At least that is how I see it.

Or that is how it feels.

I am 50 today but I feel 40 or even 35. Perhaps I don’t know what 50 is supposed to feel like?

In any case, I feel I’m only halfway now. There is still a lot of fun to be had and right now I’m enjoying life to the full through exploring South America, a completely new continent for me to discover. I have added some photos of my first few days of my trip to Lima, Cusco and Machu Pichu in Peru and my travel style if you are interested. I’m regularly posting to Instagram is you like to keep up to date with my travels.

I’m full of ideas and plans and can’t wait to explore the next 50 years. I’m sure it will not be without its challenges but I’m determined to get the most out of them.

I hope you continue to join me on this journey through this site and other projects yet to be revealed!
