I haven’t really got lost.

Hello again and thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to visit my rather disorganised little site.

 

I am writing this in my Father’s home in Tandragee in Northern Ireland where I have been for just over a week now. Being even more of a Luddite than I am, my dear old Dad does not have any internet and this, coupled with a virtually non-existent mobile (cell) ‘phone signal, has rendered me virtually incommunicado . It is now 12th June 2018 and I have no idea when I will get a chance to post this as my usual practice in such situations is to find a convenient pub and avail myself of the wifi on offer but the pubs hereabouts (those that have not yet closed down) do not seem to have moved into the new millennium yet which is undoubtedly part of their attraction for me. Wifi is a rarity and so I really have no idea when this might actually find it’s way into the ether.

As and when I am able I shall be posting a journal / travelogue of what I have done and am doing which will be my first foray into real-time publishing. To this end I shall do as I did with my Lundy travelogue and backdate each entry to the day it refers to else I shall just become totally confused, well more confused that my usual default position. Speaking of my Lundy travelogue and associated trip to the West Country I shall be returning to that asap as I have only a couple more entries to go to complete it. For reasons I shall explain as I go along I may be at home for a while and shall have a little time on my hands so there really is no excuse for not keeping up.

If any of you wish to follow my latest little jaunt it begins on 1st June 2018 and I shall attempt to link the entries sequentially if I ever work out how to do it.

Stay tuned and spread the word.

Hello there and welcome to my blog which is the last attempt of a retiree and child of the 50's to overcome advanced technophobia and create a memoir of my rambles having had three commercial travel blog sites pulled from under me in just over a year. A learning curve like Everest! I am rapidly approaching a senior citizen bus pass and realistically I have more days independent travelling behind me than before so I intend to "do it while I still can" and am trying to cram in as much as I can now. Apart from travelling, I love playing music (guitar, vocals and a bit of percussion) as the profile pic suggests and sport, although my active participation is now restricted to the very occasional game of pool. I read voraciously, probably a legacy from my dear late Mother who was a librarian and encouraged me towards books from an early age. I'll read just about anything although I do have a particular interest in military history of all periods. I live alone in fairly central London where I have been for over 30 years since leaving Northern Ireland which was the place of my birth, youth and early manhood. Partially by necessity although more by love of the art I adore cooking and I can and do read recipe books and watch food programmes on TV / online all day. Nothing fancy and none of your nouvelle cuisine nonsense, just hopefully tasty, proper food. To my knowledge, I have not poisoned anyone yet! No doubt other little personal facts about me will emerge during the course of my writings here so stay tuned if you are at all interested.
