Mojojack's Travels


This blog starts with a six-month Europe adventure in 2018. I kick it off in China with the trans-siberian railway to St Petersburg for April travelling with my photographer friend Jenny. I’ll then be joined by my partner in Amsterdam for five more months’ travel before we return to Aotearoa New Zealand.

Half the trip with my partner will follow in the trail of chef Rick Stein‘s ‘From Venice to Istanbul’ with us visiting many of the cafes and restaurants that he featured in his BBC TV series. I’ve spent hours colour coding his recipe book, watching repeats of the TV series and jotting notes on which restaurants to find. While he names many of them, some of them are just described vaguely as “in the hills behind …” which I guess will lend a mystique to the effort of finding them.

I backpacked in Europe as a young New Zealander on my OE in the 1980s, though I’d lived in London for several years as a teenager. I briefly visited again a few years ago on a trip with my community choir The Glamaphones where we sang in a rainbow choir festival in Dublin. In that three-week holiday, Barcelona caught my eye and heart and I’m happy that I can return there and also see more of Spain this time around. My photo of the spotted red dancing shoes is from Barcelona.

I’ll post photos, stories and tips on the way; please feel free to comment or share them.
