I’ve been an exceedingly lax blogger lately. That’s cause I’ve been travelling, you see. And taking notes. But I’ve not transferred the notes to any electronic medium yet. A few resolutions: I shall get:
- out of the 20th century
- rid of pen and paper, and
- a portable, small, lightweight laptop

Since April, I’ve been a busy traveller, investigating the few remaining countries in Eastern Europe I hadn’t seen, all fascinating in their own way. I’ve visited:
- Macedonia – the country still grieves the loss of their young Eurovision Song Contest hero Tose Proeski.
- Kosovo – that fledgling nation who, I’m sure, would like to have Bill Clinton as their leader – or even god.
- Latvia – stayed with Diga at Homestay in Riga. Nice place.
- Moldova – with fab archaeological finds and cool monasteries in Orheiul Vechi and lots of life in chic Chisinau.
- Transdniestr – back in the USSR.
- Norway – Trondheim, city of the viking king – again.
- Denmark – twice: Copenhagen for business and Legoland for pleasure. Cat’s pleasure, that is. I’m a little tired of those building blocks, genious toys though they are.
Articles will follow – just as soon as I find myself that little laptop. And before the kids and I take off for our first explorations of mysterious Wales next Monday. Keep y’all posted.
