These past few months I have been re-evaluating my life. I am truly blessed and have much to be thankful for; I have a lovely family and good friends. I have a nice home, a comfortable lifestyle and the freedom to do what I please. Spiritually I am healthy and happy and am confidant in who I am. Yet somehow that doesn’t seem to be enough for me. I guess you could say the last couple of years have been rather stagnant. I’ve come to realise that I am bored of being in the same place and am desperate to see more of the world.
I have been yearning for adventure and excitement and so I decided to do something about it. First of all I am moving abroad! Secondly, I am going to travel. I have plans to visit South America, Australia, Canada and revisit a few other cities around the globe, including New York, Dubai and Hong Kong.
This new chapter begins mid-March when I move to a small town somewhere in Europe; where I have no friends, speak little of the language and shall no doubt spend the first few months very lonely and isolated. But such trials and tribulations are good for the soul. Yes, it is a nerve wracking thought and at times I am exceedingly anxious about it, but I've always been an advocate of doing things with gusto and not in half measures! It’s healthy to be removed from ones comfort zone every now and then. Besides, it’s not too bad, for I shall be back in London once a month so shan’t go completely mad!
So I shall soon be swapping my comfortable home in England for a small, basic room in an apartment shared with an older lady... who speaks little English, but has offered to help me learn the language. My rent is the price of a meal for two in a nice restaurant in London. It shall be a case of going back to basics and I cannot wait!
Even simple lifestyles need funding and so I shall be returning to London once a month and shall also be available for bookings in Europe. I shall keep my calendar on my website regularly updated. At a later date, I shall be available for international bookings too. So, watch this space for more details and I promise I shall keep you abreast of my foreign adventures. I already have a trip to Dubai and LA planned. As I said.. I don't do things by halves!
