27.11.17.

Adventuring is in my blood, it makes me feel alive, it sets my heart on fire to the wild pursuit of exploring the unknown and delving deeper into the beauty and wonder of this vast world.

On Monday I found myself overly excited because my beautiful friend Tess asked me to go on an adventure with her. We had no direction or intention for the day, we were just free to roam where ever our hearts desired. We ended up in Newcastle, NSW, where we wandered upon a magical little mermaid hole just off the shore line. It was surrounded by the roaring ocean and a multitude of cliff face, textured and patterned so intricately. Beneath us was a whole new world of creatures, coral, seaweed and living organisms.

As we sat in the stillness of creation I felt myself feeling whole again. You see, over these last few months I have wanted to be alone. In that time my anxiety began to cripple me again and I found that dreaming became scarce. I stopped doing the things I loved. I stopped adventuring. I spent that time praying + seeking but I just found myself going around and around in circles.

God places different people in your life at the most perfect of times. I met Tess 5 years ago and she has been one of my most treasured friends ever since. Whether she knows it or not God used her in the most tremendous way this week.

Because of her asking a simple little question, my heart genuinely bubbled up with pure joy + excitement. A feeling I haven’t felt since America.

When I am given the opportunity to explore I feel the rush and adrenalin of adventure as well as the peace and stillness of my soul. When I am out in nature I find myself connecting to my creator in such a beautiful way. I am able to embrace and immerse myself fully in the wonder I’m forever marvelling at.

Please don’t ever stop doing things that bring you joy. Don’t let anxiety and painful thoughts hold you back from the beautiful opportunities that await you! The enemy is here to steal, kill and destroy, especially when you are on the verge of greatness! Don’t let him rob you of your joy, your gifts, your talents or your dreams. You have a God that loves & adores you. He has overcome the world and he is ready to take you on an adventure and invade your heart in the most indescribable way. All you have to do is trust and be completely open to his will.

Santa Barbra!

Beautiful, little Santa Barbara. This was Easily one of my most favourite places Gideon and I ventured to on our big American Road trip. We felt so content, free and at peace. I loved exploring this incredible town with my love.

From walking along the Wharf, to tandem bike riding, to sitting on the beach. We felt like we were actually able to relax and take a little break from travelling. We were able to fully emerge ourselves in all that Santa Barbra had to offer and that gave us the chance to recharge and get ready for our next adventure.

Hollywood!

If I am being completely honest, Hollywood was my least favourite place Gideon and I visited on our trip.

We loved dong the Hollywood hike but HATED down town Hollywood.

It was awful. So many people view it as this amazing place in Los Angeles, where all the stars live, full of glam. If you walk the streets all you get is rude people in a hurry, it’s a really dirty place and it is SO busy and chaotic all the time.

I am not saying Hollywood isn’t for everyone, this is just my personal opinion and experience of Hollywood. 10/10 would not go again!

Santa Monica + Venice Beach!

Venice, California is a very very interesting place! It’s really hard to explain unless you’ve been there and personally experienced it for yourself. It has it’s own individual vibe to it. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Walking along Venice beach was incredible. The beach it’s self is so long. It was so beautiful to see people from all around the world of different cultures and backgrounds experiencing the same joy of the ocean, together. I am really thankful I was able to experience something so beautiful.

Santa Monica had an amazing vibe, completely different to Venice. It was a place of all things fun and adventure. Everywhere you looked something was happening and everyone was happy.
