Retired, after sixty years of travelling the world, Britmil pilot.
All these locations, except three, are places that I have landed, and recorded, in my log books.
Variations of cuisine are always the most instantly recognisable and most enjoyable aspects of changes of location when travelling.
I will never forget my first flight overseas (as a passenger) by BOAC Sunderland from Southampton Water to Dar es salaam, it took five days in 1949.
The urge to travel must be in the genes as so many in my family were sailors and travellers, including my brother who thinks he is hot on my heals on this web site. Actually he is catching up fast....!
In the RAF, I probably had the best job in the world.
