Living a double life

It’s true – I’m living a double life! My world-class love affair means that all up I have spent five months of the past 12 in the USA, the rest back here in Australia. I now have two addresses, two mobile phones and associated numbers, two plugs for my laptop, a wardrobe split in half, … Continue reading

What about wellbeing?

Wellbeing. Its a good word. Being well. What does ‘well’ mean? Absence of unwell-ness? Vibrant health in mind, body, heart and soul? I think that’s the one that resonates best with me, and is certainly what I am forever seeking and being mindful of. Always a teetering and tottering of the scales of balance, and … Continue reading

Stuff and nonsense

So sometime this year I will be moving to the USA to be with my love. Visa pending, timeframe as long or short as a piece of string. Meantime I am living with my friend, working nearby, while my STUFF is in storage in her garage. To give me a guide ahead of time, I … Continue reading

Long-distance love

Okay so I know we’re not the first couple in the world to have a long-distance relationship. I’m picking its happening more and more often with the ease of travel and/or communication channels these days. Certainly because my radar is up for it, I’m hearing many stories of people who are doing or have done … Continue reading

The great adventure called love

Today I realised that I’ve been feeling like Charlotte in the Sex & the City movie. It was at the end of a walk in the early autumn-leaved woods with my honey. We got there early after dropping his daughter off at school. Rock Creek Park in DC is en route between her school and … Continue reading

Domestic bliss

The reason I’m in USA is due to love. I went and met an American man you see. Not exactly in the life plan, but often the best things in life aren’t the things you can imagine ahead of time. So just when I thought I’d be quietening and simplifying my life by moving to … Continue reading

That’s what I said

Being understood in America with an Aussie/Kiwi accent is an adventure all of its own. I said in my last post that Kiwis have a deadpan mumble and my Kiwi friend in London picked me up on it…perhaps I’m only talking about me?! Regardless, there are less highs and lows in the way I speak … Continue reading

Different yet the same

One of my favourite things about travelling and being in a new place is discovering social and cultural differences, big and small. I think of it as my anthropological study of the world…it was my best subject at university before I wandered off into different things, but in reality I’ve never stopped studying it. It’s … Continue reading

Curvy yogi?

I’ve spoken about adventure in previous posts, explaining the adventure part of my blog name. But what of curvy yogi? I got to thinking about this after finding myself compelled to comment on a fellow bloggers’ site as she came to the decision to become a yoga teacher despite feeling she is not the typical … Continue reading

Child’s play is simple

So the BIG adventure I’m on right now is spending the summer and early autumn in the USA, with a view to longer term (it’s all motivated by love, but I’ll talk about that another time). This isn’t the first country I’ve moved to. I was born in and spent the first 25 years of … Continue reading
