Welcome. I don’t use this much blog anymore, but there is still some good content here from back in the day, and I still travel a lot. Now though I just share on my Facebook and Youtube channels and then share that content here.

Keeping things fresh with Lemonade

Here I am about 2 months later keeping things consistant by saying I am going to post more often, and then not doing that. But hey, I am reliably unreliable and have at this point accepted that to some degree. Currently Calina and I are

On being out of phase

I have been back in London now for almost 2 months and it has been a whirlwind of emotions and realisations deeply intermingled with dozens of other equally poignant ‘tions. I find myself in a place so foreign and far out of my experiences for

Born again…Again.

Let me start by saying, more so now than ever, I have no bloody idea what I’m doing, where I’m going, or if I can be bothered, but I probably can. I have one thing to stick to, just one. I have paid for it,

Stretchy Pants and New Beginnings

Just when you think you have an idea of what your life is going to be, reality comes along and lets you know that you don’t. This pretty much describes where I’m at right now. As some will know Sarah and I have decided to

Leaving London

Almost two months have passed since I arrived in London, and it was great to spend the time with my family who I have not seen for three or four years. For the most part I did not do the touristy things one usually does.

Human Consciousness, I don’t think so

I have a lot of time to ponder, and I spend a lot of that time pondering time, consciousness, my mind, and the minds of others. A lot of preponderances amount to nothing, and most live firmly in the realm of opinion, but better out

London Parks, Playing in the Snow

Cold weather without snow is shit, cold weather with snow is like living in a winter wonderland, it’s so puuurdy. The promised deluge finally happened in London, and about a foot of snow covered the dirty old streets, dirty old houses, and dirty old people.

Bad Jobs, things could be worse

I have had a few bad jobs in my time, but they were relatively easy compared to some of the occupations I have seen while traveling around the world. From India to Australia, from Mexico to China, if you think your job sucks, at least

Snow in London, my ass shivers in anticipation

So I have been in London for just over a month now, and although it has been good to relax and see the family, the hankering to hit the road again, and for warmer climes, has returned. Usually I prefer the cold weather, and snow

Life choices, the art of Sacrifice

If someone told me now that I only had a year to live, and asked what I would like to do with my remaining time, I am in the fortunate position to say “Exactly what I am doing now”. How many people could really say

Happy Birthday Sarah Jane

About 2013 years ago, somewhere between Sunday and Saturday, in a manger somewhere in the middle east, a child was born. He walked on water, healed some people, drank a lot of wine, and partied like it was 0000, then went to heaven, all before

27 march 2015, My Doomsday Prediction

I woke up this morning filled with disappointment, it is the 22nd, and Doomsday has not arrived. To say I feel let down is an understatement, instead of looking out the window and seeing an ash covered sky, fires raging and people screaming in the

Long term travel gear, but more interesting.

“What?! Not another Travel Gear post!” I hear you shout. “Whoaaa, hold on just a second there matey!” I reply in a somewhat condescending tone, “Yeah sure, it has been done before, but not by me!” You’re probably pondering what I could possibly write to

Christmas lunch with the older generation

By a round-a-bout set of circumstances, I found myself having Christmas lunch with about two dozen people, all between the age of sixty and ninety. My initial reaction to being invited to the event, was one of uncertain uneasiness, not because of the age group,

Memories or moments

I without a doubt have a wealth of memories to choose from, 32 years worth in fact. Although a large number of those are heavily dulled through abuse or the tyranny of ages, I still have some solid foundations with which to build my world

My most popular post is, drum roll please…

…”Please don’t touch my testicles again, massage gone wrong“ When writing and titling the post, I thought,now there is a catchy name, one that will stand up and make people pay attention (pun intended), what I did not foresee, somewhat short sightedly, was that this would

London, like coming home, but not

It is around 1 degree Celsius outside, the sun is yet to show itself despite being seven thirty in the morning, and my Qantas pajamas are having a hard time keeping the cold at bay. Sure there are heaters in the house, and they do a pretty good job, but
