Some bugger stole it

This is some of the vast amount of jottings I have made on my various travels around this old world of ours. I.e. these are the ones that have made it from paper to disk - a very slow process indeed (it actually happens by osmosis).

Originally from: London(ish), England. Currently living in: Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Places visited so far: China, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, USA, Canada, Israel, France, The Netherlands, Germany, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Majorca, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia. Oh, and I've driven through Belgium a few times.

Languages spoken: English (flewent), Dutch (learning), French (forgetting), German (rapidly going), Chinese - Mandarin (basic).
