Hello, my name is Chris Bailey and Thousand Journeys is where I let the creative side of my self have a bit of fun. In other words, this website is an expressive outlet for my love of travel, art, photography and reflective thought.

If you want to know a bit more about me, I can tell you that I was born in England in the mid 1960s and grew up on the edge of London, half way between the city and the countryside. I had the honour of attending “The Worst School in England” as described by the News of the World at the time, but I didn’t let that hold me back for too long.

You could say that I am a “polymath” in that I have a number of interests and have built up knowledge and skills in a range of areas over the years.

My main career has been as a Health Professional working as an Occupational Therapist on the front line of Britain’s health service. I did that for around twenty years. I also continue to work privately as a Hypnotherapist and Success Coach. In addition I have a strong practical side and have spent a decade working either as an engineer or running my own decorating and design business.

Aside from my career paths, I also have long-standing interests in Science, Martial Arts and Meditation. The way that our minds work is a continuing subject of fascination for me; and the study and practice of hypnosis, psychology and counselling has profoundly changed the way I look at the world.

There are certain things that I enjoy in life, and nature, art, travel and photography are right up there for me. My desire to try and capture something of the spirit of a place has evolved into a passion for photography, video and writing. I find that these activities often act as a catalyst for encounters with people and places I would otherwise miss. Not only that, but they are an excellent way to remember our experiences. One of my favourite things is to borrow a motorbike, pack a camera and head off down the side roads to see what’s there.

I have been married to Jane for twenty years. Her career has been as a Paediatric Nurse working as a Midwife and Health Visitor. We don’t have children but we have a couple of nephews that keep us thoroughly entertained.

We originally moved from the mean streets of London, and headed south west to the space and peace of Somerset, buying an old wreck of a cottage that took us ten years to completely renovate. We then moved again to the beautiful coastal area of East Devon. Luckily Jane shares my love of travel and we left the UK at the start of 2014 to live for a while in Australia & Asia. We now live as digital nomads, Jane is writing a novel for young adults and I have the time and freedom to develop my websites.

We are not planning to return home just yet.
