Some Amazing Moments

Whilst I am not amazing, I have been fortunate to have had some wonderful experiences in my 60 something years. These are a four of those wonders.

Dust and Dingoes, My 2016 Nullarbor Escape

There is nothing extraordinary or particularly significant that I can share about myself that is going to have you shaking your head in wonderment.

My name is Paul and with the major portion of my working life is behind me, I am redirecting my interests towards something a little more challenging than just getting getting out of bed in the morning. Although some mornings that is challenge enough.

For any number of reasons, none that I remember now, I did not start driving until well into my 19th year and so a humble Malvern Star push-bike was my major mode of transport between the ages of 13 and 19.

But having learned to drive, I turned my back on my two-wheeled travelling companion and forgot how much I loved cycling.

That changed about 2013 when I decided to start challenging myself again by tackling those bucket list items that had been filed as “one day I will” events.

They have now become “can I do that today” events or even an “I am really glad I did that” event.

Why do I cycle? – To clear my head of the unimportant clutter and listen to the natural background silence. It is my reset button.

A lot of the urgent overseas travelling has been accomplished (in part retold here) and now I am stretching the boundaries of where I can ride on a bicycle or walk on my own two legs.

I hope that you enjoy the rambling stories you will find on the pages and posts of this site.

They will not be literary masterpieces but they will be an honest account of my aspirations and experiences.

If you feel the urge, in fact you are encouraged to make a comment or two. I love the feedback and accounts of others triumphs.

Perhaps one day we will meet on the cycle trail somewhere.
