Everybody was beautiful and everybody was sexy and nobody was economical.” And that sums up the appeal of travel to me. Sitting drinking in London today and feeling so morbidly bored, so hard to even make the drink go down me, I was yearning to be sitting in a bar in Brussels, Vienna, Berlin or Munich instead.
