Whimsical poems, prose and short stories about the domestic and international travel adventures of a gay man over two decades. Not just a travel guide, not a memoir, and certainly no competition for Fodor, Baedecker or Lonely Planet, this book is more like a time capsule of what was, and what is not likely to return very soon again. Chock full of illustrations, the author's photos and drawings in historically accurate black and white on practically every page. Sit back, relax and unwind....you're going on a journey with a fellow traveller!
Since we first landed in France, every step of our journey has reminded us that we were in an old country. Every thing we saw spoke of the past, of an antiquity without limit; everywhere our eyes rested on the handiwork of those who had been dead for ages, and we were in the midst of customs which they had bequeathed to their descendants.
