Getting ready for a journey

My art work has taken a back seat lately as I am busy preparing to leave Australia for 3 months!! Yes 3 Months in europe and Morocco!! I am so excited as the last time I was there was when I was 17,  32 years ago when I went to Germany on a scholarship.  My husband and I are travelling through, England, France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Morocco, and Germany.
I have been researching the places I need to see- so many I won't be able to fit them in!
Thankfully I have many well travelled friends who have given me ideas on various places to go.
Barcelona is on the list as is Florence, London, Paris, Venice, Avignon, Berlin, Dubrovnik.... so many beautiful places.
Now to figure out my personal art challenge for the journey.
What will I capture, document, collect??
 I am a collage artist after all.

My work is about journeys, so maps will be on the  list.
Have you got any suggestions?

Let me know if you do.

Here's a photo of a piece I made for a friend Zac's 21st. -Something I whipped up a little while ago. ( as I haven't anything very new) He is a film making student, musician, funny guy.
