Just a quick post to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Although 2012 hasn’t been a good year for me personally, I have had some great trips abroad and had some great experiences, as well as spending time with some great people who I’ve met on my travels. I would like to send a special Xmas thanks to my friends in Greece, especially Alex and David Ashcroft, Bo Stille, David Shimwell, Rosemary and David Bellamy as well as Nicholas and Adriana Shum who have tolerated me, and offered me their fabulous hospitality this year. My trips this year would not have been anywhere near as interesting (or successful) without some excellent travel companions so all the best to Carl Corbidge, Ilias Strachinis, Giorgos Pastrikos, Gertjan Verspui and Liam Russell!
As a final post of 2012, here is a short report from my latest trip here
