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.

An ode to Mr Leunig...

   a slaughterman's son, 

   friend of ducks and goats.

   oh me, oh my, just what to be...

   an explorer pyjama-clad?

   a hill, a rock, a lonely flower, 

   a crusading pencil or a pointed spear,

   to pierce the bleak. 

   this silly man, a shining star
