After a bit of thought I have taken the plunge and changed up the Blog. First thing to change is the name – although I plan to stay in Saudi Arabia for a few more years, I felt it was time to look to the future and the things I want to do in the long term and the name Saudi Arabia and other stories definitely had an expiry date.
I’ve never really given a lot of thought about what I wanted to do after my time in Saudi but for some time now I’ve been interested in nutrition and more recently in functional nutrition, with a Primal/Paleo slant, as I do believe in eating natural, wholesome foods that are as ethically sourced as possible. Recently I’ve also become a lot more interested in mindfulness and meditation and believe in a holistic connection between mind, body and spirit for overall health. With this in mind I want to explore these topics in more detail and to do some study in order to bring you more informed posts. For the time being posts will be based around my own personal observations and learning. My future plans involve gaining relevant qualifications to allow me to run workshops and possibly retreats on mindfulness and functional nutrition.
Rest assured the travel posts aren’t going away. Travel, exploring and having adventures is still very much part of my life and always will be. I love to travel and don’t intend to stop. However, there will be some posts covering the fact that you don’t have to travel to the ends of the earth on some great expedition in order to reap the benefits of travel – a trip with friends, family, or on your own in your own country can be every bit as rewarding.
I hope you will enjoy the new posts, please feel free to share your thoughts and feelings. Oh and bear with me as I may be changing the layout/theme and I’m not that great with the technical stuff…
