Young Ron Weasley

I love old photos – and truly hope to always have physical copies…there is something more real about flicking through an old album or scrapbook than just clicking away at a mouse or jabbing at a phone screen. Irony isn’t lost on me here but, you get my point!  This was who knows when? Can neverContinue reading “Young Ron Weasley”

The Rocking Chair Theory

Sometimes you see something and it sparks a whole chain of thought almost immediately…often it’s in things you don’t expect, and from places you wouldn’t have guessed – but despite this it feels central to your life in some way…as if it has always been a part of you, even if you hadn’t realized itContinue reading “The Rocking Chair Theory”

The Mission from God.

I have been dwelling on my early teenage years recently – it’s funny because at that point in your life, it could be argued there is not too much greater thought going on! It’s very “I want this!’ and “I hate this!”, possibly with a sprinkle of “this is shit!” But something is happening, you are blossoming into whatever you willContinue reading “The Mission from God.”

Horrible Jobs/Horrible Bosses!

Hey friends! This took me a while, so I hope you enjoy it! It’s a little trip down memory lane…a look in at some of the crummy jobs I have had along the way – I could have made it A LOT longer, but we would be here for hours! So yeah, hope you get a kickContinue reading “Horrible Jobs/Horrible Bosses!”

Broke? Travel Anyway!

I often get emails, and messages from people – asking the same question – “how do you afford travel? Are you from a rich family? Do you have connections? Did you get some crazy compensation deal – and have decided to blow it all on roaming the world rather than making sound investments?!”  Well, no.Continue reading “Broke? Travel Anyway!”

Kiss Me, I’m not Irish.

So it is upon us again…St. Patrick’s Day! Or as I like to call it “the day Americans tell you they are Irish because their Grandmother’s half-cousin once dated a guy who once had a teacher who was Irish.” ..so yeah, with that in mind it should come as no surprise that the global Irish population expands temporarilyContinue reading “Kiss Me, I’m not Irish.”

Curse of the Ninja

Was reminded of this childhood memory by Melanie, after my previous post regarding childhood lies! When I was in primary school, like most kids my age – I used to love The Power Rangers. The kicking, the punching, the flipping, the monsters, and the explosions…I mean, the whole package appealed really. So it wasn’t a rare sight toContinue reading “Curse of the Ninja”

Fight Club

I would like to think I am a lover, and not a fighter…after all, usually physical conflict doesn’t really solve much when you think about it. Obviously some people make it very tempting, but more often than not, non-peaceful ways to shut them the hell up, are somewhat frowned upon!  Naturally if your dear oldContinue reading “Fight Club”

My Facebook Space.

We used to be satisfied with our own personal space, that was enough for us – we would just bask in the warmth of our life, and our memories…our hopes, our dreams. MySpace, was a comfortable place…a musical land, with you, and your closest companions…your, top friends…I suppose you could call them.  But with time we began toContinue reading “My Facebook Space.”

Red Light (Netherlands)

The Netherlands – Amsterdam ~ 2010 (I am missing my friends from home – so, I naturally find myself reminiscing on old times…in particular, about an old adventure we had together a few years ago…I thought you may as well come along for the trip down memory lane!) One good thing about where I’m from…(and thereContinue reading “Red Light (Netherlands)”
