Growing up, summers spent in my home country gave me countless opportunities to feed my insatiable curiosity. Elders in Romania often keep, in their centenary homes, interesting artefacts which carry within them a great deal of history. My great-grandmother was no exception to that rule.
Going through the drawers and wooden boxes that had been left unopened for ages led me to this forgotten gem, an antique World War II compass manufactured in Germany, which had likely belonged to my great-grandfather who had been at war.
I've since carried it with me wherever I have gone; a compass of purpose reminding me both of human history and home. #percérock #stayandwander #compass #gaspesie #romania #explorecanada
