This newsletter-style forum will tap into the zeitgeist of Covid reflecting on (and possibly partially compensating for) our blocked ambitions to travel. It will feature text extracts from (of course) Jack Kerouac and more recent travellers, around the world cyclists, desert explorers and so on, with links to music, images and poetry. Occasionally I will refer to my own travel experience. It will be delivered by email and postings to a page of my website with opportunities for members to contribute by email reply or via a special Facebook Group (Facebook membership is not essential and is just an additional means of communicating for those happy to use this social medium). I will post the newsletter by email every Wednesday.
