About Me


Welcome to paradise!




I have done a lot of travelling in the past and still do, have always found the people I have met whilst backpacking friendly, honest,generous and interesting. I wish to repay some of the generosity shown to me over these years.I believe I have become a respectable closet hippy as the pressures of time suggest conformity is a option to portray to generations that follow.Ahh those anti vietnam war demos seem like a age ago.Where has all the passion gone????


Happiness.The Clock Of Life

"The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.

To lose one's wealth is sad indeed.
Too lose one's health is more.
To lose one's soul is such a loss
That no man can restore."

Today, only is our own.
So live, love and travel with a will.
Place no faith in tomorrow,
For the clock may soon be still.
