'I returned to the Holiday Inn, where they have a swimming pool and air-conditioned rooms, to consider the paradox of a nation that has given so much to those who preach the glories of rugged individualism from the security of countless corporate sinecures, and so little to that diminishing band of yesterday's refugees who still practice it, day by day, in a tough, rootless and sometimes witless style that most of us have long since been weaned away from.'

Between the surf and snowboard trips to Europe I spent 137 days on the road. 103 nights in the van, 7 in an apartment, 17 in hotels, 2 in mountain huts and 2 on overnight ferries, as well as 5 at mum and dad’s, covering 7,050 miles in total and passing through France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Portugal.

I’d recommend it to anyone

Matt’s choir, Musarc, performed in the courtyard at the Barbican last Saturday - both outstanding and a perfect complement to one another.
