Formerly 'Random Outbursts of a Frustrated Nomad' - an outlet for personal verbiage, mostly concerning the necessity of travel (with an emphasis on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage), music, culture, liberty and the absurd.

Pompeii, 1942. A geek-tourist scientist, intrepid explorer and faithful Indian sidekick make good their expedition to discover the lost phallus of Booozsh.
I am a journalist. I used to spend far too much time daydreaming of travel, until the day arrived that I could bear the itch no longer. Henceforth I packed my bags and, with the spirit of the Camino de Santiago still romancing my soul, embarked on a six-months trip across South America. Since early May '07 I've been back in good olde London town with more travel-writing experience than you can shake a chorizo at. I am a human, locked into a never-ending dream of self-fulfillment. I aspire.
