2013.


this was one of the best years of my life. exactly 1 year ago i was readying myself for the biggest move i've ever made.  it was a matter of the heart and so i trusted it. by february 20th i was on my way to europe with all my earthly posessions packed away and only a 30kg suitcase by my side. i was running on adrenaline, excitement, emotion and above all, love. who was i to deny what my heart wanted most? 10 months on and i am experiencing the deepest kind of love. i love my new city, the culture she celebrates and the person i am becoming with the best kind of man by my side. my british blood is at home here and i am ready to take on the new year from where i stand.  life is way too short not to take chances and let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. it will not lead you astray. thank you to everyone who supported me this year, loved me and beyond all, believed in me. wishing you all a very happy, healthy and inspiring new year and i look forward to sharing my adventures with you in 2014.
