Remember to travel closer to home.....
It has been just over a week since I have returned from the most amazing trip to Iceland. I can unequivocally say, if Iceland isn't on your bucket list it needs to be. The beauty, starkness and isolation is something to behold. For me Iceland represents so much in my transition from working in a job I love to chasing my passion.
At the moment work on Iceland includes preparing the Iceland Collection, negotiating an exhibition space, pulling together an exhibition and so much more. Plus this week we released the first of our Iceland Collection and our first Open Edition - The Ice Dragon from the Land of Fire and Ice.
But as I chase my dreams across the globe, this weekend I had a great reminder that while travelling the globe is exciting, it is also important to travel far closer to home and do it like a tourist.
To get to Iceland and back, including more than circumnavigating the island, I travelled over 41,534 kilometres (just under 26,000 miles). A huge effort that effectively took two days each way just to get there, let alone the nearly 3600 km I did driving around Iceland.
This weekend I travelled to Sydney, the city I grew up in and with my wife and business partner Kim we did a nine hour shoot. Kim is currently studying photography with the view of joining me in the business. For Kim's studies she needs to pull together a portfolio and on Saturday we were aiming to complete two of those in our travels.
There is so much going on at the moment but I will tell you more soon, lets just enjoy the beauty of Sydney and Vivid.
