Wales – ‘National Parks and the Future Generation’

Some might say (as put by Oasis), that we live in an era that has over indulged in technology; where uploading on social media has become more fundamental than inputting into the brain; where we’re more connected, linked and wired but to all the wrong things. Is the most popular form of escapism focused on…



Wales – Nature, National Parks & Mental Health

Whether I’m walking within the Brecon Beacons, climbing mountains in Nepal or camping alongside volcanoes in Indonesia, the buzz, the hit, the feeling is still the same.  It ignites something within your soul, elevates your thought pattern and will colourise your life.  It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, whatever quest you’re on,…



Wales – ‘Wales’ Best Destination’

The Corn Du ridge is unusually straight and directly cuts the Beacons skyline; from a distance looking up it’s a very unique landscape with Pen y Fan peering from above.  At dusk the mountain is black and its detailed shape exaggerated against the lighter sky, at winter the white snow reveals the mountain’s bones and…



Wales – ‘This is Wales’

Walking along the Cefn Cyff mountain ridge, it’s difficult to not become totally engulfed by the vastness.  As the ridge heightens, there in the near distance I can see the peak of Fan Y Big and to its right Cribyn; the Beacons.  The carved valley between the two peaks provides a vacuum for the winter…



General Election – ‘Vote For The Future, Vote Labour’

I once worked in the Economic Development section for a local authority in South Wales.  There was a project run by our department that focused on young people, an officer would visit Comprehensive Schools and run a competition that aimed to develop the youngsters business and entrepreneurial skills. As a marketing professional, I would sometimes…



General Election – ‘Labour or Tory?’

The political saga of our world continues…Brexit, Trump, France (at least they made the correct choice) and now the woman who over the last year has been stating that there will be no early election within the UK, has actually called a ‘snap’ election. That woman sadly is our Prime Minister and will clearly lie…



Dharamsala -Manali – ‘Last Ride’

Some are here for the deep spirituality, to evolve and search for enlightenment; others study the wide range of alternative therapies healing mind, body and spirit; many visit for the diverse architecture and landscape, and I suppose lots just come for the hemp, growing openly in the mountains. I’m here for the Royal Enfield.  Is…



Jaisalmer – ‘Good Karma’

The desert men with white scarves, dark faces and dried out skin prepared the camels for the trek.  The sand spiralled in the warm wind and cold water relieved the dryness of my mouth.  However, this is not a desert tale as such, but more a story about goodwill, karma and an unforgettable character, by…



Jaisalmer – ‘Thar Desert Sky’

It was never that dark, the light of the moon lit up the desert sands like a mystical spotlight from above.  Laying amongst the rolling dunes and looking up it’s easy to detach from the chit chat of your brain and reconnect with collective consciousness of the universe.  Staring up into the vastness, noticing the…



Udaipur – ‘City of Lakes’

Disappearing behind the Aravalli hills, the sun leaves nothing but a captivating orange skyline.  No longer does Lake Pichola reflect the glaring light, it is now left in a peaceful darkness, the water transforms to a sheet of black.  The peaks of the hills border the lake, guarding the charm, architecture and history that exist…
