I GOT ME A HARDCORE CASE OF THE FEELS …

My heart seemed to grow, ten fold, in my travels. More love, more gratitude, more connection, more passion, more fire, more joy … It feels damn good. So I’m trying to relish and savour this absolutely phenomenal momentum and full o’ juice sensation. Gratitude time bitches. 1 // Old friends – who have overwhelmed me […]

Don’t get me wrong – I, like every other human with a pulse, get those all too familiar pangs of post holiday blues when returning home from an epic adventure. This week has been no different. Monday morning I woke, in my bedroom, at my parent’s house in Perth, and I longed for that delicious […]

Musings of my Messy Mind – a reflective post

Surviving Death Road (& how in a way I didn’t…)

  Cryptic title hey? I realised that all of our post ride celebrations were solely focused on our success & our conquering of the world’s most dangerous road – which, yeppp, is amazing and well worth celebrating (because, life) but I realised that there were certainly parts of me that didn’t survive the treacherous journey […]

This thought struck me whilst in midst of travel induced physical anomalies and needs me to start with somewhat of a confession. Traveling Emily ain’t so pretty & as I type this I’m 99% sure that I have contracted either a jungle disease or have been the victim of a voodoo spell that has caused […]
