I get it. money matters but we don't need money to live we need money to survive. So why do so many people spend there lives working in some crappy job that they hate waiting everyday from the time they walk in hoping the day will go quick? why are we wishing are lives away for money. Yeah it's nice to have nice things but why do we all do things we hate just to buy new clothes and new things that we don't need.
Last year I quit my job to travel yeah I know you need money to travel. I loved my job for many years and was very passionate about what I did but as soon as I started wishing my days away I made a change. Iv started a new path and discovered new things I'm passionate about that I can change my life with. Traveling has made me realise that all the best things in life are free! As cliche as it sounds all you actually need is family friends and love. You can walk up a mountain,swim in the sea, go see some of this beautiful world that won't be here forever instead of wishing your life away. Now that's just me and things I like but why are you scrafising your life for a job you hate. why not get a job you love even if it means working less or working for less. Then at least when you have to sacrifice going to a friend's wedding or your child's dance show at least your not just doing it because you feel you have to. we all need to remember that our employers need us more than we need them. You can go get another job but they will never replace you because there's nobody else in the world like you and if they think that there is then why waste your life somewhere that you don't matter. We all need the freedom to be able to do what we want and if something is important to you it should be important to the people around you that being your friends and family or your boss. Time is the most important thing in the world we don't have enough of it and we spend most of it working. I sacrificed a lot for other people not just in work but in life constantly saying yes and trying to please everyone and ended up making myself ill in the process and getting very little back. It seems the world has forgotten how to say thank you. now i realise the things and the people worth making scarafises for will never make you do anything but will always be grateful. Life won't wait So why are you? stop and think and stop sacrificing your happiness for someone else. live your life. Say no every once in a while.You need money to survive not to live.

First time in Australia seeing kangaroos and we got to feed them and they where wild. I only took pictures of the cute baby ones.One of them was huge and looked like the rock. They are actually pretty scary looking things when there fully grown. x

Last weekend I was invited down to disconnect festival in fairbridge western Australia by a girl called Isabella that was doing a pop up festival hair stand.

I had a great time doing lots of different festival styles. Then got to have a look about the festival site and hear some music. We then set up camp for the night under the stars (kind off) Isabella a jarryd reversed the ute under the marqee and we backed the trailer under the other one and made a make shift tent/den.

Was a great weekend met two lovely new friends and also lots of other nice people as well as getting to do some fun hair styles.

You can't go to Thailand without getting a bamboo tattoo. I was so excited about getting one done but I thought I'd have to wait until after my diving. NOPE! you can get a bamboo tattoo and get straight back in the water the next day. SO first day we arrived in koh tao it was raining and we had nothing better to do so off we went to bamboo tattoo in chalong bay and got tattoos.

It is a lotus flower which symbolises enlightenment and the other symbol is a unalome. This symbolises the path to enlightenment and the path we have to take to get there. The bends represent the wandering to become more conscious of your surroundings. Both are Buddhist symbols.

I got to have the most amazing experience whilst in koh tao I got to meet the turtles.

The turtles are looked after by conservationists on the island until they are big enough to be relesed in the ocean. As baby's they have little chance of survival. They are trying to help repopulate the island with turtles.

I got the amazing once in a life time chance to help out by holding the turtles whilst the conservationists applied antibiotics to them as some of them have skin conditions.

hopefully one day il get to see one of these guys swim past me in there true ocean home.

I fell in love with parrot fish and the ocean. It's not somthing you could ever describe to somebody the feeling of being weightless and all the amazing things you see the corals the fish the colours. The pictures don't do it justice. I could spend the rest of my life on a boat just eating and diving and colouring in the afternoons in the sun. Met some amazing people here and ate some pretty good food with them, made memory's that will last a life time. Going to ocean sound dive & yoga was the best choice for doing our open water and advanced we had the best teacher ever tanja but everyone there was so nice and friendly leaving is too difficult but we will be back here for sure.
I am now officially a mermaid

We didn't have loads of time in Bangkok. Partly due to me being hungover after Halloween and spending a whole day in bed. But we did manage to see some really beautiful temples, have a look around the giant shopping malls, ride a few tuk Tuks and go to the sky bar.

The elephants in Thailand I doubt will ever be free and even the "sanctuarys" make them into a tourist attraction and make them trek with tourists everyday and swim with them I don't think this is freedom even if they aren't being ridden they are still being made to work. There are very few places iv seen that you just go and look at them and you don't trek or swim with them. These beautiful creatures don't know what freedom is. They had there spirits broken regardless of whether they are in a sanctuary or not because they will have been beaten with a bull hook at some point to make them submit to the humans that train them. I understand that some places no longer do this but it's still happened at some point and a lot of places it seems still use a Bull hook as a threat. I looked at ethical places to go and found one place with baby's and you just played with the baby's all day but how can I go and fall in love with these baby's then give there captures money to beat them into submission when there older so they can be riden. Atleast the no riding places are stoping that circle but they'll still need to find some way to control these animals if there going to let them interact.

One of the saddest moments in my life was going past one of the elephant camps and I'm close to tears writing this. They had them chained up outside like a big advert 3of them in a hut only just big enough for them no room to move. We stopped and the man came over and started making them do tricks and the thought of what they went through to learn that and the fear they must feel of getting it wrong broke my heart I just looked at the man and walked away. Then as we were going down the road there we see two elephants being riden by 3 tourists each and one of these tourists was up front holding a bull hook. Why are people so ignorant! I know we do the same to horses we break them in so they can be riden but not by beating them! And a horse can actually carry more weight on its back than an elephant these animals are not designed to be riden and deserve to be free. So much is done to save the elephants in Africa but what about stoping the abuse in Asia and educating people properly instead of making people think this is ok.

Awsome food and awsome market shopping. Really that's all I need to write. We only stayed for 1 night and a day and a half but we explored the town and it was a lovely relaxed place but you need transport to get out of town. And seeing signs for tiger kingdom everywhere was just starting to get annoying so onwards to pai.
Ps my sushi in the picture only cost me £1 and so did the froyo!

4.30am up bright and early for the sunrise tour. Good time to go as its not too hot and it's apparently not as busy. It was really busy even though it low season, we watched the sun come up and decided to skip the first stop and move on to another temple. This meant we pretty much got every temple to ourselves or occasionally for 1 or 2 people.

The second temple was full of monkeys that had just woken up walking about the place which was great to see.
All the temples where amazing and they are trying to restore some of them. There are 11 different country's helping with the restoration by funding and providing experts and technology to work out what originally went where. It was nice to just wander around and explore and you get to climb through and inside a lot of them which is good because you get a proper view of how big they once where and how detailed the structures once looked.
Best end to Cambodia.
