GLOBAL TIMELINE
Jo Clutton at age 63, Apr 2017

I'm Jo, artist, writer, traveller, wild west nut intrigued by science, and renaissance soul with a ridiculous sense of humour. I’ve miraculously recovered from thirty years of depression and anxiety and I'm now chronicling the rebuild of my polymath creativity on my blog, Creating My Odyssey. I'm reaching people with mental health issues and creatives in general to give encouragement, inspiration and hopefully some enjoyment. I’ve also been writing a humongous novel forever, on and off, particularly during young parenthood to help keep me sane! I’m principally looking for mentors for my novel but I also love contact with other creatives. I’m blogging about it on my site. www.joclutton.simplesite.com www.jo-b-creative.blogspot.co.uk www.kitty-le-roy.co.uk (wild west website)

Hi guys! Sorry for the absence between posts! We have been moving around and taking trips here and there so posting here has gone to the back burner! We left Dubrovnik after a week, and roadtripped up to Split, where we stayed for a month! It was so awesome to stroll the historical streets and visit Diocletian's palace. We climbed the bell tower and saw the city from a whole new perspective! We took a few days at the island Vis for my fiancée and i's 6 yr anniversary, and took a few more days sailing and island hopping all around for her birthday drinking local wine and eating delicious Croatian prosciutto and local cheeses. We then roadtripped up through two national parks- Krka waterfalls and Plitvice Lakes! These are must go! The most beautiful scenery ever! We are now in Pula but leaving today to head to Rovinj for 2 weeks! I'll try to post again in that time! Follow our blog for more up to date posts (links in previous posts) all for now!!

The last few months me and a friend have been looking into starting our own business. It's not as easy as I thought it was going to be, just try to get the website together has been a headache! But we will get there! At present were trying to find business networking events and how to get the website we want. Each day we're gaining knowledge, in the mean time weee planning our tour of Europe, which we're really looking forward to! We're also learning about wild camping and survival skills for Europe as well, camping and hostels, if anyone knows of any great places to camp or any hostels, leave me a message.

I've always loved old cars, thanks to my dad, and I'm specially fascinated by VW transporters or kombis, as we call them in South America. In 2015 when my grandpa got cancer, I had the idea to buy one and repair it together with my father and him. Basically I wanted to give my grandpa some project to keep his mind busy, with the hope that it would give him more strength. Unfortunately I didn't have the balls to buy it back then but, I finally decided to buy it one year after my grandpa passed away. Of course I won't be able to repair the kombi with my grandpa, but my father is still around and every weekend that I'm not travelling we spend tons of hours fixing stuff. It's also a great excuse to be away from my computer and visit new places frequently.

Hello! We had a wonderful time in Amsterdam! Got to visit and tour many wonderful historical places, walk along the red light district, and this denver man got to get his fix at some of the (in)famous coffee shops! 😎😎unfortunately, we had just a few days, but we will be back. We flew into Zagreb, capital of Croatia, in the middle of a storm. Changing plans and getting on a smaller one to continue our journey to Dubrovnik was not ideal, as the storm had gotten worse. Let's just say, I made piece with dying during our descent. We finally touched down, on a mountain top runway (which was intense) and almost kissed the ground getting off the plane. Our lovely host was waiting to take us to our apartment, which sits beautifully up high overlooking the city and marina. (See photo) our weather has not been ideal, but it looks to clear up during our second half of the week which is great!

Thanks so much and will check in from our next destination: Split, Croatia!!!

We have had a busy couple of weeks! We spent ten days in Madrid, eating ALL of the TAPAS AND TAPAS AND TAPAS there was! Ofcourse accompanied by a healthy dosing of delicious Spanish wines and Cavas. We went to a Real Madrid football match (which they won) and spent time searching for rooftop panoramic views of the city. We didn't get to party too much, as most of our mornings were booked with day trips and tours and what not, we still had our fair share of fun during the day and we're definitely the drunk tourists by midnight wandering the city. We spent a few days in Barcelona following Madrid, and had so much fun during Carnival! And ofcourse, enjoyed so much paella. So effing good. We are now in Amsterdam having a wonderful time wandering the old streets, visiting the Anne Frank house, a few "coffee shops," and some fine dining as well. We have much more to do before we leave for Croatia but I think we can handle it!

I fell in love with NY, it's like the whole world gathers there in a beautiful mix of cultures, races and everything. Also a good friend of mine was there at the same time working on an architecture studio and we spent all the free time that we had visiting the city. We also visited a lot of bars and clubs, NY nightlife is crazy and really fun. I would love to live there some day.

When the biggest client we had decided not to work with us anymore we started thinking of ways to reach more clients and keep our small software factory open. One day we decided it would be a great idea to visit New York and try to find some clients there. At that time we had a couple of small clients so we couldn't take a month off, so we decided to pay a coworking space to work in the morning and try to meet potencial clients in the afternoon. We went to every business networking we found and met really interesting people. We didn't think that we were going to actually find any clients on this trip but it was worth a try. In one of this networking meeting we met some young entrepreneurs that were trying to build an uber-like app for tutors and they had had a really bad experience with a developer before so we tried to convince them that we were the right fit for them. After three meetings they finally decided to hire our services to finish their app. As you can imagine we were quite happy and shocked. We still work with them and we have an excellent relationship.

