Surprisingly easy to Hungarian padded hands
March 16, 2012
Ether Books, who are publishing some of my ramblings, have made me their current featured writer. There’s an interview with me this week on their blog.
I was also recently interviewed by a journalist called Gábor Kiss for the Hungarian news and culture website Hir24. If you don’t know Magyar you can get it Google-translated, producing wonderful sentences like ‘Often I get lost, ask directions, and, surprisingly easy to Hungarian padded hands and feet can make myself understood.’ The contents of my rucksack are rendered as ‘Clothes, candles, knives, maps, sleeping bags and a laptop,’ which I think makes me sound pretty damned dangerous.
Finally, a couple of local press cuttings: from the Günzburger Zeitung in Burgau, Germany here, (a slightly puzzling photo I know — the couple beside my bed were my hosts Brigitte and Wolfram), and this one and the one below from Riedau, Austria, arranged by the wonderful David Witzeneder, also pictured.
