“Come as you are. Leave as you want to be”.

Gary Paul Waterworth-Owen

“After living in, working and/or visiting over 50 countries, I would rather wake up in the desert than the best suite at the Ritz. To me, the ‘promised’ land is a desert wilderness - it is a necessity of the human soul. It is a place to explore the last frontier - the one between your ears. I admit, deserts are not for everyone - one person’s wilderness is another’s amusement park. However, I hasten to add that no one should go through life without at least once experiencing the solitude that the desert provides. Dependent solely, on what you and your camels carry, everyday is a journey of self discovery. In the desert – SHIFT happens”.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.� Mark Twain
