About Me

My Photo
A child of Italian immigrants, born and bred in Australia. At 24 I purchased my first apartment in the city of Melbourne. Then I sailed around the world, on a record breaking, fast ship. I was the unqualified and only cook. I met my true love, though I didn't know it at the time. He didn't even get a kiss, before I continued my travels. In-between being directionless, I worked and educated myself to become a Nurse, Reflexologist, Reiki Master, Colonic hydrotherapist, and a First Aid and Occupational Health and Safety Trainer. Just as I was finding my feet in a self made career of sorts, he (my love) found me on facebook, 11 years after we had last seen each other. This time he knew how to get what he wanted. I call him The Captain on this blog. In May 2010 I moved to Denmark. I have always followed my heart, even the times it was beating out of tune, magic lies in mistakes too. Amongst other things, this is a love story.

26 Greatest loves of my life. Let's call it... Nature #atozchallenge





From tiny flowers



To towering tree's that whose branches attack 




Sunsets that bring forth the chill of night.





The Moon shedding her light,


Or travelling 




like a headache




across the sky.




Sunrises that hurt my eyes




Baby birds learning to find their way home


Colourful lovers that take a bite out of every pear



Questionable coastlines.


Perfect potatoes 



and rocks that smile, only after it rains... 





Nurture yourself
Nurture nature.



There is no turning back the clock... hang on a second.

    1. Thanks Suzanne, there has to be something wrong with people who don't connect to nature on some level.

  2. This was very creative! Sunrises and sunsets do hurt the eyes. Even with sunglasses on.

    Hugs and chocolate!

    1. I can never tell the difference between a sunset or sunrise in photos... I think that hardly anyone is up to see sunrises gives them that extra wow factor
