Wise Words that Stuck Like Glue

Even in what I wrote yesterday, I attested to the fact that I really should practice what I preach, but the reality is that it’s not always that straightforward. A while back, I wrote about my morning ritual and how great it is to have a mini routine to set me up for the day,…

Making Changes that are Scary

It’s so easy to fall into a rut in life and just continue along a path that we’ve started walking down simply due to the ease of the steps. The familiarity drives us to keep on walking and the comfort of knowing everything that’s there is second to none. It’s the simplicity of carrying on…

Instagram for Inspiration

Social media is a funny thing. It has a bad rap recently with different groups of people for different reasons. The biggest factors being that of body image or comparing our lives to those of others. At least that’s what it seems to me by the people I choose to follow and the things I…

You Glow Differently When You’re Actually Happy

We’ve all heard people saying this, but maybe you’re like me and have rolled your eyes in some way at this bold statement. But let me tell you something. I think I just proved that these utterings are actually true. I’m not a morning person. Let’s just get that straight from the outset. I don’t…

Thoughts for Tuesday

Keeping busy

I’m sure nobody’s been missing me, but I’m going to go ahead and apologise anyway for going awol the past couple of weeks. As I mentioned before, we were moving the boat from Greece to Italy and had friends with us. We were enjoying our two weeks of downtime and exploring a little & then…

La Vie at Sea

Living on the water is a fun and interesting way of traveling. Getting paid to do it is even better. We have guests on board and go at full steam to make their onboard experience the best, and then when they leave we have time to unwind, enjoy the boat a little as our home…

Gratitude.

When you’re so wrapped up in the rat race and the happenings of your day to day life, it can be hard to step back and realise how lucky you are to have what you have. It can be the small things. Perhaps we take something for granted that maybe we shouldn’t. All of it…

From there to here

As you will know from my little bio, I am a chef on a private yacht, but before we dive deeper into where I currently am and all the fun I am up to at the moment, I think it’s important to share a little bit about my background and the sequence of events that’s…
