They say “if you never have a dream, you will never have a dream come true”. Well this blog is about my dream, so i have called it Daysdream. The aim of this blog is to let others know how my dream is working out. To inform you through pictures, video’s and a few written commentaries about the travels i have done since retiring from working life.
When i retired from work, i was living on the upper North Shore in Sydney Australia. I spent just over 14 years living in Sydney, after living in Victoria for 20 years.
I have two children, a daughter called Sarah, and a son Called Phillip. I have three Beautiful granddaughters, Issy, Lilly, and Tori
I once had a dream, a dream that i was a nomad, so I bought a brand new caravan, and i bought a brand new van to tow it with. I hitched it up, i sorted it out, and the next chapter in my life had begun. This is a big change from my usual lifestyle of 3 bedroom houses and nice gardens.
The following pages are my attempts to document my travels and experiences.
I don’t know when it will end, or where it will end, or even if it will ever end, but i am going to ensure that i make the most of my remaining days on this earth.
So come with me on a journey. Come and share my dream. Daysdream.
I have travelled to quite a few overseas countries in the past, and i look forward to going overseas again as soon as that is possible. I will update this section on overseas travels as soon as this planet is free of the Covid 19 Virus and we are all free to move around again.
I will update this with photos and videos as i travel from state to state.
I have had some stunning trips to places around Australia in the past, and i now have the opportunity to see a lot more of this country. Like a lot of people, my overseas travel has been restricted, so i will join the hoards of retired people that are living their dream, we are called the Grey Nomads.
It is our challenge to spend the kids inheritance, to live the kind of life we saw in our dreams. Its not the kind of life that is right for everyone. You have to have a thirst for knowledge and adventure, and not be afraid to meet life head on. I am not running away from anything, more like running towards something, something unknown, something just around the corner, or in the next campsite. As someone once said to me, “when you come to a fork in the road, take it” i used to wonder what the hell that meant, but now i understand! I know that not all who wonder are lost.
