A Week in the Glorious Blue Mountains!

by - 7:21 PM

Wow. I have been spending nearly a week up in the quiet mountain town of Katoomba where the quiet majesty of the Blue Mountains never fails to take a hold of something within me every time I hike in its deep valleys and behold its mountainous glories. I thank God for this amazing, amazing time of peace and solitude up here. I am truly savoring every moment: the tranquillity of the mornings waking up at sunrise and having a simple breakfast of hot chocolate and toast with Nutella and a topping of fresh banana slices! (A bit indulgent for breakfast, I know. But ah what the heck, I’m on holiday aren’t I?)

And not to forget, the unforgettably quiet walks to the Blue Mountains, hiking through the dense valley and up the winding trails surrounded by thick forestry, passing by breathtaking waterfalls and cascades, taking in the sight of Jurassic Park-like panoramas with jagged cliff sides and towering rocks with the distant blue-hued mountains beyond!

Sending all my love,

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. I’m a traveling musician and music educator from Melbourne living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a movement of peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
