I: I am Veronica Feeling

18th July, 2013

Ekero, Sweden

Dear You,

Perhaps an introduction:  I’m nothing special.  I am Veronica Feeling, a middle-aged woman of middle intelligence, middle allure, middle shoe size, but since my creation roughly 3 months ago it has dawned on me that life can be a cruel, sticky affair and I already know that I am in danger of becoming the bruised peach at the bottom of the bowl.  My chosen way out of this jam is the open road and the unknown encounters it coyly promises.  If you would permit it I would like to share the adventure…10,000 miles, 22 countries, 1 motorbike, 1 woman, myriad dreams…to para-phrase the great Charlene, I’ll go to paradise and I’ll also go to me.

After some persuasion Jude Noon has allowed me to hi-jack her email list – this is only fair as I am, she tells me, a figment of her imagination.  I promise not to bombard you with minutiae but if for any reason you would like to un-subscribe then please write to me c/o Poste Restante, Istanbul*.

Kind regards and warm wishes,


*just my little joke…reply with “unsubscribe” as the title.
