I had this feeling that without travel my life is empty, just passing the days, passing my months away, but really--this gives me the chance to WORK EVERY DAY ON MY BOOK

I had this feeling that without travel my life is empty, just passing the days, passing my months away, but really--this gives me the chance to WORK EVERY DAY ON MY BOOK. Travel Diary 2014, Travel Diary 2015, Travel Diary 2016, Confessions of a Brussels Diplomat! This work needs to be done. *** Uneventful journey to work, as always. What excitement I used to get getting the BUS to work from Wandsworth Road. Always sexy bus stop girls. I am starting to crave my own nest in London again, not --, surely that would be madness.
I was thinking I would go to Brussels BEFORE the end of August week off, but then I thought no, I will wait for end of August. Now I think no, I will stay in London end of August, and wait until combined Brussels/Vienna trip in December. Now I think even in December I can only afford Brussels only. This is how well my mind set has changed. So excited at prospect of being able to reduce my credit card debt down to £--K at least by end of year. Still sounds a huge amount! But it would mean a hell of a lot less in monthly interest charges compared to now, and hell of a lot lower monthly repayments compared to now.
Fill the gap left by not travelling with working on my Travel Diaries, 2014, 2015, 2016. A lot of work to do there. The only writing that interests me is the journal of a solitary man's path through life, and so it flows when I am not solitary my writing must fall silent until I am solitary again, then I can resume where I left off. This is a vital fallow year. To write up all the journeys I have been on since Twelfth Night 2014. Three books of Travel Diaries to write and publish.
What a beautiful lovely slowly raining April evening it was tonight! Not cold, bit clammy, muggy, and slow gentle constant drizzle. Soho weather. Fu Manchu weather. From the old days.
