Lisa Head Shot

Hi! Welcome to Uncaged Artbird, a forum for my passions and escapades. I’m a blogger and poet nomadically exploring the world. Living with Fibromyalgia, my life has been challenging at times but lifestyle changes have helped me to maintain good health. With my blog I hope to promote greater awareness of this chronic condition and encourage everyone to fulfil their travel dreams.

➡️ Friday 14th June 2019: A Father’s Day Gift. It’s Father’s Day on Sunday. Sadly my dad passed away in February after a series of strokes so I would like to do something nice in his honour. I am being sponsored to do a week-long Social Media detox. If I last the week, a donation will be made on behalf of my dad to the Stroke Association. Be back next week lovelies! *pic is a throwback to 1989, me with my dad ❤️
