        Throwback Thursday: I have had a wonderful life.

        In so many ways, I have lived a most wonderful life and have been extremely fortunate to meet and get to know so many people at all levels and stages of life. I can now sit back and reminisce on these days, fully aware that they don't need to be ending. My quest for more adventures and my passion in travelling gets stronger and stronger every year - almost like a curse.

        With my current situation tied up in work on all fronts, I don't get to do all the journeys I want to do. At the same time, being fully aware that many people doesn't even get the chances I do. I also work with people that does not want to travel outside of their own county. These are people I just can't understand, I just can't comprehend why someone doesn't want to experience all the wonderful things the world has to offer and all the amazing people and their stories yet to discover. But, at the same time, I respect their thoughts... we can't all be alike.

        For me, given the right opportunity, I would always be on the move, always travelling - there is no peace anywhere for my restless soul.

        Clearly, working on cruise ships from a very young age didn't help this problem at all.... my work made the problem even bigger for me as I have grown older. The passion and the need to constantly "go somewhere" is disturbingly getting worse and worse... and I have no clue how to cure it.

        In the first image on this Thursday, I take you back to the years of my life which I consider some of the best. My only regret from these years is that we didn't have digital cameras and the technology we have today. Imagine if we had the digital cameras of today, with their impressive qualities, I would have photographed (documented) every single thing on board the SS Norway. Back then, with film rolls holding a maximum 24 or 36 images, and with the cost of the film and development, each image was a once-in-a-liftetime-chance. Each image was precious, and came at a cost.

        The second image that I treasure a lot is also from the mid 90's, possibly 1997 though I'm not entirely convinced. It was taken on the roof of a speeding local up-country bus heading to a remote provincial settlement in Thailand. Even that has changed dramatically now: these buses are extremely rare, these practices are now rare (travelling on the roof of a speeding bus), and these up-country settlements now all have paved roads fit for even cars. Back then, it was different.

        In fear of sounding like an old chap: "everything was better before".
