Spoonbombing: Irene from Spain Checks In

August 15, 2011

I’m so excited! I heard back from someone who found one of my Spoonbombing spoons.
This came in my mailbox:

” My name is Irene and I am from Spain, although I have lived in England. I am traveling for a month I just happen to have found one of your lovely spoons. I stayed in a Hi hostel California and I bought a water melon. I wanted to eat it at the beach so I borrowed one of the spoons from the hostel. Then I have to change hostel next day and I forgot about the spoon. Having a look to it more carefully I realised that maybe someone from the hostel had written something on it, but I had a second check and noticed that it was quite good for been just anyone. It seems like and artist job. I was very curious and I had a look to the website and just found this. I am very happy!!!

Here’s the mysterious part: I left that spoon in the Pigeon Point Hostel near San Francisco several weeks before Irene found it in the Santa Monica Hostel. It traveled!

Irene, I am very happy too! Thank you for writing to me, and for traveling the world and paying attention to the little details in it.
