A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world

Coming back from Melbourne after a great weekend of eating and making pierogi with friends, I’m writing this while I sit on a VLine bus, less glam than the train, but train’s will be back operating from tomorrow.

Catching up with friends.. lots of interesting conversations, this time about the ‘regional’ living and the location. When I talk to people from Melbourne and tell a story of my last 12 years of travels, I always always hear a similar consensus “after all this you ended up in Ballarat??!”..

Location is important, but not so much anymore. A great photographer Rob Imhoff, whose advertising career took him all over the world once told me ‘It doesn’t really matter where you live, you can create things anywhere you are. The rest of the world is just a flight away.’

When you feel as though the odds are against you, you know you’re on the right track. If other people don’t understand your idea, great. If someone says it’s stupid, that’s even better.

So what’s your take on regional vs city living?
