A looooong, grey & caffeine fuelled drive south lead us to the hills of Santa Barbara. The clouds began to break & subside on our way down. We drove from red wood forests, down through desert like landscapes full of oil pumps till we reached the scorched rolling hills of SoCal. There had been a […]Read More California Part 3 – “SoCal Take It Easy.”
Leaving Morro Bay behind we decided we want experienced Santa Cruz how we wanted. A short stop in St. Louis Obispo was the furthest we made it down south till this point. Santa Cruz had such a reputation for surf & we had driven straight past so much. We switched Highways to the 101, a […]Read More California Part 2 – Simpler Times & Chasing Mavericks (had to).
Looking back a curiosity for California started from a young age. Unable to really know why until later in life, maybe just the media & how the west coast of California influenced my taste in music. Turns out my opportunity to visit would be decided on impulse, at a pretty uncertain time for me. I […]Read More California Part 1 – Passing Freedom & Finding Harmony.
Sri Lanka, incredible food, welcoming people, wildlife & surfing all year. A culture worth exploring by anybody with a hunger for exploring. Although I have to stress my concern for the welfare of the elephants in a country which is becoming more urbanised & the tourism industry growing larger. I know that i won’t be […]Read More Elephant Cruelty.
So purpose. What is ours? Why do we need one so badly? Is it purely self righteous to think we have a greater meaning as an individual? A good friend recently asked that impossible question “what’s the point in life?” Truth is that’s not a question I’m particularly comfortable with, mainly due to the fact […]Read More Purpose.
Like De-Ja-Vu I was leaving the mountains for the ocean again. I left early to head down the pacific coast, this time in the direction of the Osa Peninsula. Theres was no way of taking a shuttle door to door so I took one as far as possible to Playa Hermosa, from here I hopped […]Read More Gone. in Costa Rica – Dominical.
500 Bananas a Day & Porcupines in Tree’s? Santa Teresa had a minor hold on me, the surf, the easiness, the scruffiness. This is how I knew it was time for me to go explore the rainforests & some other spots in Costa Rica. The stories of the wildlife in the rainforests alone meant i […]Read More Gone. in Costa Rica – Monteverde.
I get it, not everyone likes the same thing but i knew i needed less than Tamarindo. I know my contentment lies where there is little, more vegetation & dirt than buildings, more easiness. As always i had no idea what to expect from my next stop Santa Teresa, a friend had once been before […]Read More Gone. in Costa Rica – Santa Teresa.
Im Gone. Again. It’s been 9 months in the alps this time around, the longest yet. It was time to escape the enclosed valleys, time to search for my ‘green light’ (something ill explain sometime maybe). 35 hours after stepping foot on a plane I arrived in Liberia, an hour after this I managed to […]Read More Gone. in Costa Rica – Tamarindo.
I don’t like cities! A decision I made pretty early on in my life. They simple just aren’t for me, the craziness of the rushing around & the closeness of the buildings, air & traffic really stress me out. So you might be wondering why I decided on spending 4 days in Kuala Lumpur? Truth […]Read More City Stresses & Searching for Freedom.
