If you fancy picking up a few secondhand books or perhaps donating a few of your own then you'll find the book shop in the building in-between the IP Boutique Hotel and the Itaewon Global Village Centre. Head east out of Itaewon station and if you reach High Street Market then you've gone too far. The shop is on the third floor of the Ansung Tower building.

Goodbye 2011

And so we come to the end of another year. As I write this it is already 2012 in Korea, but back in good old Blighty we are stuck firmly in the past waiting for the last few hours of 2011 to waste away into nothingness and for the brand new year to take us into the future.

It has been a rather odd twelve months filled with much happiness, much strangeness and many different jobs. I've bounced around from performer to translator to writer to director and it has been fun to find myself in all sorts of new places doing jobs that I never managed I would be doing just a year ago.

2012 will bring many more challenges and plenty of uncertainty, but I'm looking forward to stretching myself into many different shapes and seeing whether I bend or break.

Thanks to all who have stopped by here to stare at photos or read my rumblings, you are all very welcome and I thank you for taking the time to visit.

Here's to endings and beginnings, and to the hope that 2012 will bring many exciting adventures to all of us.

Goodbye 2011, hello future...
