I am back from my trip to Egypt and what an adventure it was!
Inspiration and Chaos
It was a whirlwind of events, inspiration, emotion and culture shock but inevitably, on the plane home, I started processing my experiences and began to drift into the abyss of ‘what am I doing with my life?’.

If you fall off the bike, dust yourself off and get back on again. Who’s looking anyway? You will be amazed at how other people don’t really care about your failures, it’s more about your damaged ego than their perception of you, so what have you got to lose?
