A warm welcome to all visitors to the new site and I hope you enjoy the contents. Although very sparse at this point, over the weeks it will gather pace and volume. It will also include a Photo Gallery.
The main project is the ongoing blog entitled
– the story of the travels of a one-man OSCAR WILDE show around the world. The first post begins today (June 6th 2017) and will continue on every succeeding Tuesday into the foreseeable future.
If you miss a post, don’t worry – it will remain online. Admittedly you will have the unusual experience of reading a book backwards. Simply check below for which post you want and then type in the name in the search box on the upper right hand side of the screen.
The first reports will come from 1993 Prague and then 1995/2005 Arabia. Later posts will include Ireland, Western Europe, the Americas, Africa, Hong Kong, and India.
For anybody interested, be warned that you are in for the long haul – no less than 116 episodes to come.
Just look at the top of this page and click on ‘Cider with Bosie’.
[For anyone interested in other writings by Neil Titley, why not try googling ‘Under Ken Wood’ – his affectionate and funny account of the life and death of a London pub.]
