Taking a break

After 20-odd postcards from around the world – some of them very odd – it’s time for us to put our globetrotting on pause. I don’t know if this will be temporary or permanent. That probably depends on your views on reincarnation. But I do hope we can set off again soon. We haven’t yet had a chance to enjoy together the Tortuous Mad Road of Sutherland, friendly bandits in Crete, the rip-off Blue Grotto, a near-drowning experience in the central reservation of a Warsaw street and several more.

They say that everyone has a novel in them, but I’m pretty sure I can prove them wrong. It certainly hasn’t shown up on any x-rays yet. But I’ll have a go at writing one. So I’ll have to hang up my travelling boots for the time being.

I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for your fabulous support over the years, and my gratitude for your feedback. It has been one of my few lifelines to the non-horizontal world, and it never ceases to cheer me up when an email comes flooding in. I am leaving these pages open, so please feel free to write in.

I have always found that when one door closes, another one shuts. Until now. My wife Brenda and my good friend Dave have been weaving their magic on a YouTube version of these blogs. Just click the link below if you haven’t already seen them. It’s also a chance to hear a voice which is assisted by technology, but is still recognisably my own. Still, you can’t win them all.
