Joins us as he makes his new home in Melbourne after moving from Italy - well
Sicily in fact.
A well travelled
person here are some of his memories from recent travels.
Some situations have
left a mark in my memory more than others: drinking red wine while watching
Mount Etna Volcano erupting, doing a gig (playing in a band) for drunken
tourists on a rocking mini cruise boat off the coast in Palermo, searching for
Caravaggio in Malta, riding a motorbike on the Tunisian island of Jerba,
sleeping under the stars in the Moroccan Sahara in Merzouga, swimming in
Tangier, driving through the Pais Vasco, musing in the Tate Gallery in London,
trekking in the Lake District in England, not jumping off the cliffs in the Aran
Islands in Ireland, pub crawling in Southside Dublin, cycling through a national
park outside Copenhagen, enjoying a hammam in Istanbul, sharing corn bread and
honey with Kalashi people in tribal NWFP Pakistan, listening to a dingo howling
along to the sound of a piano somewhere in SA on the road to Alice Springs.
