A wandering bird's-eye overview of most things even vaguely related to travel, and an opportunity for writers, artists and photographers to contribute the historical, the hysterical, the quirky and quixotic... anything with heart.

UK 1972
`Road' by Nick Drake -

Excruciatingly shy, sensitive and introverted, with only 3-studio albums to his name. Drake has stopped performing live by this time, with the brilliant but unknown singer-songwriter overdosing in 1974 at age 26

    I love his voice. Another gone too soon.

      Yeah, me to Annie.
      I find all his stuff so atmospheric, although inherently sad.
      & so little recognition while he was alive.
      (`Pink Moon' is definitely one of my favourite albums.)
