Mais um ano juntos, outro obstรกculo a superar, mas mais fortes e mais apaixonados do que nunca. "You are my sunshine..." ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽธ @linaoliva โ™ฅ๏ธ

Welcome back Manchester. Not on my terms, but it is what it is

There are times where I felt like the last few months were passing by like this. That wasn't the plan, but they're the cards we're dealt so we play the hand. With just over 100 days until I reach the big 40 I've decided to take a little control back. Taking the Fluent In 3 Months Challenge is one way, as is the 30 for 30 Challenge by Dan Meredith. Small changes to the daily routine, new habits and a mindset shift will pay dividends further down the line.

Moving house during quarantine was surprisingly not much fun ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธโฃ โฃ Thankfully this view made it all worth it.

8 years ago today I was wearing PVC lederhosen, downing pints of warm ale and running up hills with a 20kg bale of hay.โฃ โฃ I have very few regrets in life but, at this exact moment, after running for 25 minutes up steep hills and having to down 5 pints of unknown ale (that's part of the race)... I was seriously considering my life choices.โฃ โฃ Let's also not forget the crippling hangover from the previous night, camping in a Yorkshire field through a humdinger of a thunderstorm.โฃ โฃ I can't wait to run another one with @linaoliva in the future ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™

A few little hiccups, but I'm happy with the progress. What say you? #ukulele #ukulelecover #ukulelelove #ukuleles #ukulelesongs #ukulelebrasil #ukuleleplayer #ukulelelife #ukulelemusic #ukulelelover #ukulelelessons #ukulelecovers #uke #ukelife #ukelove #challengeyourself #challengeaccepted #challenges #singingasong #singingvideo #singingcover #solos #soloshow #digitalnomads #digitalnomadslife #pearljam #pearljamcover #eddievedder

The last time I was quarantined for 3 months was back in 2013. It was self-isolation. I agreed to house-sit a farm in the jungle, knowing full well that my only company would be 2 dogs and a cat (and a gazillion bugs, insects and animals) Spending that time alone was a life-changing experience. Being alone with your thoughts is one thing. Being alone with your thoughts in the jungle is something completelyย different. The current experience, trapped inside 4 walls... not as relaxing. Go figureย ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Google Photos recently reminded me that 7 years ago I was having an altogether different jungle experience.โฃ โฃ In 2013 I was volunteering at El Castillo Butterfly Conservatory in Costa Rica. Situated on the side of a volcano, the majority of my day was acting as a tour guide to the multitude of visitors.โฃ โฃ That was until the rains came and washed away one of the bridges. Then it got real! Those rocks were rather heavy and all needed to be moved. Between our team we cleared hundreds of them.โฃ โฃ Needless to say I got pretty buff ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ช โฃ โฃ The right image was taken last year in a superb little spot in Chololo, Paraguay. The dream location for a spot of ukulele strumming.โฃ โฃ Older, wiser, happier and much more confident in myself.โฃ โฃ Did I suspect back in 2013 that I'd spend around 4 years wandering through Latin America? I already knew I'd found somewhere that resonated with my soul. โฃ โฃ Even though I couldn't understand a word anyone was saying, I felt the energy.โฃ โฃ I still feel it to this day.

A ukulele is the perfect instrument for travellers , backpackers and nomads

I started playing the guitar 20+ years ago, and now I canโ€™t imagine playing anything else. To tune the instrument, all you need is a free app, and millions of chords and tabs are available online for free with a simple Google search. Iโ€™ve dropped it more times than I can remember and itโ€™s still singing as pretty today as the day I bought it. If someone wants to try for the first time, itโ€™s small enough to be comfortable, loud enough to make a statement and the chords shapes are simple enough to make it accessible.

Ukulele is proving to be a much needed release from the stress of day to day life. Will I get a support slot on the next Eddie Vedder solo tour? Probably not. Am I loving the challenge of pushing myself to learn, record and publish new tunes? Hell yeah! #ukulele #ukulelecover #ukulelelove #ukuleles #ukulelesongs #ukulelebrasil #ukuleleplayer #ukulelelife #ukulelemusic #ukulelelover #ukulelelessons #ukulelecovers #uke #ukelife #ukelove #challengeyourself #challengeaccepted #challenges #singingasong #singingvideo #singingcover #solos #sรณlo #soloshow #digitalnomade #digitalnomad #digitalnomads #digitalnomadslife #digitalnomadlife #digitalnomadlifestyle

Before travelling to Brazil, all those many years ago, I had no idea of the sheer size, diversity and beauty hidden away around every corner. Waterfalls, beaches, desert, rainforest, ugly urban cities (#sorrynotsorry Sao Paulo) and super cute fishing villages... you could easily spend a few lifetimes and still be missing out on something. I pray to the stars the damage being done by their current leadership is reversible. Otherwise there won't be much natural beauty to marvel at.

Infinite thanks to @ukelikethepros for the 10 day challenge. My fingerpicking has come on leaps and bounds these last few days. Not sure if my performances are good enough to win the gold, but I'd say it's not bad for a $30 uke, nรฉ? To all other ukulele players out there, keep on picking! And if you need some lessons, Uke Like The Pros is a fantastic place to start. I also just wrote a blog post about playing my Uke on a 90 year old Paraguayan boat. Check the link in my bio! ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ #ukulele #ukulelecover #ukulelelove #ukuleles #ukulelesongs #ukulelebrasil #ukuleleplayer #ukulelelife #ukulelemusic #ukulelelover #ukulelelessons #ukulelecovers #uke #ukelife #ukelove #challengeyourself #challengeaccepted #challenges #ultp #fallinginlove #elvispresley #elvispresleyfans #elvisforever #elvistheking #canthelpfallinginlove #canthelpfallinginlovewithyou

A ukulele, a 90 year old boat and a lot of love

Norwegian Air cancelling our long-haul flight to Airmiles, but then giving mixed messages about whether theyโ€™ll fly in October 2020 (as shown on Skyscanner) or not until April 2021 (as per their press release). The lunatics outside on the streets of Rio listening to their lunatic President, ignoring skyrocketing numbers as they continue to party long into the night. To balance out the time spent writing, studying and strategising I decided to take the 10 Day Ukulele Fingerpicking Challenge from Uke Like The Pros. In return they taught us more phrases in Guarani, shared the history of the boat and their daily lives and passed around pictures of family and friends, beaming with pride.

By this point in the trip I was super excited to dive in.โฃ โฃ It gets ๐˜๐˜–๐˜› in Ibitipoca! So hot that you actually welcome the testicle-crushing cold of the streams.โฃ โฃ I was ever brave enough to swim over, climb up and dive off the waterfall... I'm a big boy now!
