This is a brief interlude post because I am off the UK tomorrow for 12 days. All the way from Brisbane, Australia through Brunei, Dubai to London, England. You probably know I am English but have spent the last 9 years in New Zealand and Australia. I am going ‘home' for a friends wedding, and also to see my family and old friends.
I am also taking the opportunity to share literary travelling with you. I have some scheduled posts on Literary Oxford (my spiritual home) and Literary London, and I will also be posting mini-audios, pictures and video on places and people you might be interested in.
I'd love to know what YOU want to know about literary Oxford and London – so please leave a comment here or on one of the upcoming blog posts.
I also have some speaking events, live and online over the next few months you might be interested in. I'd love to connect with any of the readers of my blog – we share such a fundamental interest!
