About @108

120 years old

As Joseph Conrad once said, I aspire to;

"by the power of the written word to make you hear, to make you feel... before all, to make you see . That — and no more, and it is everything. If I succeed, you shall find there according to your deserts: encouragement, consolation, fear, charm — all you demand — and, perhaps, also that glimpse of truth for which you have forgotten to ask."

I began this blog as a way of saving some space in an already overweight backpack.

I normally write in a book when I travel, a small device of unknown origin, made from pulped wood called 'paper' due to the ancient Eygyption's usage of papyrus for the same purpose. They really were quite popular in the days before those clever men who invented computers and word processing came along and made the world so much better.

But, I write a lot, and so I would end up having to buy a second bag on my travels just to hold them all. A blog seemed the natural way to go.

On this particular occasion I am landing in Mexico City D.F on June the 24th, and travelling down to Panama. That is my self imposed mission; The world's biggest city to the world's biggest canal...and back again, whilst seeing as much inbetween as possible.

I am an avid photographer so I will be uploading photos as much as I will be writing. Check out my photos at
