The Anonymous Widower

Travelling Very Light

On my trip today, I’m travelling as light as I can, as obviously I’ve got to carry everything.

I shall be away for five nights, but I can of course buy more stuff on the move.

Clothes consist of three pairs of pants, a vest, a shirt and a pair of socks.

Tissues for my nose.

Hairbrush and toothbrush.

EatNakd bars.

My drugs in film cansters

Gluten-free menu cards in Hungarian and Czech.


Memo Book for notes.

Sudokus to solve.


A voucher to buy the Times on Saturday

My Samsung Tab 2

Itinerary and tickets

Chargers for my Samsung, phone and camera. Why won’t one suffice for all?

There are some things I’m not taking.

Shoes or boots, as I’m wearing those.

Toothpaste and deodorant.  These will be bought at Gatwick after security, so I avoid the farce with plastic bags.

The Last Quartet

I saw this film last night and it was thoroughly enjoyable and a very good study of the tensions and relationships of a group of talented people.

In some ways, I found it a bit allegorical, as the tensions between the major players in Metier, were rather similar at times, although we had simpler relationships.

Of course, philistine that I am, I didn’t recognise any of the music in the film. This probably means that you don’t have to be a music lover to enjoy the film.

I saw it in the excellent Barbican Cinema and afterwards had a drink looking out of the window, at the front door of Cromwell Tower.  That was a bit surreal and I did wonder how my life would have mapped out, if C and myself had kept the flat there, which we probably would have done, if Metier had been sold earlier.

Do we just go round in circles in our lives?

Doing The Outrun From London City Airport

Today, I’m off to Budapest at lunchtime on my trip away by air and back by train.

As I went across the cable-car yesterday by the City Airport, I wondered if I could start from there.  The only two interesting places are Stockholm and Faro.

All the others aren’t far enough away.
