Morning all,
My favourite book of all time is BLUE HIGHWAYS by WILLIAM LEAST HEAT MOON, about his travels in an old van across America on the roads marked in blue on the old maps, hence the title.
It satisfies the wanderlust in me and I've read it 3 times with a Rand Mcnally USA map in front of me retracing every mile (sad), I've even driven some of it.
Filmwise- any road film , I hate fims that are fimed in the dark like a lot of fims used to be at one time, don't like war fims, or westerns, or historical pageants, (don't leave much does it), one of my favourite films is END OF THE AFFAIR filmed partly in Brighton, and I was security on the pier at the time, and watched them making it, good story, good acting, good author, Graham Greene.
TVwise I like AUF WEIDERSEN and most documenteries, any GOOD comedy series and anything to do with travel I even like a few cookery shows.
