Search for Nessie in Loch Ness, Scotland. ✓

1093941_10151535261990636_622569606_oI can tell you one thing I know for certain in this life: There are few things more disappointing than getting to Loch Ness and not seeing a single monster. Not one single monster! I had my camera ready and everything… sigh.

Just kidding. I’m not stupid. We all knew this was a mission doomed to failure. I’m not five years old anymore, I’ve grown up. I’m mature now. Anyone with half a brain could tell you that there is no such thing as monsters!

No, my friends, the creature in Loch Ness is no monster, he is a gentle giant, and I’m almost ashamed of my use of the word ‘Monster’. It’s clearly a beautiful water horse, or a gigantic Plesiosaur which managed to escape the inevitable doom and extinction of the dinosaurs… who knows, perhaps it’s even a magical Liopleurodon?

I don’t know; I’m not a scientist.

What I do know is that my plans to hire a small one man submarine and begin a month long search through the icy depths of this mammoth 22 mile puddle were put on hold after I realised our Scotland road trip was on a very tight schedule and I’d spent the last of my money on one of those little ‘Nessie’ Beanie Babies at the gift shop. You cannot believe my disappointment when I found I could no longer afford to purchase a deep submergence vehicle.

Now that I think about it, that’s probably why it never gets caught, people just spend all their Nessie hunting funds on souvenirs. Oh Nessie, you clever bastard, well played sir.

This site is intended as a dumping ground for my interests and thoughts, but above all it's a here to record my progress on my ever expanding list of life goals. I want to impove myself, to learn new things, to see the world and to experience everything I possibly can. It's a simple goal which has led me half way around the world and given me some amazing memories to keep, stories to tell and friends to cherish. I try to enjoy my life as much as anyone can and I record these memories and thoughts for my own purposes, but the hope is to inspire.
