During the 90's I spent a lot of time 'roughing it' and wandering Europe. I'd walk between France, Switzerland and Germany sleeping under the stars and making money where I could. If you've ever read Narcissus and Goldmund by Hesse you'll get the idea. I starting writing a book called the 'Blaggers Guid To The World'. I never finished it.

I seemed to have spent a large proportion of my Internet ration on Google+ these last couple of days. Not in the negative time-suck kind of way.. In the WOW.. could this be the next big thing? kind of way. I hope it is. It's long overdue. Although I have a feeling it's going to take a little time for people to see the potential.
