myself started to grow on me and I remembered seeing the doll for sale somewhere, but where?

After a long search I found her, Ada’s sister: Greta!

Getting to know Greta I learned that she didn’t think much of globetrotting. ‘But why not?’ I asked her, ‘Everybody wants to see the world right?’ She told me she was scared, because with adventure comes the feeling of losing control, not knowing what’s going to happen next. But a little sparkle in her eyes told me it was a secret wish to overcome her fears and take a trip to the outside and perhaps even an unknown country.

And at that moment, Greta and I made a pact. We are going to travel together and help each other out. Because, what many of you may not know; Greta and I have a lot in common. I would love to see more of the world, but I’m also scared. Scared of losing control and not knowing what’s next. Scared of being away from home, out of my comfort zone. But Greta made me realize that the little sparkle may not be ignored, so our first trip to an ‘unknown’ country is already planned. Because we want to take it slow, we’re going not too far from home like Berlin or Paris. And we are taking our mommy with us ;)! We are still a bit nervous, but a little ‘sparkle’ of excitement is running through our veins. Enough evidence to say; we are going to get there, little Greta and I! We are going to overcome our fears! We are gonna trot the Globe, beware!
