The Dangling Carrot
Time to update my profile. (12/1/12)
Life is one big adventure. I know someone of note has said something like this in the past. I am a convert to the Big Adventure.
I have spent my first 42 years in a conventional vacuum. What I considered was a normal conventional life was sucking the life out of me. It's 4 years ago now that I decided to leave the 'norm' and I suppose now I have become a bit of an ' itinerant
'. Not a label that businesses, financial institutions and Government departments have in the permanent address field on paperwork.
I have explored a small percentage of the world, being very picky about where I spend a lot of time, Costa Rica 3 months, Vietnam 3 months, China 1 year, Spain 2 months, UK and Germany this last 18 months equally; with smaller times spent in and out of Cambodia, Malaysia, Brunei, Hong Kong, France, Morocco and home to Australia twice. And more recently Italy, my first visit. All have been great adventures! Don't ask which was my favourite because you can't compare between different cultures and experiences. Refer DavidnLynne

Now, I've decided to swap 'itinerancy' for 'normalcy' for the sake of another adventure. It's a high price to pay. I'll be back in Brighton UK area to live so that I can train to become a bus driver. Something I'd thought to do in my retirement, but why wait? In this year of the London hosted Olympics it should prove to be interesting and fun. I've been watching episodes of 'On the Buses' on Youtube to get into character.
UPDATE UPDATE - I am now driving double decker buses in Brighton. What a laugh!
A mission: to put a smile on the faces of those who look like they need it. It's a challenge.
