Holding Hands with the Ring of Fire

Zero to Hero (Blogging 101) Day Sixteen: Make a Prompt Personal
Today’s assignment: publish a post based on your own, personalized take on today’s Daily Prompt – Ring of Fire.
Do you love hot and spicy foods or do you avoid them for fear of what tomorrow might bring?

I do like a good meal, even more so if the necessary accompaniment is hot sauce. Watch me wipe away the beads of sweat because I’ve doused my quesadilla in tabasco, mixed sliced fresh chilli with my Pho, dipped my tofu dumplings in Sriracha and asked for extra jalapeno’s on my cheeseburger. You can have your bland sandwich while I work my way up the Scoville scale. I want the burn, need it activating my insides and clearing my sinus.

Side note: For those living in the UK, check out Fistful of Spicehttp://www.fistfulofspice.co.uk/ I’m partial to the Chipotle but the Caribbean Hot Sauce has the added fabulousness of mango.

Inspire Yourself.

It’s true. Once you travel, you don’t want to stop. For those who prefer creature comforts and predictability of routine, I dare you to one day take a trip to another place and be swallowed whole by its beauty, be touched by the warmth of its people and live a life so different to the one you’re wedded to.

Big thanks to Squeaky Robot for such a lush pictorial of Quest festival in Vietnam. You’ve just forced me to add another place on my wander-list and inspired me to share some memories from Barcelona. http://thesqueakyrobot.com/2014/04/27/quest/

Zero to Hero (Blogging 101) – Day Nine

Inspire Yourself.
Today’s Assignment: write a post inspired by your About page or widget.

I’m one of the most indecisive people I know. I’m that person who goes into a cafe and is sure of what to order until I re-read the menu again and then spend another five minutes annoying the waiter while I change my mind. Similarly it takes me a long time to write a journal entry. I get distracted easily then come back to what I’ve been writing and dislike everything on the page. One day, I hope to be able to churn out a blog post in about 15 minutes and be happy with it wholeheartedly. Until then, I’ll be behind on this zerotohero challenge but that’s ok. I will get better at it.