Well our time in Lisbon has come to an end. It's sad, but we knew it was coming one day. We experienced so many new things here: All sorts of weather, the Market in Alfama, all of the wonderful food and wine, and just the culture and people. I couldn't have asked for a better spot to begin this adventure. But it does not end, this is just the beginning. As Lolly Daskal said, " the bad news is, nothing is permanent. The good news is, nothing is permanent." It's always good to explore, immerse, and move on. That is the way to grow as humans. Our next destination is Madrid, Spain, and I could not be more excited. All for now. Dont forget to read our blog at www.psletstravel.com and follow our twitter and Instagram @ps_letstravel Cheers!

About a year ago my father started dialysis. Dialysis is a medical treatment for Chronicle kidney disease patients who are at the final stage of the disease. The procedure is simple: the patient connects to a machine that cleans his blood and then returns it to the body free of toxins. Not a big deal. Except that it is. This dialysis sessions take about 4 hours and must be done 3 times a week or else the patient dies. So my father, was fired from his job because as a salesman he had to travel a lot and in our country dialysis is covered by our health program but in other countries the patient has to pay around 200-700 dollars. This amount for just one session! Imagine if you had to travel a week or two and have to carry that money just to pay your dialysis. Also, dialysis was really hard to coordinate so we came up to this platform: Connectus Medical. Connectus Medical is a medical platform where you can search dialysis centers, read other patients reviews, see pictures of the centers and information about them, make an appointment and pay in advance. This platform changed my life and I really wish it helps others to travel safely and without having to worry about anything but having fun!

Second and last day here. We got up at 6am for our balloon ride, Kadir took us to the meeting spot where they were waiting for us with coffee and chocolate cookies. Slowly but steady, the balloon got higher and higher and all around us other hot air balloons started doing the same. It already looked like a Windows wallpaper or a postcard, with the balloons and the snow and then the sun started to rise and i realized: "This is the best view i've had in my entire life". Really, words cannot describe it, even though we were freezing and i couldn't feel my feet, this was an amazing experience. We shared the ride with a couple from Argentina, i know Argentinians are everywhere, but come on, we were in Cappadocia, on the other side of the world, talk about coincidence. The balloon rider (that's a good title to have) landed the balloon perfectly and incredibly on the back of a pickup truck and we had a little toast right there to commemorate our small flight. We spent the rest of the morning on an open door museum and after lunch we said our goodbyes to Kadir and Patsy before making our way to the airport. Two days here really weren't enough, i loved it, there is a lot to see and do in Cappadocia and i would've stayed for two more days.

We began our journey in this beautiful land located at the heart of Turkey. We stayed at a very small hostel called Elif Star Cave Hostel, which, as the name suggests, is built upon actual caves. Our host/tour-guide, Kadir Teke, received us in the middle of a cold night with open arms, he helped us plan our activities for the next 2 days right there and then and even gave some medicine to one of the girls in our party who ended up missing all the fun because of a bad cold. We hoped we could go for a hot air balloon ride the next day but since the weather didn't allow it we rescheduled it for our last day here.. So on our first day we went to Pasabag, also known as the Valley of Monks and Kadir took us to a place he called the Valley of Imaginations, because all around us there where this amazing rock formations called "Fairy Chimneys" that resembled pretty much anything you mind could conjure up, like a rabbit's head or a sitting camel. We stopped for lunch and afterwards we headed to a place called Bazaar 54, Top Quality Handmade Turkish Carpets makers, it was really mesmerizing to see how these carpets are made and the insane amount of detail they have when you take into account that they are 100% hand made and most take at least a year to be done. Kadir then took us to one of the hundreds of subterranean "cities" that exist all around Cappadocia, it's hard to describe the magnitude of these things, it was endless, most of the turns had to be closed down so tourists wouldn't get lost. To finish the day off, Martin and i along with 2 girls that were staying at the hostel went to a dinner show with free beer. And thank god for the beer because the show was just terrible, but in a fun way.

After having a lot of problems throughout all the process making my thesis, I finally approved it. In that moment I was relieved, and extremely happy.

After four months applying for different jobs I finally find a good opportunity. I start working as service executive in AIVA, an investment company. It was a really enriching opportunity that made me grow professionally. After one year I decided to leave the job because I want to focus only in finishing my monography.

After a lot of time taking into consideration the idea I decided to study one semester abroad. I choose to do it in the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in United States. It was by far one of the best experience in my life. During the six months I have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, travel to wonderful places and grow personally

We started working as freelancer developers with my business partner since mid 2015, we had two or three clients and we were really comfortable with that situation. One of those clients was big and quite stable until it wasn't any more. In march, after finishing a job for him, he told us that there weren't more projects for us. We lost our biggest client but it turned out to be a great opportunity. Thanks to this we were forced to leave that confort zone and start a real company, a real software factory and start looking for more clients. This is how eagerworks.com was born.

He got cancer and by the end of 2015 he was really weak and tired of fighting. After spending christmas with him, me and my girlfriend travelled to Rio de Janeiro. A couple of days after new year's eve I dreamed about my grandpa, he was laying on the hospital bed sourrounded by all of my family and suddenly he was dead. In my dream I hugged him, he woke up and walk out of the hospital like nothing had happened. When the trip ended my mother picked us up from the airport, in the way home my mother told me he died a few days ago, the exact same night I had my dream. I told my girlfriend about the dream the morning after it happened so when my mother told us we were shocked. Unfortunatelly the real thing didn't share my dream ending.
