Following the blog that I wrote a few weeks ago, I actually applied for a project with Habitat for Humanity to improve the living conditions in Nepal. I’ve been accepted onto the team and will be leaving in March. Man, this project has been on my mind for over two years and I’ve really never got the money or time or guts to do it. Now it feels like this dream is about to come true, but I do need loads of help.

On a side note, you may already know I’m an active instagrammer. Well when I was down in London I was in Town Hall hotel twice; and very naturally I posted a few photos of the beautiful interior of the corner room. A few days ago I received an email from Town Hall, saying that they really like my work and invited me to stay with them in exchange for a few photos for their website. For a 5 star hotel in London?
So what have I been up to? Nothing much, really.
Freelancing and working on some of my own projects, also dreaming of Zahara everyday still. That place did something to my heart.
Anyway, I want to share with you one of my favourite quotes.
"You know, sometime all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it." ~Benjamin Mee
I took that twenty seconds of fearlessness and applied for something that I’ve wanted to do for years. I’m still waiting for the outcome, if God allows me I will do this and I will go.
