Resistance to change. (And why I like turtles more than balloons.)

Resistance to change is such a fascinating phenomena. We see it in all sorts of ways and places. I'm not immune to it myself. We all have things we like or are attached to.   But at some point, if we want 'things' to be different, we can't just sit and hope and pray, (if [...]

Why I couldn’t climb Uluru.

How often have you caught yourself saying "I've always wanted to do that" or "I've always wanted to go there" but never really stopped to think about what it would take to make it happen? For me personally, I do it all the time. Whenever someone would mention Uluru, or I'd be overseas and someone [...]

Taking photos & making memories.

I know there's one school of thought that says, when you're out there living life you should put your damn camera away and just take it all in. And fair enough too. We've all seen people 'watching' concerts through their smart phones instead of being in the moment. So I completely understand why people say [...]

In 2016, went back down, weather was crap again, tour got cancelled instead, managed to head on over to the Coorong for [...]

Why it’s time to ditch the GPS

We all know the beloved road trip is back in a big way. In 2015 I spent a month road tripping through the USA, and in 2016 I road tripped through New Zealand for two weeks, then here in Australia I did Uluru, Sydney to Adelaide via the Aussie Alps, Melbourne to Adelaide via The [...]

Glowing with the flow.

With its retro, glow in the dark theme, it would be easy to classify the Afterglow Half Marathon as little more than one of those novelty runs that are all the rage these days, but make no mistake, this is a serious, and seriously beautiful twilight trail run event. For me though, a race is [...]
