"...the wandering pen writes freely"
I can't remember who said that, but in some cases too freely.
I was told by a friend to check out your postings on the BBC forums that don't appear on google. What a farce! Don't drag folk, rhyme or our forum into the depths of - dare I say it – borderline xenophobia.
Whoever said your travellers tales are egotistical is right. You feature as the subject of most of your verse. The days of the 18th century travel writer have past my friend, we can experience these things for ourselves now. No longer is the 'literary guide' a prerequisite for prose.
I don't know who your web-hosting friends are, but I think you've given them enough free plugs.
