Well well well, funny this life thing is, is it not?
8 months and a few days on and another beautiful chapter in my life has been written, and I could not be happier with the contents of it.
First off a thank you to any and every one that I met whilst on my travels, from the guy at the top of Taksim who worked at the donner shop to the friends that will last a life time. Thank you, thank you.
Most of the people that I spoke to before I left would always say to me, "wow wee, this is a trip of a lifetime, enjoy it to the full" I always thought that was a bit strange because it is and was just a beautiful trip, but certainly not a trip of a lifetime due to the fact that I shall have many many more trips in my lifetime to come. Some shorter and some longer than the one I have just finished. My advice to those of you who have been reading my blog and those of others and have thought to yourselves that you wish you could be doing something like that is simply to
Wests Veggie Garden
Have spent many an hour preparing this garden over the last week, love it.
go ahead and do it. I realise that at first it seems an impossibility with your life as busy and chaotic as it is but that alone is probably reason enough to look more seriously at it. As my mother has always told me "Life is unpredictable, be sure to eat desert first!" Very true.
To my boys Adam, Ryan and Dean who were my travel buddies for much of my travels. Thanks for all the good times, as well as putting up with my flatulance in the mornings! I look forward to many more RIDICULOUS days and nights in the future with you.
And to all of you guys who have been reading along with my travels, thank you. I'll be in CA for the next few months and then London come the end of the year. So whereever I am, you will have a couch to crash on or a bed to share (depending on some logistical considerations).
Being back in America is and has been fantastic. A bit strange having warm showers and a fridge that I can raid at any time of the day. There really is no place quite like home.
Faces of Buddha
Bought these in Bali and they are now on my wall in CA.
