Two years later...
The PhD thesis in Art History is coming along strongly, with one year to go. I have started lecturing and tutoring in Art Theory, and find this to be a wonderful occupation. I have been travelling since then, most recently on three months of Fieldwork across Europe. (Cairo, Budapest, Berlin, London, Paris, Madrid, and Barcelona). No blog was made for "Fieldwork 2008". Instead I wrote lengthy correspondences (postcards and paper letters), filled sketchbooks (which I did not attempt during the Grand Tour of 2005-6), and took elaborate research notes for academic purposes.
I started drawing visual records of these trips following "Central Australia 2007", a two-week journey resulting in a very chunky and colourful diary. "Christmas in Cairo 2007" attempted a similar record, but was more a unique family experience than the explorations of a solo traveller.
The immediate future for my travels is uncertain, though it is possible I will return to Europe later this year. If not, then the next great expedition will be a return to Egypt: the deepest deserts of North Africa in 2010, a challenging long-distance campaign to the Gelf Kabir.
