Life doesn't happen to you, you happen to it!

Travel and the outdoors has always being a main staple in my life. It's the mix of the anticipation, the excitement, the growth, the happiness and the peace that I love when I am outside and on the road. Life has been an endless journey of exploration, experience and wonder that has allowed me to travel through some of the most beautiful outdoor spots in the world - an individual bias I know, but it has been a damn fine ride so far! My former lives have included outdoor guiding, expedition medic, wilderness first aid instructor, leadership facilitator, project manager, instructional designer, learning and development geek and adventure travel company owner. Right now I am pursuing my passion in travel writing and photography and trying not to stress too much about breaking into the writing industry and earning a living. At the moment life revolves around taking in summer sunsets with my favourite human,  weekend surfing adventures, getting the surf gear sorted for upcoming explorations to Hawaii, Indonesia, Philipines and Gold Coast to surf left handers, drink spiced rum, delight in coffee, explore the local spots, snap photos and capture the experience here in my blog. In and amongst that I am finishing off my writing studies, looking for a pet dog to enjoy my outdoor adventures with and generally just finding the time to be around people I love and enjoy and to be continually excited to learn and enjoy life. Opportunities are supposed to be snapped up not left to blow away so may your bags be always half packed, your passport ready and your heart a little bit here and a little bit on the road; and may my stories bring you love and joy!

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
