On quitting travel blogging & what’s next

On quitting travel blogging & what’s next

Firstly – did you miss me?! Doubtful. With the amount of travel blogs and sites out there on the ole interweb, I doubt my silence even registered. However, that’s about to change (I hope). You see, there’s been a good reason for my silence. Well, 4 good reasons in all honesty. My health. If you’ve...

The day you get told you have an incurable illness…

The day you get told you have an incurable illness…

There are a great many things in life that we can control. What we eat, what we say, what we do; the list is endless. But one thing I have recently discovered is that health is never really in our control and can change in an unspeakably horrid instant. A little over 3 weeks ago...

A day out at Palm Beach

A day out at Palm Beach

The emotional journey to Australia Part I

The emotional journey to Australia Part I

I suppose like all good stories I should start at the beginning. Except, given that I have no current direction and feel so lost, the beginning seems all but a myth. I’m struggling; greatly.
