Is it me or does it seem like the start to new year is full natural disaster and bad news ?
Lets start with the floods in Queensland Australia, utterly devastating for the driest Continent in the world, how do you deal with so much rain when your not ready for it ? Peoples life's are in turmoil and may never be the same again.
Be it the wettest, the coldest, the hottest, the driest new records seem to be apart of life at the moment, it's hard not to start pointing the finger at global warming and climate change again.
But hold on we are in recession we can't be thinking about that, lets go out and buy some more useless shit to make us happy for a while, who cares if it ends up in land fill..

What else, the scare mongery the British press try to put on us daily. Petrol price rises, Tube strikes, more bad weather on it way, VAT at 20%, Unemployment at an all time high and killers on the loose, also who gives a fuck about these so called celebrities ?? Well that it may be but i get the feeling their trying to wind the public up. But it gives us something to moan about. The British love a good moan and bitch. It sells... and am doing right now.

"City life" that's another topic altogether to follow...
OK good news is i got my new super primus multi-full stove and am starting to look forward to few trips this year in which i can us it. Back to basics, life is bliss..

New year, new start.

So it's 2011. Time to reinvent myself and set new challenges....

Not that i had any complaints with 2010, in fact it was the most productive and rewarding year to date.
I finally achieved my burning ambition to travel around India, which was truly amazing on many levels. I also spent time in Burma (Myanmar) for an altogether different experience.
This trip helped me overcome fears and filled me confidence to embark on the next chapter, which was just around the corner.

I moved back to the UK for the first time in 7 years, although at first (in mind) it wasn't to my liking as it seemed to be backward move, i in fact progressed several rungs on my career ladder.
Quite amazing i never sort after this position, it found me in a sleepy little South Yorkshire village.
I often stand back and the lyrics from the Talking Heads song "Once in a lifetime" appear "How did i get here"
I also got to spend time with family again, which has been an absence almost all of the last 11 years. A cycling trip to Normandy in France was a great opportunity to get to know my big bro for seems like the first time.

As i spend a lot of time around Eastern Europeans at work i thought it would be beneficial to make a trip over there to understand more about there culture and Ukraine was my destination of choice.
Unlike anywhere I've been before, but again i left with a positive feeling.

If 2011 can bring me the same excitement, challenges and rewards I'll be very happy and full filled indeed. I have travel ideas, physical tests and a whole new start by the end of the year to come.

Am looking forward to it already.....
