stinkyman… (2 carriages : 1 bitch part 2)

... so where was I? OK. Oradea. Stunning place. I step a long half meter down to the platform - Ms Shittypants has waited til last to leave as well. We carefully avoid eye contact as we hit the concrete: thankfully she is quickly lost in the crowded station. The station is tiny!

The sudden jump in temperature from my previous home is hard to take. Antarctic-induced pale skin is starting to burn red and I'm still … Continue reading …lucky?

Well this trip is certainly a very different journey so far ... what is this 'work' thing that I'm expected to … Continue reading …roundtripper
