kararosenlund .... So, I met a proper salty seadog sailor on Hamilton Island...., I said I would love to get out on a boat... he said 'Well, I can help you with that... I have a boat, come out with us...' I said 'Great, - what are the chances, sailor has a boat!'... he then asked ''Can you swim?'... I said 'Yes, yes I can, love to swim....!' He then asked 'Do you get sea sick?'...... silence... um, avoid eye contact...well, 'No, uh, not really' #totally .... he said 'Great, lets get out there, the race is about to start ...'Race, what race?.....lets just say I know now how to tack and gybe - and they aren't dance moves x #ahirw #hamiltonisland @hamiltonisland 10h

kararosenlund Dear Orange Tree; thank you for this years single 'yield'. We have been through a lot together; the aphid outbreak of 2012 was a tough one, though I was by your side through it all, then there was the rogue dog attack which saw you dug up and mistaken for a stick... sorry, I should of shut the gate...though much time has passed and we all have to move forward. This is you last chance, get yourself together or else you are out! Tell your girlfriend Magnolia the same goes for her. X 1w

kararosenlund ... and this is why I'm a window seat kinda girl.... Somewhere over South Australia looking out the plane window... if you sit in a window seat and the glass is all smudgy, chances are its because of me. Too much to excitement. X 2w

kararosenlund Travellers essentials! You never know when you will need an old hourglass out here or a Tjanpi desert weavers basket! I bought seven Tjanpi baskets just to be safe - what's with women and baskets. I can't get enough of them. Im not coming home, the baskets and I are staying out here forever @longitude131 1mon

kararosenlund Olive Pink, if I have a daughter one day I'll name her after you! I'm staying in a tent in the dessert dedicated to anthropologist, artist and aboriginal activist Olive Pink - who was the fiercest woman in Australia - she really did send off fierce handwritten letters in twine and wax. Look her up, she was a visionary. x @longitude131 1mon

kararosenlund Isnt it funny how a public holiday can bring out the simple pleasures in life. Today I hung a piece of my own work from my print sales library (now available online btw) It made me feel so proud and happy, so much so that I want to share the love and give the same print away. Regram this shot if you want one on your wall and tag me in @kararosenlund for your chance to win. Hashtag #kararosenlund I promise to rip up pieces of tiny paper next Friday and draw a name from a hat! There may even be pigeons! X 3mon
