Road Music: Songs to be happy to (Last time, First lines)

Its the final few moments before I head home after a year+ of travel. I've been humming these songs in my head, more specifically the opening lines as they capture my current homeward bound mood.

"It was all a dream..."

I feel like I've lived a dream, the more I speak with others the more I've realised its human nature to build things up in your head. It might seem like a movie trope/travel cliche but it truly was a great year. During the course of my trip I learnt the gravity of being in the moment and that living is already the dream.

A Punk Rock title, a reference to Istanbul and my current catchphrase.
All the layers on one shirt.
I spotted this T-Shirt at an Istanbul Mens store. Not sure if they knew it was Punk Band (New Found Glory) merch, I think they were just stocking it because of the famed Turkish Video Game character "Bald Bull" of NES Classic 'Mike Tyson's Punch Out'.

A Zeitgeist photoshoot
On my last week in Europe, I found a photoshoot promo in the London NikeTown as part of the #MakeitCount campaign gearing up for their 2012 Olympics. I posed for a photo and was asked to write up a slogan for motivation. LL Cool J's iconic intro had been stuck in my head all week

"Don't call it a comeback..."

I started this blog during my 'Yes-Man year' leading up to my year of travel. All the great results from my trip I believe came as a result of the energy I adopted and grew into back home in Sydney. I like to think of it as "taking awesomeness on the road", I'm simply returning it to where it began - At home and within.
