GBF: How I missed my flight with a 3 hour layover

GBF: How I missed my flight with a 3 hour layover

THE GOOD I emerged from my meditation retreat feeling relaxed, calm, and focused. Before I began the retreat I had no idea where my skirt would take me next.

Crayfish Fun Day!

I had been saying for a while I wanted to go out on a crayfish boat before I leave Lancelin. When I met Chris, GM of a crayfish exporting company, he said he could hook me up with one of the local fishermen who would be happy to take me and a few of my […]
