Continuous Travel, Continuous Music Creation

In all the things I want in this world, I’ve slowly figured out the two basic happenings I desire 🙂

To Travel and to Create Music – that’s it. In basic terms, someone can ask, what do you want to do with the rest of your life?

I want to Travel and Create Music!

Sure there’s a thousand things that fit into these desires; certain countries to explore, the kind of gigs I’d like to do, being on stage singing and talking about creativity and giving words of motivation to pursue what makes them happy, to create a family on the road, to home school those children, while continuing to travel and create music. There’s a whole list of buckets to jump in, a billion to-do lists to throw around in excitement. But many of those to-do’s are personal and will be better shown rather than spoken about.

Now I ask you and, you ask yourself;

What do you want to do for the rest of your life? Or at least for a large portion of your life?
What do I want to do for the rest of my life?

Maybe write it out in a journal and really delve into everything you desire, till you pick out the core components – the simple answer.

Note: I really don’t know enough about this life to know what I’m writing about. I’m just writing constantly in hope to bring someone value! and because I enjoy it and it helps me document the travel and music creation.


Live stream video from today’s busk in Caernarfon

The streets were quiet today, but it was still an effective day, where a whole range of people walked away from the music with a smile. Shop owners poked their head out to see what the sound was, noticing the eye contact and either smiling and waving or quickly darting behind the door then popping back out to smile and wave.

A gang of kids followed by their Mum, the one boy looked at the CD box,
“WHOAW you have CDs! Mum is this man a professional musician?! How much? Can I have one? I have a 10p, and it’s got a little bit of rust on it, just a little bit, where is it? Ah yeah, here, look! Just a little bit of rust!” his eyes filled with excitement, stretching his hand out to share this wondrously rusty 10 pence.
“Take one!” I said back,
His Mum replied, “Oh no, we can’t do that! It’s only 10 pence!”
“But Mum he said so! Look this one is a Dragon!”
The other children put some more coins in, and they all walked away happy. The excited child came running back after they reached the end of the street.
“Hello! Just wanted to say, thank you, we are going to listen to the CD on our drive home!”, said so quickly fuelled with excitement. Then waving and running back, he turned and shouted down the high street – “It’s a three hour drive!”.
Ha! Brilliant 😀


Too tired to write more! Arrived in another YHA in the middle of Snowdonia!

Motivation from Stationary Future Thinkings

They say its motivating to picture your dream life 5 years from now. But I feel its much more moving and powerful to picture yourself 5 years from now not having jumped for those dreams, not having quit that job you dislike, not having gone after that person you felt romantically towards, not having taken a leap of faith towards those ideas running wild in your mind, not having developed the skills you have. Just staying still in the routines and places you are currently in. When I visualise that, it freaks me out and motivates me to move forwards in so many ways, to develop myself as a person, to bring life to the ideas and goals I have inside, to take leaps towards romance, to travel new places and to experience new things.

If imagining that makes you content and happy, then that is amazing, and I’m truly happy for you! Happiness is so important. But if you picture that life and don’t like what you see. Then I emplore you to take a leap of faith, to not give in to fear, to continue and continue growing into the person you wish to be. We live every day, not just once. Each day is a new beginning if you so wish to allow it to be, each day opens new doors to learn and experience new things, each day allows you to connect with strangers and to meet new people. So take a stand towards the dreams and goals you have, give them life, step by step you’ll change your world and ultimately the entire world.

To have followed my gut instinct and quit a retail job I disliked 3 years ago has been one of my best moments. I look back and wonder who I’d of been if I didn’t just jump, if I stayed. Just grateful I did jump. This journey has been amazing so far, it hasn’t always been easy. Loneliness is the biggest enemy and at times quite a painful feeling. But the joy I feel to busk and share good energy on the streets to strangers is worth those moments of pain. There are a lot of things I wish to be and wish to have, but those things come with time and patience. Time and patience is something that I’ve learnt to have, they’re important, patience especially is so important.

Be kind to others and be kind to yourself!
