House on the Ocean

#2.35 in the Indian Ocean
Petra Vainionpää, Maldives New Years Eve 2013.

The Moonhouse really has a predisposition toward exotic beaches and the ocean. Perhaps this is in anticipation of and longing for an eternal existence on the shores of the Sea of Tranquility on the Moon.

Here the seasoned explorer Petra Vainionpää treats us to a magnificent scene from the Maldives in the Indian Ocean with Moonhouse #2.35 basking in sunlight with bungalows built in stilts in the back ground. (Wouldn’t we all have liked to be there to take the picture…)

Congratulations on your successful expedition Petra and fair winds for your coming adventures. (Petra was one of the first explorers and something tells me that the Maldives may not be the last landfall Moonhouse #2.35 makes with Petra. We certainly wish to continue to part-take in Petras exotic expeditions wherever they take here and the Moonhouse Expedition.

Today we welcome three Moonhouse Holders to the expedition.

Hans Hallberg – #2.37
John-Olof Vinterhav – #2.34
Petra Vainionpää- #2.35

Hans Hallberg is a freshman in the expedition but a long standing supporter of the House on the Moon project with the full scale moonhouse installations by the motorway in Västerås to his credit. Hans becomes the holder of Moonhouse #2.37 and promises that we will not be disappointed.

John-Olof Vinterhav is a seasoned explorer with expeditions to Venice, Bethlehem and Jerusalem with Moonhouse #2.23 to his credit. John-Olof handed Moonhouse #2.23 over to Daniel Ahlberg for his Expedition to California, USA (Hollywood, Sequoia National Park, Death Valley, Yosemite Falls, Bixby Creek Bridge). John-Olof becomes the holder of Moonhouse #2.34.

Petra Vainionpää is a very special House Holder to the Expedition. Petra was the first explorer outside HQ and she brought the house on an expedition to Månstad a name which translates directly to Moontown. A very appropriate destination for a Moonhouse Expedition. Petra becomes the holder of Moonhouse #2.35 and promises an expedition to the Maldives in the Indian Ocean.

Congratualtions Hans, John-Olof and Petra to you being a part of the group of Moonhouse Holders (albeit for the second time for some of you). We wish you fair winds on your coming expeditions and look forward to learning more from the reports to come.
