I’ve never even been to me.

I got redirected to Bucharest airport last week for about 90 minutes.

I was told it was nicer than Sofia, but I didn't get chance to leave the plane.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

A mate took a month to travel around the whole of the Ukraine a few years ago and he said it was amazing.

I'm thinking about doing a trip next year around the European capital cities I haven't seen, starting at Helsinki and going south. Something like that, anyway.

I’ve been to Tirana, via Greece. It’s got a fantastic mix of architecture and if you like soviet monuments to the worker, of which I’m a big fan, you’ll love it. The museums are great as is the mosque in the city centre.

Let’s hope the internet hasn’t reached these godforsaken outposts.

Anyone been to Trieste?
