When I got home from the Photoshop course I found a packet in my mailbox. I recognised the handwriting immediately. It was from Schwester Pauline in Cambridge. She enclosed a note to say she had bought the book in a local charity shop, read it, liked it and decided to send to me. The postage cost more than the book!
It is called, ‘ To the Baltic with Bob: An Epic Misadventure’, and written by Griff Rhys Jones. Some of you may remember him as a kind of comedian a number of years ago on BBC TV. Now we know he earns a few ‘bob’ (joke!) writing about his travel adventures.
Actually I think she just sent the book so she could tell me about her cruise in the note! More about this above.
