Travel Blog: Week 62

Perth, Australia and Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand Week 62: 13.01.2014 - 19.01.2014 My mind seemed a little free'er this week and so I was more interested in doing things..... Monday:- I had a huge breakfast to start the day - scrambled egg on toast and a smoothie. It's scientifically proven that a good breakfast sets you up for the day. I did a home workout, managing my ten full push-ups (just!!), and then a good meditation. Today I was going to

Travel Blog: Week 61

Australia Week 61: 06.01.2014 - 12.01.2014 This week was pretty much one of reading (I clocked up a number of books including the delightful 'Alchemist' which follows a young shepherd through his journey to discover his life purpose!!!) sunbathing and contemplation. I still seemed to have things on my mind and needed time to consider them and hopefully let them go. Having Ange and Nigel around helped as I could talk through things, and their wise words seem to still the

Travel Blog: Week 60

Australia Week 60: 30.12.2013 - 05.01.2014 Monday:- I didn't sleep too well - too warm! Can you believe it!!! I lounged in bed for way too long and eventually got up around 10. I made a smoothie - coconut water (of course), mango, banana, kale and ginger. And to ensure I had a balanced breakfast I also had buttered toast. I showered, changed and meditated. It had been way too long since my last one. It was a beautiful day and

Travel Blog: Week 59

Northern Thailand - Chiang Mai and Australia Week 59: 23.12.2013 - 29.12.2013 Monday:- The sun was out and I took a chair, plonked it in the front garden and soaked in the warmth whilst I ate my breakfast. Coco, the dog, and the cats had settled down and calmly joined me in the sun. I really didn't want to do anything today. I had everything I needed so stayed home ...in the sun! I did do a workout but spent the

Travel Blog: Week 21

Australia, Singapore and other places Week 21: 01.04.2013 - 07.04.2013 Monday:- Not feeling at my best today, so I dosed up on just about every type of vitamin supplement, throat gargle, herbal tea and headache tablet I could find and went back to bed. I even missed a trip to the tropical fish shop. The second of the Crawley's fish tanks was back in action and they bought some guppies, hoping they would settle in and breed. Watch this space for

Travel Blog: Week 20

Australia Week 20: 25.03.2013 - 31.03.2013 Monday:- Dragged myself out of bed about 8:30, so by then the house was empty. In true couch potato style wanted to watch TV whilst having breakfast - I could have too if I hadn't of lent on the remote and somehow switched off the satellite. No connection. No TV. Hey ho. Did laundry and stuff - you know those things that take time but you have nothing to show for your efforts. Off to

Travel Blog: Week 19

Australia Week 19: 18.03.2013 - 24.03.2013 Monday:- Well as it happens plan B was required but not because of the rain. After a few hours of sleeping the poor tree I mentioned earlier was uprooted by our weight and we ended up on the ground. The tent came in very handy and the open panel at the front revealed the morning sun rise.            Bleary eyed we packed up and headed back to Exmouth. A few stops for provisions

Travel Blog: Week 18

Australia Week 18: 11.03.2013 - 17.03.2013 Monday:- I was still feeling knackered from the long day on Saturday. Didn't do much of anything. Although I did manage a trip to the cinema - Beautiful Creatures. I was the only one in the screen. Well almost, 2 women turned up just as the film started. It was an OK film! I made Spag Bol for dinner. Everyone would be eating it - I think the meat would just about stretch to

Travel Blog: Week 17

Australia Week 17: 04.03.2013 - 10.03.2013 Monday:- I didn't wake up until 9, grabbed a glass of water and went back to bed. Finally surfaced at 11. Ange, Nigel and the boys had been up for hours and were now having elevenies - it's a national holiday today. So breakfast was a hot cross bun and a cupcake. Not particularly nutritious but bloody lovely. Strangely I didn't do much until around 2 when we went to the flicks - "I give

Travel Blog: Week 16

Australia Week 16: 25.02.2013 - 03.03.2013 Monday:- A slow start but one of the joys of living a carefree life is that you can stay in bed as long as you like - bliss!!! Ange and the boys left for the day. Smoothie time! The morning was lazy with the occasional helpful moment hanging up the washing etc. A quick skinny dip in the pool (sorry Ange and Nigel but it had to be done) before heading out for the shops.
