This is what I have ...

When you live in paradise a day in town with nothing to do but catch up on @youtube videos, and internet things without having to worry about bandwidth usage and the like can be just what the doctors ordered... Yeah... Might sound lame... But is all in the little things... ;) One of today's little things was receiving little monkey photos in the zoo and a 1hr and a half Skype chat with big + mid... Can say simple things really made me happy today... How about you? What #simplethings are making you happy!?!

Did you see this year’s  #YouTubeRewind ?? Dec20

Did you see this yea...

Is that time of the year again where The geniuses at Toutube choose the best videos we love to hate and hate to love and do a big mash up Celebrating the moments, memes, and people that made 2014 the year that it was… When I first started watching it I thought… hummm this year...

I Don’t sleep…  And when I do I feel like I might as well have stayed awake as the dreams I have are either amazing escapes I wish I’d never wake up from or scenarios that are so daunting that I spend hours awake trying to process… To decide which is the dream and...

Tou know some of those situations you get yourself into just because “why not?”? Yeah… I seem to have become the king of those and half the time i don’t even do it on purpose. Want some examples? The other day i got myself into trouble with The OS because i was being...

This is what I have ...

You know what? I've always seen myself as an urban soul (well... My handle everywhere shouts of Urban Voices...) Or an urban rat as me and dome friends used to say a few years ago... But hell... My view driving home sure beats the grey and grafitti and hours stuck in traffic driving home in London/São Paulo/New York and wherever else I drove home from work... The dramatic light, the colours, the views, the nature, the Smells... There's not a day where my jaw doesn't drop on my lap... I am constantly in awe... Same way I am perpetually confused... How's your drive home!?!

This is what I have ...

Oh!!! Looky looky what I just got from @porridgebrain !!!!! Time to go get creative methinks!! #exciting

This is what I have ...

This is the face I pull after driving 1178km in little under 16 hours... Home sweet home tho so hooray! Got invites for a rodeo type party for tonight... But I guess a shower is in order... Then maybe collapse in bed? Hehehe... Wish I'd had more time for stops and adventures along the way... But guess that's a story for my next road trip with THAT purpose... ;) Watch this spaaaaaace! Anyway... Home sweet home! And Shower with me!

This is what I'...

Time to leave Brasilia behind and with it friends of a lifetime. That is... Till the next time. Mr. Wolf is heading Stateside while I'm soon hearing back across the pond to the UK and as so our farewell and see you next time had to be celebrated in style with a beer or ten, loads of memories from 15+ years of friendship loads of laughs and the promise of holidays in Miami (SCORE). FUNNY how some things change... But others will always stay the same. May this immutable one be always what it is... And may many jumps across the pond be in our near futures! And here's to friendship! Carpet Diem!

This is what I'...

Brasilia by night... Its been a while but my heart still jumps fast and I am still in awe with this place you either love or hate (or love to hate?)... I was born here... Here is where home used to be... Here is where home will always be... #brasilia #brazil #travel

No idea how my brother does it!!! #scaredSHITLESS

...Sad/grumpy cut tree is sad/grumpy...

This is what I’...

So today I went for a walk to clear my mind... Been missing my kids and rethinking thoughts that have been going through my mind. Thinking of people that are way too far right now that I wish could be here with me... The sun is shinning, the flowers are blossoming, the birds are singing... And still... There's so much missing in that picture. Laughs and giggles and cuddles and the faces that make it all worth it. Then I breathe deep... And remember why I'm here... It gives me the strength of making it worth it... I wish you were here...

This is what I’...

Yesterday was a day of doing something I hadn't in far too long! Had almost forgotten how much I loved riding horses. We've been looking into buying a couple for EcoEscapes and might have just found the ones we've been looking for as well as a partnership to promote group horseback trips round some of the amazing trails around Sitio Meteora. I kinda love it when good plans get together. Only thing is... Well... I might have had developed a case of cowboy legs... my thighs are KILLING me! All worth it tho! Gotta Love it when partnerships are sealed with spit roast pork, artisan's cachaça and loads of laughs and fun between friends. Some old, some new... Still it felt like we'd know each other for a lifetime. Life rocks sometimes huh!?! ;) Carpe Diem!

This is what I’...

My heart almost jumped off my chest today... Driving on the way back to EcoEscapes my step-dad shouted STOP! STOP THE CAR! I've slammed the foot on the brakes so hard the car skidded almost into the fence dividing the dirt road to the cliff ahead. When I asked what happened he said! Look!!! A Toucan! And that species is pretty rare here too! None if us was carrying a camera today (damn it!) but I managed to snap a pic with my mobile before it saw me and flew away. It was perching in the tree a falcon usually rests. Good to see him there... Hello little friend. :) #sosmataatlantica

Sun, Nature, & Hot Babes!

Well… yeah… Hot as in Boling under the sun hot… Got you there huh? Anyway… This Blog is all about points of view. I’s all about the way Me and my guests see the world around us… I’ve been spending a lot of time at Sitio Meteora working in our (not so) little EcoEscapes project, so of course I’ve been blogging a hell of a lot about that so I’m guessing you might be getting a little tired of my daily antics… huh… snd Whilst Sitio Meteora IS a little piece of heaven, you might start thinking I am a tad Biased on that one… So… to settle that, I’ve put my GoPro...

Day 3 of having the plague... Getting bored of being in bed... But at least is better than my 5 hour stay at hospital yesterday... Anyone fancy some plague?!?

Creating The Perfect Exhibition Space Nov01

Creating The Perfect...

Exhibitions come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have a similar purpose: to present and display something to an audience. That ‘something’ may be brand new product range, a clothing line, or perhaps an art project; whatever it is, an exhibition’s aim is to introduce audiences to...

Travelling With Kids vs Travelling With Friends Nov01

Travelling With Kids vs Travelling With Friends

Looking back over my blog recently got me to thinking…I’ve travelled around a lot both alone and with company. I’ve traveled with friends and with my three little monkeys…and both have had their ups and downs. It got me to thinking as to which were the better companions… I could never say a bad word about my children, but there are certainly advantages and disadvantages to travelling with both. Here’s the conclusion I reached… Kids need constant attention. “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?”  Have we stopped? Then no, we’re not there yet. I love my monkeys, but my God can they...
