Whenever I talk about my blog and its topic, some eyebrows rise and questions are asked:
– “Why vintage?”
– “Where did that vintage fascination come from?
– “Why not Bollywood” (since I’m literally oriental)
And last but not least…
– “But you are so young, why do you like those old things?”
Since I usually do things in reverse order I will start with the last question. Let’s go way back in time. As in 16 years ago. Which is also almost vintage! Anyway. Let’s talk about history. A topic that fascinated me ever since highschool. I loved the subject history, it was my favorite subject. When I was learning from my history book, I was reading it like a roman. Needless to say that I scored very high on the history subject (and very low on the math subject…)
The way I see it: old is gold. Everything that is going on today, has its origin somewhere back in time. A good example is family history. (Almost) everyone is interested in their family history for obvious reasons. And ofcourse you are creating your own part of your family history right now. And 40 years from now you will be saying: “Back in my day…we had smartphones and tablets”.
