Tales from the far-flung Faroes – BBC News

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/resources/idt-sh/faroe_islands_postal_service

Finally an article this week worthy of sharing …

Sometimes, when I’m driving around this city I don’t really call home, I wonder if leaving my hometown was such a good idea. There was something I really enjoyed about growing up in a small inland town.. hills and treks to explore, adventures in the wilderness … sorta wilderness.. snowy winters when it would be 8 or 10 below zero outside and i could still go out in shorts and a tee shirt .. days spent extracting myself from the town and its people, wandering semi aimlessly in the hills and trails of some old forgotten gold mine town now nothing more than stone stumps in the dried inside grasses .. before we were over run by mobile phones or connectivity en-mass ..

Places like these, now seen in other photographers traveling blogs or NatGeo still being back to mind those beautiful peaceful memories of my childhood.

This endless consumption of our childhood souls by the ever growing ever consuming monster that has simplified yet overly complicated and controlled our lives through the advertised need and manipulation of our inherent desires to be connected yet lazy at the same time..

The digital detachment we have come to crave isolates us from the reality that your bare feet in the waters of the sea is how we came to be on this land .. by boat, float, on the back of a swimming goat… well possibly not a goat.. But still.. that would make for an interesting story.

Go out and explore.

Photographer travels to 37 countries to prove that real beauty is everywhere

http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/beauty/66337423/Photographer-travels-to-37-countries-to-prove-that-real-beauty-is-everywhere

Yeah sounds like yet another person who wanted an excuse to visit countries and annoy the natives.

Or.. was it ? Ummmm

Mind you… I do it 🙂

Watch “Will Marshall: Tiny satellites that photograph th…” on YouTube

This is so cool..  surprised it took this long to happen.. but then again…

Ps  if you’re thinking along the same lines as I am… then we already know the future.

This is an automated blog entry… because…

 

Well.. because, I assume when it decides it’s going to post its self…

it should be about 5 or 6am NZT, I could well be at an airport,

likely getting through customs, or on a plane, or picking my nose.

WHAT! you say, an airport.. ??  yes, picking my nose.

I haven’t been to Australia for about 30 years.

Do I miss it ?  can’t remember it to know if I do or not.

Do I care ? I didn’t used to, but I do.

It’s the ‘almost’ beginning of my new journey in life.

The ‘actual’ beginning began 4 years ago when I started going to Hawaii to visit a very dear friend ( and I shall, with luck, continue to do so, so long as i have the means to).

 

So, what is so important to make me want to go there, or, even expand this journey?

Simple:
Friends.
Good soulful people with whom we have created a friendship out of common interests, non judgementally, honestly, openly, accepting of our individual beliefs, cultures, taste in weird food, ice cream flavours, hair colours, and maybe just a little craziness Smile with tongue out

But in the end.. because there are still good people in this world, and we should make the effort to attach ourselves to experiences that we would not have normally had, had we decided that the world or people we would otherwise have known didn’t matter.

Over the coming years, I will endeavour to go and visit more countries that contain more of these beautiful and amazing friendships that have been forged, to meet these people ‘in real life’, to connect and to enjoy, to breathe and walk with them, to share and experience some of what life is like for them, and hopefully to make both our lives a little less mundane, a little more expanded.

I hope, that they in turn, some day, in some way, may be able to do a similar thing, for someone they know. I hope.

We should all do this though, even if it’s only ever once in our lives, even if it’s just within our own country, city, or neighbourhood. Step out of our little plastic containers that we live in, and remind each other that outside, is a whole world of adventure and wonderment just waiting to be discovered.

Remind ourselves that it doesn’t matter who we are, where we come from or what we do, we are all the same people, we are all the same.

Except maybe the really crazy ones, but, hey, even they may have had a heart or common sense at one time, but decided that politics was a better choice for them. Oh did I just pick on a group of people… maybe I did. Winking smile

 

Anyway, it’s… 11:22pm, Wednesday the 25th of June 2014.. right now.
And I’m going to get some rest, I have an early flight to catch.

 

See if you can guess where I’m going later this year, and next year.

 

Might be your country… want to hang out, eat ice cream ? Drop me a note, comment here, or on Facebook, … lets chat Smile
