I’ve only been home for 3 days and now I’ve got to be somewhere.

I really wasn’t expecting to return home with a ton of chores.

I was reminded of a time when I was invited to a rooftop bar in Stuttgart called, Sky Beach. It's for the poor sods who don't live anywhere near the ocean but want to feel sand on their feet, sit on a lounge/beach chair and drink.

I've got a 2.5 hr layover in Istanbul tomorrow. I wish I could leave the airport and have a snack.

My last night in town. Half of me wants to leave and half wants to stay. But I need winter and snow in the mountains. Also my cars are waiting for their winter tyres. Studded ones.

I should be able to listen to music or an audiobook when I go snorkeling. Why is this not possible yet in 2020?!

I think my next adventure this year is a trip to Saint Helena. It's a remote island in the middle of the South Atlantic. The island finally had its own airport built in 2016 and its first flight in Oct 2016 with only one flight to and fro a week from South Africa.

As I'm typing this, I think I'm ready to go tomorrow.

Jogged 3 miles. This is how I begin 2020 every day.. then eat a kilo of bacon. Shower, relax, read or listen to a book. Take more naps, more snacks, more tracks and a partridge in a pear tree.

I had a dream that I invented tearless onions. Then I googled it and they already exist. The sons of bitches are called "sunions". Now I'm determined to try these witchcraft onions if they really are as advertised.

Besides, would you trust an onion that won't make you cry? I wouldn't.

53 minutes til midnight here in Baa Atoll. In case I don't make it because I'm actually really sleepy,

Happy New Year to one and all!! πŸŽ‰πŸ₯‚πŸŽŠ


I also ate a lovely new year's eve dinner of grilled teriyaki tuna jaw. Lord Almighty it was delicious. I suggested it to the chef and he made it. I practically live here now. I dined in the dark so no photos.

I've read an entire German non-fiction trilogy in a day and 4 seconds. I think I've completely surpassed my "read more books" goal this year. Clock is about to reset tonight.

My favourite group of Italians are out having fun in the snow. But I'm having a grand 'ol me time. 😊

End the British monarchy. Seriously. They're a joke and made an even worse joke now. When Elizabeth croaks, that ought to be the end of it. Though that could be another decade. She's a fucking reptile.
