To be totally free my soul requires travel. I was born with wanderlust and the traits of a vagabond. My ultimate goal in life is to travel as much as possible, and help in communities where they need support.
My visit real travel experience where I have felt truly connected to the place and its people is Siem Reap in Cambodia (Home of the stunning and magical Angkor Wat.
I left Siem Reap with a deep attachment to the actual place and its people, and it is of no surprise to me really as I have always been ‘drawn’ there, but for what reason, I did not know. The poverty is so apparent for you to see, there is corruption and exploitation, but through it all the people are so happy. Leaving Siem Reap for me what not the end, but actually just the beginning.
If you wish to help some children of Siem Reap please consider donating to this wonderful cause

Some days she finds it so hard to motivate herself….it can be past eleven before she can drag herself out of bed. She has little in her life which seems to inspire her but when she gets a sudden wave she knows she has to run with it, because it never lasts long. There is not much that seems to keep her interested. She is just floating along, in second gear, no up no downs, no excitement….almost feels like nothing…
It has not always been this way, she remembers the days when she felt a tingle of excitement at daily things which happened in her life, everything was colourful. She was happy and despite difficulties she always got through it. Sometimes she actually enjoyed the obstacles. She cannot pinpoint the day where she became stuck in second gear. She does not feel bad enough to be in first gear…crawling along at 10 mph, or worst still at a complete stop. But second gear, lets face it she is coasting. Coasting through life.
What happened to the girl that always flew through life at 60 miles per hour, living life in the fast lane. Full of ambition, knowing that what she wanted in life she would get….
That girl has not disappeared she is still here, and she is desperately trying to shift back up in gears. She is assessing her life and re-focusing her energies on what she wants. She will be back achieving what she wants in life, it may just take some time.
I WILL NOT GIVE UP
Never let age define you….
I teach yoga to children and when people find out sometimes it is met with a comment such as “really….can kids do yoga?!” my response…..”of course they can, anyone can!”
Yoga has great health benefits, increasing flexibility, improving concentration and in my classes encouraging creativity….as we use story to capture the children’s imagination whilst incorporating yoga poses. The children also really enjoy relaxation time, with our lavender pillows and soothing music. In this day and age it can be difficult for children to find time for that much needed break.
