I’m a happy little VegemiteonTour…

Hey y’all let’s get this started shall we! This trip of mine has already been full of exciting adventure, complete freedom, ridiculous amounts of learning and just meeting super special people everywhere I have been! But we are not going to start from the start, not only because so much has already happened, but because everyday is literally a new day for me, no plans and no expectations…

My first post starts in Leeds where I have found a home over the past couple of months at a peculiarly perfect place called “The Art Hostel”. This is where one day I met an incredibly bad painter who I was lucky enough to help out, I’m going to call her “Oops” after a famous horse, was it fate or was it luck, who am I to tell. Anyway after a while we got talking, it wasn’t long before I was completely intrigued by Oops, her ins and outs, her story. Oops told me as we shared a delicious beverage all about Plato’s Cave Theory…

Basically in a few words it talks about how the cavemen or women who are using their eyes can see the cave wall in front of them, and this is all they know. If there is a fire behind the cavemen or women they can see the flickers of light which produces a great shadow on the cave wall. However those cavemen or women who only look at the cave wall don’t really know what is behind them, so therefore they have to use their imaginations, what they know about the cave wall and create an idea in their heads to understand what is going on behind them…

In this theory we can understand society, people understand what they see, hear, feel and their experiences. However as we know from history things CHANGE and their has only been a small amount of people (cavemen/women) who have had the ability to turn around and see the fire and directly creating new understandings…

For me this walk of the UK and Europe will hopefully open my eyes, I mean it already has in so many ways, but I mean really CHANGE me really help me turn around and see that beautiful, warm and magical fire!

So that’s my first post, that’s the story of Oops and I and this is my first steps away from Leeds into the unknown.

Ps. This first little bit of my post are going to be quite scarce, as I am not going to be staying with families, hostels or couch surfers but going more off grid. So I will see you when I see you…
