Europe Lecture Series Summer 2012

Hello, Hej, Hallochen, 

I am currently in Salzburg, Austria, in the middle of my 10-country, 18 Deafblind lecture series.

I have been terrible about actually blogging here, because simply put, I can not juggle 10 or 15 websites which I regularly try to post information on. I mainly blog on Facebook and post videos on my Youtube channel (look up “tactiletheworld”. My poor eyes are simply too tired to jump on over here and I apologize for that.

However, the adventures of Coco will be shown in photo albums when this series is done, through links posted later on this site from Facebook. 

I have done 1 lecture in Denmark, 4 in Sweden, 2 in Finland, 1 in Iceland, 1 in Salzburg, Austria and still have Vienna, Austria, Bosnia, Croatia, Portugal, the Netherlands coming up.

I will finally be home in Canada on July 28th!

I have met so many Deafblind people on my travels here. Many inspire me. Lifelong friendships created through tactile. Conversations of learning, living and loving between Deafblind people, Deaf people and I. What an amazing journey this has been.

Thus far, I would like to pay special thanks to these people…

Alda and Vivien Batory, Bo Haardell, Copenhagen Deaf Club 1866, Lotte Lind Hildrum, FDDB Denmark Deafblind Association and Dovasblindhuset (Deafblind house) of COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

More thanks to come… but there is one more important THANK YOU to the organization that MADE IT POSSIBLE for me to come to Europe from Nepal, covering the costs of an expensive flight ticket and some other expenses that some Deaf associations could not afford. Moeder Catharina Fonds of Amsterdam, Netherlands, made it possible for me to do my lectures in Europe as well as for those associations that could not afford to have me do it for them.

Sending you love from the Untenberg Mountains of Salzburg, Austria.

Tactile love.
