Growing up is hard…

It’s been more than 6 months since my last blog post, which is a pretty poor effort for someone who wants to make a career out of writing!

I-may-not-be-there-yetI’ve spent the last six months busily trying to grow up. Growing up is hard.

As much as I would still love to strap my backpack on and jump on a plane back to the magical mountains of Canada or go trundling off on a new adventure; I’m not, I’m doing the right thing, getting myself out of debt, maintaining a stable income, honing my craft and trying to grow up.

It’s been easy to lose sight of this travel writing/photography dream and sometimes it seems easier to give up on it altogether. But then I’m not a quitter, when you fall off the horse you just have to get back on.


So I’m trying to stay positive and motivated and realizing that going backwards is actually forwards, it’s setting the foundations for the future. One step backward, two steps forward…

  1. I agree with your first poster. Though I know where you are coming from. It is easy for me to say ‘bugger it, lets just chuck the lot in and go travelling again next year’. But realistically we have done it all, the kids are grown up and have had kids of their own, we both have a house each, and we have no ambition left, apart from seeing everything the world has to offer. 33 countries last year just gave us a taste, we are off again 🙂

    So sure, aim high, work hard, realise your dreams, but for pete’s sake DON’T GROW UP!!!
