• Return to Mostar

    The wind whips into a frenzy as our little band huddles against the elements during a war tour of Mostar.  It is certainly a far cry from the summer time madness back in August when, if you may recall, my friend Mike jumped off the famous bridge here.  The water is a lot higher and …

  • Waiting for test results

    After putting the full stop to your final exam in school and handing the paper over, there is little you can do to effect the outcome.  Maybe you can ask friends what they put for some sort of reassurance.  Perhaps you can go back to a text-book and confirm a particular answer.  There is little …

  • Sexual health checks in foreign countries

    Well it’s been a long time coming I guess.  I think the last time I had someone poking and prodding around my junk was back when I lived in Glasgow.  So that’s about four years ago then.  Since that time I’ve…erm…visited a lot of places.  I figure you shouldn’t mess around with stuff like this, …

  • Jajce

  • Mostar-bridge-jumping-Mike

    OK so once again it’s been a while dear readers.  Basically I’m not usually in a position to upload stuff due to some kind of internet restriction thing.  I will try not to be so tardy in future.  I think I’ve said this before.  Anyway, let me take you on a journey.  Back.  Way back …
