Singapore to Istanbul - not a bad wee trip really. The breadth of Asia with a backpack (and lately a sheesha...don't do that!), a passport, and a little bit of cash. I never thought it would be so easy.

Turkey has been magnificent, and it looks like I'll be back here working this year. Having done almost none of the sights, that may well be a good chance to catch the things I've missed, but no doubt I'll pass them by again. There's too many good people to meet here - what's a traveller to do??

Tomorrow I fly out of Istanbul, to Rome. Asia will be behind me; Europe and dear friends await. We have a couple of days in Rome, then a week at the apartment in Florence. Several beery days in World Cup Germany are interspersed between my leaving Italy, and my arriving in London, and that is going to be a hell of a good time.
So my solo wanderings have come to an end, and with it this travelogues. No doubt that will come as a blessed relief to most of you, but if anyone is still reading, than thanks, and I hope you've enjoyed it all. I'll keep putting my photos up, and probably do an Italy/Germany round-up later, so look out. :-)

I read a wonderful quote the other day: "A tourist doesn't know where he's been. A traveller has no idea where he is going."

I kinda like that. It seems to fit pretty well.

Thanks you guys, take care, and everyone keep in touch please! I may not be writing much more for a while, but I love to hear from all of you.

All my love, and big hugs.
