Giuseppe Bono: 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.


You know what they say about Italian drivers! Deserts are safe!! At least he was leaving the place!!
