This is the story of my travels overseas. I left the country in January 1997 and returned just in time for new years 1998. In that time I traveled through SE Asia and drove a motorbike around Australia. It happend like this....
I took extra special care with my stereo.
Every cable I wrapped into a neat coil and taped. The components I covered in plastic bubble wrap and placed in a box sealed and coated with packing tape.
I had spent a lot of time listening to that stereo, and while doing so I had thought a lot of thoughts.
About three months into my trip, I called home.
I spoke to my Mum and she told me she had been to my house. Apparently I had spent a rather a lot of time thinking thoughts, but not much time checking the kitchen... I had left a bowl of soup in the microwave.
Apparently the soup had developed a pleasant and well read manner, although it did have a tendency to fidget!
I was in rather a distracted state of mind back then. I was changing everything.
I was off to Gatwick airport with a one way ticket to Bangkok.
Well, someone told me it would be rather nice...
