Apologies for the delay in posting this. I was intending to keep to a once-a-week posting schedule, but I had a short period of my weekends being occupied, and I generally write over the weekend as I often get home late.

"The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land." - G.K. Chesterton
Welcome to whatever this will become.
