A Kick Ass Blog

This is my travel blog, but since I’m home now, I’m thinking of expanding it to include short fiction too. Although I have hundreds of unpublished travel stories, I don’t like writing stuff up in retrospective much (however, if you’d like to pay me Mr Publisher, then sure I’ll do it). Besides, to think of these stories depresses me, sat here in Wales where my tan is rapidly fading and everybody with a chip on their shoulder flexing up against you because they’re hard, it’s weary. I haven’t quite gotten over being home yet. So that’s what I’ll do. It’s not a kick ass travel blog anymore, just a kick ass blog.

 

Note from the UK

You know how the film ‘The Hurt Locker’ is all about how war is a drug? That the ‘rush of battle is a potent and lethal addiction’?

Remember the scene at the end of the film that shows Jeremy Renner on leave walking through a supermarket bored, because there’s only one thing he knows he loves?

Picture me in Sainsbury’s and you have that exact scene.

There is a famous saying:

“No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.”

And it is true.

Now that I have been away, I realize it’s all I want to do.
