Well, after two (and a bit) long months, my vagabond days are over. I have my Macbook back in my possesion, a consistently solid roof over my head (some hostels are dodgy) and certainly won’t have to be waiting for anymore trains!
So what does this mean for you and A Dribble of Ink? Well, simply that things should be back to our regular broadcasting schedule!
I took every chance I could to blog over there, but it just wasn’t enough to satisfy me. Now that I’m back home I’ve got a load of content I’m just itching to put together. This includes reviews of Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan, The Ten Thousand by Paul Kearney (a less formal review of my re-read) and Blood Ties by Pamela Freeman. It was certainly a damn good 9 weeks of reading for me, so keep an eye out for those reviews over the next couple of weeks.
Those following me on Twitter, will have noticed that I’ve started a re-read of Robert Jordan’s The Eye of the World. With the upcoming release of the final volume in series, written by Brandon Sanderson, I figure it’s about time for me to catch up on the series. Having read the first several volumes, my plan is to re-read the first three or so, Wikipedia the next few and then pick up where I left off (Path of Daggers, I do believe). I won’t be doing this back to back, because I want to keep the regular reviews coming as well, but rather I’ll be fitting in Wheel of Time novels between other novels. It will be the first time I’ve re-read any of the novels since I first read them back in High School, should be quite an experience!
I’ve got copies of Richard Morgan’s The Steel Remains, Peter V. Brett’s The Painted/Warded Man and Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn hanging around, which will probably consist the next few novels I’ll be picking up. I’m generally a bit whimsical with what I read, however, so that could certainly change in the next few days!
If people are interested (leave a comment!), I’d certainly be happy to give everyone a little rundown of my journeys. In short I visited:
- Czech Republic
Here are a couple of my favourite photos from the trip:
It was certainly a great time in my life, and I’ll continue to try and post some photos as I touch them up.
It’s good to be back!
