living vicariously

This evening I sat and indulged myself in the finer things of life. A chinese take-away and 3 hours of Palin. Have had 'Full Circle' on my shelf for quite a while before getting it down and it is gripping. His mix of absolutely English, comic and explorer make him an impeccable ambassador for Blighty.
Of course, watching him only serves to lengthen my 'must go to' list which is doomed never to be completed.
Current musts are;

* Japan in spring bloom
* A tour of west coast America
* Trans-Siberian railway
* The remaining countries in Europe I haven't yet visited
* St Petersburg
* Egypt

By the end of the year I will have been to 15 European countries and added another continent to the list.

...which reminds me, I have innoculations at 8:30 tomorrow morning for Latvia. MUSTN'T forget.
