Thanks Wild Goose for your charming comment. (Now don’t get ahead of yourself though BarryScott – I know it’s rare for people to hit it off on this forum but Mr Goose and I have only just met.)
Anyway, no I have never thought of a career in travel writing, although I am sure it would be great. I am not sure that I would have the skills though in reality – much as I like to rattle ideas off on the keyboard when I get a chance.
It’s been a while, too, since I saw The Accidental Tourist. Saw it on a plane if I remember correctly. I seem to recall smiling fondly to myself as I caressed my glass of wine while watching it. Probably rather sad, really. But I enjoyed it on the whole. Except for the bits that drifted off into the story of his relationships – a bit like Up in the Air – could have done with less of that.
