I have enjoyed a life of great adventure and travel...many of those places that I dreamed of, that I envisaged are now so familiar to me that I almost know them better than my own home town.

What do I wish for now? What do I dream about in the quiet moments....I am almost too afraid to write these thoughts down in case the clarity of the words might tempt my fate...but the truth is most of the time I wish for the simple....for health, for happiness, for all of us...and I wish for romance, for love and for friendship.

Yet sometimes my mind remembers and runs with the speed of my youth and I fantasise about the far flung, the extraordinary... About yoga in the Himalayas and finding than zen moment... about travelling to Norway to go dog sledding under the northern lights... about a safari in Namibia along the Skeleton Coast or a hike in Patagonia...and from time to time I can't help but make believe that these adventures are mapped out in my future...
