This little gem has unfortunately been collecting dust on my shelf for a decade since I found it by accident on a sunny morning in San Francisco. There was a time when I bought a lot of books and I shiver at the thought of all those books I’ve carried across the Atlantic ocean in excess baggage.
Road trip across the American Southwest
"We drove along Route 6, Route 66 and Route 666. If there was a Route 6666, we must have missed that turn."
A journey through Iran
"I woke up freezing on a Persian rug with aching back. Behind a corner I saw the damned rooster that kept me awake during many hours."
Roaming in Valletta
"I passed the statue of Jean de Valette, the 49th Grand Master who laid the foundation stone to Valletta in 1566, to gaze at the golden interior of St. John’s Co-Cathedral, where he is buried in the crypt."
The urban maze of Tangier
"There are exciting things waiting around every corner and my bucket list is long, but the Medina has a mindset of its own regarding time and space."
"The soundtrack of the day was Radioactivity by Kraftwerk, as we rolled into Chernobyl this morning."
Sessions in Seville
"I end my journey in front of the tomb of Columbus, located inside the world’s largest Gothic cathedral."
