Travel’s c-word

Over time, I’ve gotten to be a bit of a cranky old lady when it comes to travelling. I know this and I’m the first to admit it. People can drive me utterly bonkers. The following, in no particular order, drive me absolutely insane; Using the word ‘done’ or ‘did’, followed by a place name. […]

Over the last ten days, I’ve been travelling at a rate of knots. I finished up my training through Eastern and Central Europe, and started work again in more familiar territory.

Absinthe and old lace

So apparently Prague is in Eastern Europe. Well, maybe geographically, but you wouldn’t know it just by walking around the place. When I wrote my first list of all the places that I wanted to go in Europe (it would have taken me eight months) Prague didn’t even make the cut. I sure am glad […]
