Travel, Writing and Photography Blog

As I'm on an 11-week trip to Lisbon, Florence and Berlin, (31st May to 11 Aug 2016) I've decided to blog as a travel log on my journeys in Europe. I've been keeping a private journal every few days and I've decided now I'm going to blog it. I'll be posting updates on Facebook too but if you want to sign-up with your email address, then you'll get emailed when there's new entries.

In a kind of surreal epilogue at the end of the documentary (25 minutes) it starts again, this time in German...
