Just breathe

We’re only a matter of days into the year and already it feels like one of epic proportions for me personally. Just a couple of weeks ago I had no idea what was heading in my direction – had I have done I’d have run screaming in the opposite direction to get away from it.Continue reading “Just breathe”

Broken friendship

Every so often you are blessed with having someone walk into your life and changing it for good. That happened to me back in September 2018. I was sat in a bar in a backpacker hostel in Uvita, Costa Rica minding my own business when suddenly life was never the same again. That person walkedContinue reading “Broken friendship”

Whilst most of my day was spent working in an office, I did take the opportunity to walk whenever I could (I’ve always tried to do thatContinue reading “Urban Jungle”
