10 years ago I was fortunate enough to be able to take a 2-month break
from "my day job" at the time and embark on an epic trip around Europe...
My travelling companion was the person who little did I realise then
would one day become my wife,
and we were travelling with the Busabout network.
I wrote a collection of articles en route and sent them back home
to the Northern Cross newspaper via small net cafes all around Europe...
These are those scribbles from the humble pen
of a wannabe European correspondent...

The first thing to get used to was the Czech currency – “Krone”. £40 was about 1700 Krone! It took me a while to get my head around this but I missed using the distinctive coins and notes once we moved on again.
