  1. Thanks Fiona , love to hear about Ireland, i spent 3 weeks there in 1988 as part of the kiwis rite of passage , the big OE { overseas expedition } magical place Ireland. people came up to me in pubs. invited me into their homes and i didn’t have to stick my thumb out for long to get a ride, Connemara was beautiful to hitchhike through, usually teaming up with a German for company and invariably ending up slaking our thirst in an irish pub.

  3. Thank you Fiona. I was in carnaby street in 1970. Bumped into the actor Jack Hawkins in carnaby street. We had a beer at a local pub. So many people asked

    for his signature and because I was sitting with him they asked for mine as well. Thanks for the memories.

    Hi Henry, I flew from Durban to Lisbon, then to Italy and after that to Geneva. I’ve already recounted these trips. Then I flew from Geneva to London, as I described in my previous piece 🙂 I’m so glad you’re enjoying my stories, taken from my autobiography. 🙂

    Hi again, Henry, I only remember lucky packets, which contained a few chalky sweets and a charm of sorts, cheap tat, bbut we loved them at school!
