And forget not that the Earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. The world I saw hiking in Australia and New Zealand. 

Deep within the city of Auckland is a park that stands testament to long-term, generational thinking. For over a century it has been a place of beauty, serenity, and refreshment for the soul. Whilst all around it the land has been divided, developed and on-sold many times over for gain and more again, the park has remained a bastion against the restless speculative spirit of the city. It exists as land apart – consecrated to a different call. A call to legacy and inheritance. Cornwall Park.

Okura adventures on a special day. Once across the bridge the trail intertwines between coastal forest, groves of nikau, estuaries and headlands. You have to race against the low tide, which makes it cool.

I think it’s the human condition to be curious in life. Fear in different shapes keeps us away from exploring the possibilities of life experience. The only sane thing I can think of is to play with life. Play with fear. Play with existence. Play with love, the mountains, cities and even the unknown. Play is the value of everything.

I am an INFP dreamer in love with music, exploring, film, nature, the universe, the moon, stars, and sun. Carl Sagan says “Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.” Maybe one day we will cross paths on our journeys and experience the magical energy.

I’m a strong believer in the magic of the universe. This life is short, so I might as well say what I feel when I'm feeling it. You know those feelings of familiarity/ deja vu where everything is cosmically aligned and you’re exactly where you need to be? That’s what I feel when I get lost in your beautiful explorations and experiences. I feel like i’ve met you before, maybe because you're the sweetest humble individual, or maybe I knew you in a past life. (1/2)

There's a pizza place called PizzaRev here in LA, its super tasty. It kinda works like a Subway where you choose what goes on top of your pizza. I usually just do a mix of white sauce and marinara, chicken, sun dried tomatoes and basil. You should really try it sometime in 2016!

Thanks for the tip bro! I just had the best pizza that I have eaten this year. It was a mix of butter chicken and peri peri. It had the perfect ratio of base to toppings, the dough was soft yet crispy, and the flavour of a wood-fire oven encapsulated in the crust. The toppings had enough embellishments to define itself as unique, yet didn’t stray from the minimalist needed to bring out the flavours without clashing for attention. And the sauce was used sparingly to avoid oversaturation and sogginess. I tell you what bro, this pizza was awesome. I may have just found the best pizza in the southern hemisphere.

Let's talk about art and music and film and magic moments when you get to experience the beauty of the world yaaaz. When was a time when you experienced complete bliss and what were you thinking? What songs are you currently feeling, books you're reading, or movies you seem to find yourself relating to these days?

This is such a good series of questions, and it has been on my mind all day. During my travels of Europe last year I had many moments of bliss- the mountain waterfalls in Switzerland, dancing in the streets of Berlin, kissing my love under the stars in Florence, but there is one that particularly sticks out. After a night of adventures in Croatia, I found myself sitting on a beach, waiting for the sun to rise. While I sat there beneath the sky, next to the ocean, I felt really at peace with the world. Here I was, completely alone, thousands of miles from home, and yet so content. It was an amazing feeling. I didn’t need anything more than just the moment of seeing the sun rise on foreign lands. Happiness. 

In 2012 I had found a mountain range I wanted to scale before the year was out. I have a rule that i made with myself - if I ever failed an adventure three times in a season, I would take it as a sign to leave it alone for that year. Health and safety is more important than finishing a trail. This mountain range is truly beautiful. The mountain air is invigorating, the land feels magical, and your thoughts become clear. It is everything a person could want for the outdoors. On my first attempt conditions were rough, it was snowing, sub-zero conditions, the map ended up becoming unreadable due to the wet, and my two friends and I got lost. Somehow we ventured further than needed, and by the time we tried to correct, we were very weary. We must have walked 40kms of mountain trail that day, and were lucky to get out. On the second attempt I went solo. The night was filled with a big snow fall, thus the ground was knee deep in powder. The going was tough, just the soft sound of repeated steps into the white. After a few hours I felt a really bad vibe, and when I stumbled across fresh wild dog prints, I got out of there. It pays to focus on your feelings. I only had one more attempt, and took my brother and close friend along for the grand finale. Everything went perfect - the sky was clear, little snowfall during the week, and nothing went wrong. On those final steps up the peak, I felt an overwhelming sense of achievement and satisfaction and joy. It is difficult to describe but when you battle through so much and then reach the mark, pure ecstasy. Standing there and surveying the valleys and mountains below us, indescribable. Pure bliss. 

I watched Good Will Hunting last night, and what Robin Williams does in his role is incredible. That is a very inspiring movie, and like how it paints a picture of love that is realistic, something we need to do more often. There is line which really resonated with me ‘You’re not perfect, sport, and let me save you the suspense: this girl you’ve met, she’s not perfect either. But the question is whether or not you’re perfect for each other’.

I have been reading many things this week, but for that I could write on my thoughts endlessly. Thankyou for the prompt, very cool questions. 

Urban jungle. Spent last week in Melbourne, a city which has an amazing art and cultural vibe. It is known as one of the great street art capitals for its unique expressions of art on outside locations. It is so easy to get lost in time, wandering the endless lane ways.

I just read your description of Melbourne and absolutely fell in love; being a local, I don't often enough take a step back and appreciate the diversity and unique vibe the city gives off. Love your blog, keep being chill!!

It really is an amazing city - I think it will be a hub of culture and creativity in the future. Post-modern architecture sits neatly alongside grand Victorian buildings, historical art against heavily graffiti’d walls, and the people that wander the streets are full of character. We all forget how amazing our home town is, its easy to get caught up in looking afar for adventures. Thanks friend, keep being chill yourself.
