Travel Blog 20; Don’t Sweat The Mind Set

So after a record amount of time spent in one spot, since leaving home, Tha Bozz has finally left Sydney. When I first arrived in Sydney in late March I didn’t even want to be there. The idea of leaving my spot in Perth for one in Sydney felt like the equivalent of trading a…

Travel Blog 19; Life is a Blessing

Honestly, this post was originally going to be a lot different and come out a lot earlier and not just because my computer crashed and completely wiped away all memory of the original draft! I’d planned for it to be an obnoxious, graphic and detailed celebration of the Skydive that I had done with my…

Travel Blog 18; Just Think!

We’re living in a time where a lot of folks booze Whether sitting in a bar or sitting in their front rooms Some say its made for profit some say for fun Some say its even made to keep the population dumb It can loosen you up when your out with your friends So you…

The Year of the Box Office Bomb

So The Mummy dropped last week and it sucked, like really sucked. In all honesty, and without trying to sound too pessimistic, I thought it would. Cruise is too old for the action-star shtick, Alex Kurtzman has only directed two full-lengths including this and the trailers came across as flat, soulless and completely lacking the…

Travel Blog 17; 5 Signs That You’re Growing Up

I turned 27 a couple of weeks ago. Just had to let that opener sink in for a few minutes, I don’t quite know how it happened but I cant quite shake the feeling that this is all somehow Theresa May’s fault. I don’t know, seems like everything else going on at the moment is….

Travel Blog Part 1; Sorry its Late!

So its been just over 5 weeks since I boarded the plane out of ol’ blighty and headed head-first into the unknown or as its otherwise known; the Southern Hemisphere. I promised myself I’d be more on the ball with the blogging but due to issues involving prehistoric wi-fi, writers block, the fact that laptops…

A Hard Goodbye to a Great Job

I’m actually quite excited right now. I mean why the hell shouldn’t I be? I’ve just checked the forecast and its currently 30 degrees in Nadi with little to know chance of precipitation, keep in mind as I type this its only 8am. The Kiwis are so hyped over the World Cup result that there…

A Most Educational Hangover…

This Monday at long last I finally felt life starting to creep back into my bones. The headache started to wear off, my breathing returned to normal and it’s getting easier to regulate my body temperature. No I haven’t been sick (despite several bouts of vomiting), I haven’t been in a fight (actually I might…

Over-thinking about Over-thinking

As you probably hadn’t noticed I haven’t written anything for a week. Last week was a tough one; my future replacement at work started the job and embarrassingly enough she’s probably already just as good at it as I am, I had last minute dental and optical appointments, I’m trying to get somebody to buy…

Travelling; Fear Verses Excitement

A cracking lady by the name of Lailah Gifty Akita, founder of the Smart Youth Volunteers Foundation in Ghana once very eloquently said; “Do not fear the unknown, dare to be adventurous in life.” I like that quote because it’s simple. It doesn’t sound like it’s trying to confuse or talk down to anybody and…

My Friendship, My Mistake & What I’ve Learnt

Throughout my life I’ve been fortunate enough to have a number of friends from a number of different places at a number of different times. I’ve moved around so naturally some have come, some have gone, some are still here and some aren’t. I’ve never really been bothered when any of them have disappeared except…
