Return From Oz...


Well, it's good to be back. Sort of. The jet-lags not been too bad (so far) and there haven't been any major disasters while I've been away. It's mildly depressing to see some of the same shit is still here but at the very least I shall try and bring a sunnier disposition to it if I possibly can. It was a great holiday and I can't thank Davie and Craig enough for hosted me.

Traveling teaches you a few things about yourself and life in general I think. For a start it gives you more confidence in yourself and your decisions. Even on a simple level of deciding what to do with your day. It definitely helps put things into perspective too. And it also teaches you some things about yourself - or perhaps just reaffirms some things you already knew. So all good really.

But there are probably two things I shall take away from this holiday: don't like others just because they like you - see something in them that's worth knowing, and sex on the beach is not just the name of a cocktail.
