Pigging out in Pangers

UNITED KINGDOM | Mon, 23 Mar 2009 | By keith_austin | Views [1270] | Comments [1]

Yes, it’s me again, and so soon! Feeling a bit guilty at my lack of communication recently but it’s amazing the things you can fill a day with, still feel   that you’ve done nothing, and yet be exhausted at the end of it. While in the UK recently ... Read more >

How many times have you heard that people, when they arrive at a new destination, want to “experience” the place like the locals do? They want to eat where the locals eat, drink where the locals drink ... it’s an obsession, and a ridiculous one. ... Read more >

Who Let The Doges Out?

ITALY | Wed, 28 Jan 2009 | By keith_austin | Views [1163] | Comments [1]

The good burghers of Venice have got their work cut out. Having rid themselves of the Doges many years ago (though being a doge wasn't all it was cracked up to be, as we found out on a tour of the Doges' Palace) they are now battling the dogs of Venice.... Read more >

ITALY | Thu, 22 Jan 2009 | By keith_austin | Views [870]

I will need a holiday after this. Ever since my other half, the fragrant Popsi Bubblehead, was awarded an Arts Council writing grant which included a studio apartment in the centre of Paris for six months (I know, poor me), everything has been leading ... Read more >
