It’s weird, yesterday, and a world away…
another’s fear story, promise of tomorrow
replaced, four seasons, Lacking influence
finding again, myself breathes
Love, renewed, burns brightly
inspiration, motivation, hope
Life never ceases to amaze me with the possibilities, I am so blessed to now be experiencing life from a narrowboat, in the midlands of England. Being on the canals and rivers in a narrowboat is a very unique and calm way of life. It’s like a whole different world really, and has suited me quite well. I can’t imagine life any sweeter, but we will see… 😉
Until next time, these are a few pictures from my first week aboard…
I have reached the last destination, on my short european tour, Paris! From Notre Dame, to the Eiffel tower and all the other great places to visit, there is so much to do and see. I am not exactly sure I would agree that this is the “most romantic” city in the world, but it is a beautiful place to visit. I have only spent a few days here for now, I will be back.
Paris also marks the beginning of a new chapter. I feel though that this Nomad has finally accomplished what was set out for almost a year ago now; and have finally wore myself out of traveling (for now?). I have been very blessed to be able to check everything off of my bucket list, except the aurora borealis, wrong time of year now!
The places I have been, people I have met along the way, the unbelievable things that I have able to experience, have left me forever changed! I can say without question this has been the most amazing year of my life, so far! A huge thank you to everyone who has played a part in it, in any way. I am excited to see what unfolds ahead….
I have spent the last month on a detour from my original plan and made a pit stop back in South America. I was in Chile, and came up with only a few pictures to share from my time in Santiago. This time around I felt much less a tourist. I have experienced Latin American culture in a much more intimate way than my prior visit had shown me.
Having been oblivious to it in the moment, as usual, I am surprised a recent discovery; I am just a mirror of the universe’s flow. Power of creation is a really amazing thing, and just becomes more of a reality in my experience everyday! I am so eternally grateful for my life and all those who have, will and do continue to play a part in it.
Now, having cleared, one of one of those potential “what if” scenarios, Back on track…
On my final eve of what has been a great highlights tour, through a fair amount of places in about five weeks. The few little side-steps I have made will probably turn out to be the most memorable…
Sydney, Sydney in Brisbane.
and Melbourne, in different ways, you both stole my heart!
Great ocean road and the less than twelve apostles, stunning, didn’t see that coming.
Beautiful blonde Cairns, you will always be; bringing an old vision finally, to life!
Mardi Gras beginning, to the great reef finale. All that “Magic” packed throughout!
Knowing more magic is just ahead,
the nomadic ram roams on…
A bit more than week spent in Rio De Janeiro wraps up my time in South America and what an amazing a venture it has been! Rio is quite a crazy place, and I really can’t think of a better word for it. The way the city twists around the formations of the hills and rocks is very mesmerizing.
I have made many new friends all over the world as a result of my travels here in South America, and having been here I changed has changed me. I find it amazing how well people are able to communicate, even when they don’t share the same language. When you live life from a place of love, that’s all there is to experience. I am continually overwhelmed with emotions and a feeling of gratitude. I love creating, and am excited for what’s just ahead….
What a year it has been, I awake this morning filled with gratitude. My time in the Galapagos Islands coming to a close, this will probably be my final post from here. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experiences here. It’s quite inspiring to see how people live and love in different parts of the world. Also, how much diversity this place we all call home contains, it’s really quite spectacular. A bit wore out from all I have taken in, I am taking the next couple days to relax and prepare for the next part of my journey.
Whatever you give your thoughts to, you get more of, good or bad, it really is that simple. You are the captain of your own vessel, take control of it! I wish you the best year yet, don’t let it happen, make it happen!
having stumbled my way upon half three of
what turns up to be an escape, contemplate clouds
arousing thought like most currently eludes
fear, feeded from dark rock and awake beautiful
reality consumed. Love soul peace brightens-our
illusion show, ways to happiness of choice
desiring more to see truth, clearly before
it, appears a box from places no longer
valid, fearful history consumes, experience
if peering through a dream that clings tight
breeze through sporadic hiccups emerged
understanding of limitations uncovered
unfolding gratitude indeed, naturally.
Currently I am making base in Tucson. While here, I am spending time with some of the dearest people in my world, and as always meeting lots of new and interesting people.
My main focus however, has been gearing up for a full on backpacking, globe trotting adventure. I will be jumping around the U.S. a bit before heading out of the country around the end of the year. I have once again been blessed with an amazing opportunity to be able to do and extended amount of travel. This means this blog will get a lot more active again. I am so excited to share my continued adventures.
It is so awesome how the universe provides what you desire, when you keep focus! You truly are the creator of your own experience.

I have had quite the journey since arriving here in San Diego. With in ten days of arriving I met someone, who showed me what love is/can be. It was the perfect example of power of creation; he is everything I could have ever dreamed of, however, I failed to be specific enough in my creation. In fact, that was just it, I was being too specific. You see, I was asking for all these different things but in a compartmentalized way. The universe being perfect as she is; gave me all those things, all at once! A beautiful lesson learned; be steadfast in what you ask for, but don’t get too specific!
Quite like in the movies, paths cross briefly, only to preview what is coming. Current circumstances in our lives, and in world politics prevent us from being together in the present. Sidenote: I find it interesting that our governments allow us to visit other places, and then say “nope, you can’t stay there”. Our souls knows nothing of these lines we have drawn across the globe with our egos. It’s quite egotistical really. haha So the universe revealed my creation to me, and how I was not being steadfast in my creation. It’s laughable that I asked for Europe, check, I asked for love, check. I finally asked for something to fill some time between, check.Creation complete.
Now back to living in the moment, while being steadfast in my creation with an even greater goal. God, this is such an awesome journey, and it just keeps going….
