    It’s been a crazy few weeks and things aren’t settling yet. This is what we got up to on a weekend break in Croatia

  • Phobias, Anxieties and Broken Things

    It’s an overcast day in Skradin, the charming Croatian town that serves the picture-perfect Krka national park. It is here that I will be shipping guests to and from, hopefully with more regularity now that the season appears to be picking up and the bad weather has finally got the message. More or less. I …

    New Year, New Website, New Me. Looking for Stu Continues!

    Well now, this is all very unusual, isn’t it? Some might say absurd? What on earth am I doing writing this again? It has been well over a year since I last committed anything to this digital vellum, but I assure you, dearest readers, that Looking for Stu is still alive and kicking. Kind of. …

  • Faffing about, a Visit Home and the Next Chapter

    I’ve decided to pull my finger out and write something instead of indulging in my seemingly endless talent of procrastination. What it genuinely boils down to is the fact that so much seems to have gone on in these last few months it begins to overwhelm, and so I swap the laptop glare and crumb-filled …

  • Hannibal Lector shaving my balls

    It’s been a while dear readers.  You must forgive my tardiness, but I have always sought quality over quantity with my travel updates.  As such (and as I’ve not been doing much traveling), not a great deal of adventure or excitement worthy of note has occurred (nothing I could print anyway), and so I have been …

  • Procrastinating.

    Having a lot of time on your hands while you plan your next move/world domination can have an interesting effect on oneself.  You can either use this period for personal development; learning new things, getting fit, contemplating your navel.  Or you can sit about on your arse playing online chess, watching back to back episodes of …

  • Birthdays, good friends and arseholes

    Well it’s been a while folks.  Back in my home from home.  My only home to be honest.  And what a lovely place it is.  Made new friends, saw some old ones, and enjoyed a spirited return to these shores; including a rather wonderful birthday.  Yes I recently turned the ripe old age of 35. …

  • Pastures old

    After leading 18 pub crawls in a row, spending three months in Sofia (a large percentage of that either sick, drunk or both) and burning the candle at both ends, I was looking for a way out.  Salvation came in the form of an email from a friend.  A conversation similar to the following exchange …

  • The romance of the bus station

    Punctuality was always a real stickler for my dad.  I remember being hounded through my coco-pop breakfast and not allowed to read the cartoon pages of the Sunday Post as we were ‘late’ for church.  Of course we’d always be the first to arrive, an eon before anyone else, which proved a real bone of …

  • Returning to old haunts

    It’s funny how life works.  How things can come full circle.  I’m standing at the Lucko toll booth on the outskirts of Zagreb.  Exactly the same toll booth I stood at back in May, before embarking on a whirlwind summer of excess.  So – am I going back to Zadar, you muse?  He can’t be! …
