My name is Carol Ann and I am a grandmother in my 70’s. English by birth, I have had the good fortune to live and work in different parts of the world. For the last 23 years, I have lived in the heart of rural Aberdeenshire, Scotland; indulging my passions for travel, photography and writing.
For years, I have promised myself I would write a book, which would cover my adventures to discover 12 locations around the world that can be defined as ‘energy pumping stations’. These are places where the energy of the Earth flows up and down vertically; from the ‘arteries’ deep underground which manifest as lava systems, cave systems, tunnels and layers of geology; to the ‘veins’ on the Earth’s surface where it runs through sacred places, mountains, valleys, rocks, rivers, streams, seas and the crystals and minerals within them; and the ethers above where our weather systems are manifest. For each location I started with a simple geographical clue, which helped me arrive in the right area; and then followed clues on the ground to get to the place I was looking for. Along the way I have had many adventures and wonderful experiences; and now, the time feels right to share these.
So far, I’ve managed to write one travel book, called ‘Dances with Dragons in Mongolia’, which can either be bought direct from this website, or from Amazon. Whilst I have the content for several more, I decided 2020 was the year I would put everything up on a website, so it was freely available to other like-minded souls.
So, this website documents some of my adventures along the way; the observations made; the delightful and sometimes challenging experiences; and my evolving thoughts and ideas. I make no apologies for this personal perspective, or view, because it is simply that. It is of course possible to be totally wrong, but that’s OK too, because it’s been more about the journey, rather than any end goal, or definitive answer.
Some of the content is still being written, so please bear with me if a topic of personal interest to you is not there yet. It will be coming soon. Meanwhile, if you’d like to sign up to receive the newsletter, you will be among the first to know when new content has been posted.
Thank you for joining me on this adventure….
