I adore old things

dscf3098

I sometimes think that I was born in the wrong time period. I would have loved to be born in the 18th or 17th century, to wear long and big dresses. I would probably have been the outcast of that age…and I would have liked it :D. I like all kinds of old things, from buildings to stamps and badges. And Canterbury is the perfect place for my hobby. Every day I find details that I’ve missed before, and I love going hunting for them. Now don’t get me wrong, I do live in the present, but I like going back in time, trying to imagine how people lived before me , what they liked and what they thought.

  1. Sometimes I think that too. But then I realize that I wouldn’t have liked to fear disease and to be the property of a man who could beat me for no good reason and to have no education and to have to wander into a cold, snowy night to dig a hole for the bathroom.

    But I would have loved to see some of those buildings in their glory and meet some of the great minds of the time.
