OUCH… week 9 and my gums are EXPLODING!..
Hi, and welcome to week 9 of my journey around the UK, Europe and the World.
This week was a little bit different.
Instead of the happy array of pretty pictures and pleasant surroundings, I flew out to Budapest to get some treatment for my aching teeth. I was in search of a Toothful Nirvana, but got 5 days of pain. None the less, I have begun my journey to have my mouth transformed and hopefully my smile will return.
You might be thinking, why did I go all the way to Hungary for the treatment. Very simple, cost, PLUS, the standard of Dentistry in Hungary is second to none.
So, I’ve completed my first treatment, I had 5 implants, 3 root canals, one sinus lift and a tooth from the front row removed. The next stage is to come back in June of next year to have the teeth, crowns, and bridges fitted, hopefully returning my face back to a smiling one..
(Watch this space)..
BOOM!… here is a quick video I shot in Budapest from the top of the Budapest Eye. This is a fairly new landmark in Budapest and arrived only recently in March of 2017..
P.S Forgive the poor quality, my face was aching and my mind was elsewhere..
After a few days of treatment, I could see how this relates to people who struggle with things every day. Progress, or trying to progress does not come easy to most people as we are constantly programmed to stay the same and “fit in”. Each step toward a goal can be very painful (like the dentist), but as we take each painful step, the pain lessens as we progress..
Here’s my very philosophical video, taken from my hotel room at the Danubius Hotel Arena
So, what did I learn this week. Simple, progress is pain. Each painful step is another step nearer to your goal. This week represented anew beginning for my teeth, but each and every week, I will take a new and painful step toward another goal. This is the key to success in anything.
KEY: You can’t move forward in life, business or relationships if you just stay the same. It takes courage to branch out, get noticed and introduce change into your life. Be brave, don’t fear the pain, don’t fear failure.. it’s only temporary. Success is around the corner if you are brave enough to “go for it”.
Until next time…
I wish you peace and happiness. If you got value from this post, please share and comment. Thanks

Wow, last week (week 7) was pretty much a “write off” week. My car decided to give up the ghost and needed a new water pump. so I was pretty much grounded in my hotel in Skegness, Lincolnshire for three days while waiting for the car to get fixed..
The Journey so Far
Soooo, I headed down from Lincolnshire to Porlock in Somerset to begin Week 8.
Porlock is a beautiful village in the heart of Somerset, 5 miles west of Minehead. The area has links with several Romantic poets, R. D. Blackmore, the author of Lorna Doone, being one of them and it is very popular with visitors.
The Village of Porlock has has a feel of “stepping back in time” and some of the cottages are many hundreds of years old. The village itself has links to Saxon times and is now a part of the Exmoor national park.
I stayed at Glen Lodge in Porlock which I can thoroughly recommend. The views were amazing (see below)
I also visited Porlock Weir while I was here. (See Below)
You may think it is expensive to keep on travelling. This is true as you have accommodation , food and fuel costs (for the car), etc, etc, however it’s all relative. If you have a mortgage or you are renting, the costs can be quite high.
Currently my travel costs are twice as much as my mortgage and normal living costs. But when I was location dependent, I could only travel every now and again. The trick is to earn more than you spend (of course)..
Running an online business can be both fun and very profitable if you do it right. It can also give you a great chance to see more of your Country and the World.
Will I keep travelling forever?. Probably not. But while its doable and fun, I’m going to keep going.
Here are some more pictures from this weeks travels..
I also spent some time is Minehead. This is a seaside resort in Somerset, about 5 miles from Porlock.

Well, that’s it for this week.
I am currently back in Chichester staying a few days at my cousin’s house before I’m off to Budapest on Sunday, November the 5th to get my teeth sorted.
Do leave a comment below and share the post, that would be very much appreciated. Thanks
