Love. Romance. I'm definitely not an expert in either, and I have definitely spent far too much of my life hiding behind idealism and romantic fantasy. It could never be as good as it is in my head so why bother, right? Wrong! I am choosey, but not in a shallow way. I only want … Continue reading Love. Romance. What’s it all about?
Releasing attachment to the outcome is a concept that, for a while, I found it difficult to wrap my mind around.

One of the speakers, Nina Lyon, made a comment about our inability to get truly lost in our home country … Continue reading The Importance of Getting Lost

I first met Jen when I attended one of her seasonal gathering workshops last Autumn and was quickly won over by her kind and loving personality, her knowledge, and her gentle style of teaching (read my post about the gathering here).

I met Danielle in Auckland earlier this year when she asked me if I wanted to join her and her friends on a hike up Mt Eden. I was quickly drawn in by how warm and friendly she is, and was massively impressed by her love for running marathons, fitness, hiking and exploring - a personal journey that … Continue reading An interview with the T-Rex Runner, Danielle Cemprola.
New Zealand is an extraordinary place for an adventure. Between the lovely people and stunning landscapes, it is impossible not to fall in love with it.

But, here are my top 5 highlights from the North … Continue reading New Zealand: North Island Highlights
