Well I guess this is the end of the road for the time being. Things didn't work out entirely in the way we had vaguely envisaged and hoped, and coupled with changes in the seasons, me and @kane.photo made a joint decision to bring the end of our journey forwards by 2 months. We travelled 4200 miles (6759 kilometres) in exactly 4 weeks. We saw 8 countries. I found places around Europe where I feel deeply at home and will return to soon. We met some really good people out there, two of which have taken a small piece of my heart somehow (@ben_joones @madleanseifert - I'll never forget the night around the fire, it was something very special to me).
The 4 weeks we spent on the road felt more like 6 months to me, in a good way. I've learned an inconceivable amount about myself in the short time out there and there are incredible positives to take away from this journey, but there are also the negatives which have just as useful lessons in them too. Currently I feel some resentment and some feelings of failure towards myself. A failing in a task I set myself, to prove to something only to myself and nobody else - this task isn't over, it's just a small bend in the road, but a blind bend nonetheless. I'm still living in and out of my car and will continue to because it just works and makes sense to me, albeit in the UK again for a little while, currently enjoying a couple of days recouperation at my Mum's house back in Yorkshire. I'll be using my time here up north to put all my energy into what I've realised is truly in my heart and has been since I was 6 years old, which is to make music and share that with the world. I'm not sure where this path will lead or in what form it will come to fruition, but I've never felt as driven as this in my life, and I know it's leading to something really good.
It's been a pleasure to share my life with you all this past month, and I'm thankful to everyone for your kind messages and comments of encouragement along the way - it helps to keep my faith along my path.
I'll see you all soon ❤️👌✌️
