The time really does fly by when you’re working remotely and on the road 24/7. Since the last update, I spent a month in total for Hong Kong, sandwiched either side of two weeks in Mainland China – a big tick for me as it’s always been my number one country to visit.
After a quick stop to see the fire-prompted haze in Singapore, I spent six weeks in Australia (two in Sydney, three in a camper van all the way up to Cairns, and one in Melbourne.
I’m now in New Zealand for the next two months (one month in the north island using Auckland as a base of operations and one in the South going all LOTR on it).
After that I’m returning to Sydney for the rest of the year until heading back to the UK for two months at Christmas. 2014 holds some pretty special plans, but more on that soon.
Another three months fly by. Since my last ‘I’m alive’ update, I’ve spent more time in Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and now I’m in Hong Kong / China for the months of May / June. Not much else to report – an update about South East Asia on No Film Left is coming soon.
Life goes incredibly quick. The last update on this site was Christmas day 2012. Since then I’ve left work full time, started to travel the world instead and been to Thailand and Burma. The adventure which is my life is only beginning, so don’t expect many updates on here at all. Musings on travelling can be found over at www.nofilmleft.com.
Thanks for all the support, but don’t worry about me. I’m alive – I’m just getting away from time wastes like Twitter and casual blogging to focus on experiencing life.
Firstly, Merry Christmas. I know I already wished everyone it earlier in the week, but it makes sense to spread the goodwill cheer again. Anyway, more excitingly and on topic, my client Musion appeared in the Christmas Sunday Times edition.
In the Culture a two page story discussed the potential of holographic projection and included a photo I took during the demo. This is incredible and while there’s no byline, to appear in a national newspaper, even through a client’s work, is very exciting.
Anyway, here’s to 2013.
I can hear you say it already, “where the hell have you been Marco?” OK, maybe not. If anyone’s wondered why I haven’t updated this site as much as I used to, it’s because I’ve been pouring all my energy into my new travel site revealed at the start of December.
It’s going really well. I’m happy with the progress I’ve made, both with the support friends and family have given me, as well as the slow, but steady increases in traffic from Twitter, Facebook and directly.
I’m sticking to the tone I think is best – longer form features with advice and narrative thrown together, as well as traditional content. I’m trying my very hardest to avoid ‘top ten things to see in xxx’ articles because frankly, there are enough of those and they’re lazy writing.
Anyway, if this is all news to you, feel free to visit No Film Left and let me know your thoughts.
Oh, and of course, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2013. I’ll have very exciting news to share soon.
