About Me

CURRENT MISSION

It can take us a long time and most of the world to learn the things w know about love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it all can come to us in an instant....

ABOUT ME

I'm originally from a small former colliery in the North East of England where time has frozen still and everybody knows your name (like the song from Cheers). I've spent most of my adult life travelling and visited around 20 new countries in the last 8 years including two year long trips. I've learned a lot from it, would say it has influenced me a lot and I have been lucky enough to meet some really cool people and experienced some outstanding things along the way. I always seem to be thinking about my next adventure and am certainly at my happiest when I'm on the road or on remote beach or a bus or a train or at the top of a panoramic mountainscape and so on ! Life is for living, so live it, and some may agree that it is way too short to go through worrying about money or possessions. 'All men die but few men truly live'.

PHILOSOPHY

It can take us a long time and most of the world to learn the things we know about love, and fate, and the choices we make, but the very heart of it all can come to us in an instant...
