About TheTravellingMan


Hi, I'm something of an irregular writer and I travel a lot - I have wanderlust and have for a very long time. I've met many fabulous (and a few not so fabulous) people on my travels and it's given me a wonderful appreciation of the human condition. I hope you might find that in my writing. I'm not a natural writer and I am learning for there is much to learn.

I write because..... (choose a reason), that's easier than me explaining why. I hope you like my stories, sometimes they are true, authentic and unembellished. Sometimes partly true in honour of a time, place and sometimes a person.

The rest are simple flights of fancy that arrived as a spark in the most unforeseen of places....

Bye for now.

Topic: Do you get as much sex as you would like?
Posted: 10 Jan 2019 01:01

No.. in the same way that I like wine and good food, it is possible to be a glutton. The problem is time, days spent in bed like some kind of randy Borgia are great and still happen, other things have to happen too.

Topic: Brexit - How did we get here? An essay
Posted: 09 Jan 2019 14:10

To be honest, all of this contributed.

Incidentally, during the negotiations for the 2010 Coalition - it was the Lib Dems that held Cameron to an EU Referendum.

However, the very act of joining in 1973 was deeply flawed.

The Civil Service warned Ted Heath that he was not joining a Common Market but a federalist project designed to usurp nations and their democracies.

Ted Heath and his cabinet did not tell the public and that information was put under a 30 year rule.

Since then, it has been 'More Europe' when the British public were told it's just a trade arrangement.

And Margaret Thatcher's Bruges Speech basically told the UK and the EEC (then) this hard fact, the UK faced a choice, it is not a trade agreement anymore. The UK has to decide, create a different kind of Europe, stop and get off, or buckle up and enjoy the ride.

In the 30 years since, the UK has been trying to get the EU to reform, liberalise, and stop the federalist excesses. In that 30 years, not one UK political party was honest in its intentions to Europe. Major signed us up to the ERM as a precursor to the Euro, he destroyed his party over Maastricht. Blair said he would be tough, he gave away the rebate. Brown was meant to hold a referendum over Lisbon, he didn't, and signed it without one (he had no mandate either).

The rest is window dressing.

Topic: Brexit looks like it's going 'Tits Up', so what now?
Posted: 09 Jan 2019 14:01

We are heading for one of three outcomes.

1. No Deal - this will happen by default on 29th March 2019.

Either through the Withdrawal Agreement not becoming law or the expiry date of Article 50.

The Withdrawal Act is primary legislation; it cannot be repealed without an Act of Parliament. The only person that can table the primary legislation needed is the PM.

2. An extension of Article 50.

All 28 of the Council of Ministers have to approve this. 1 veto, it cannot be extended. Even then, the Withdrawal Act has to be amended by an Act of Parliament - you got it as primary legislation tabled by the PM. Additionally, the EU Commission will not want this, Junker's term is up in June.

3. A managed 'No Deal'

Almost completely missed in the press - the EU did table its proposals for 'No Deal'. This is a 1 year transition period on the basics, haulage, aviation, medicines, services. It's not bad but you would never know because the UK Press are also wilful in their incompetence.

Today, all that has happened is a motion can be tabled to vote on a vote for any 'Plan B' alternatives within three days of the Withdrawal Agreement vote. This is to stop the clock running down and 'No Deal' by default. These motions cannot be forced to happen, they are not binding. The Speaker is also exercising unprecedented procedures now as well.

There are 20 Remain Tory MPs basically refusing to implement their manifesto and siding with the Opposition. Some of these rock stars are the same genii that campaigned for the UK to join the Euro.


The Withdrawal Agreement will not pass.

There is no Plan B, how can you vote on something that does not exist? No-one would dare defy the will of the people, there is no time for a Bill for a Second Referendum, the EEA option or EFTA option.

The Opposition cannot even raise a 'motion of no-confidence' in the government let alone a formal vote.

Basically, the UK got the government it deserved and they have shown themselves to be utterly useless, tribal and if they say 'National Interest' one more time.... when it is their interest all the time.

A plague on all their houses. For decades they've been able to blame the EU for their problems, in many ways, they precipitated this crisis. They are not capable of leading a sovereign country.

Recommended Read En France - Anne-Pierre, Chloe or Elodie

I should have kept it to myself. Walking on fallen blossom leaves, the tree-lined boulevard carried the scent of hope. In a brief interlude of sunlight, we basked in the first warmth of spring. Fingers entwined, her expression pensive and doleful, we stopped for a moment under a weathered statue; it must have looked glorious once. I used to enjoy the silences, now it felt awkward. Tugging...

Recommended Read Through the Glass, into the Mirror

You can get a lot done in ten years, and for us, we strived for mediocrity.  It was not as if we gave up on life, we were only thirty; we just liked to flirt with how familiarity bred contempt. Straddling me, the bed groaned, and the dismay of that familiarity dampened the sizzle of excitement.  In the gloom of the morning, her body cast a half-light silhouette.  "Put the light on?" ...

Recommended Read The Virgin Slave

“I just wanted to kiss you.”  I paused, feeling uncertain and vulnerable, “But I was scared if I did, you might hit me.” Gazing at her prone beside me, she looked out in a thousand yard stare. Dismissively as a snort of air could be, her eyes narrowed to focus, “I probably would have, too.” I did not know much about her but that look I understood well.  A sultry stare full of...

I paid the price she demanded.  When the extrovert gave way to the introvert, I became her slave, and as my mistress, I knew her intimately.  Rising as a faint pang, excitement laced with anxiety, its urgency grew quickly.  Crumbling by the hour, I could not endure the trajectory of this sepia-tinted relationship.  The unremarkable tale of vanilla boy meets vanilla girl and they will not...

Mr. Twenty-Eight

Twenty-eight times he watched this, his wife getting it seven ways ‘til Sunday.  She adored Mr. Twenty-eight, tightly coupled, bodies frantic, and the air filled with anguished cries of ecstasy. Mr. Twenty-Eight had verve, athleticism, a wanger that would make a horse feel inadequate.  He had a wondrous naïveté for a good story too. Mr. Twenty-Eight brought his girlfriend, a partner...

Out in the Sticks

“He’s just a tortured writer!” That tone of sarcasm demanded a response.  Looking up, he silently mouthed the words to his younger sister. ‘Fuck off.’ The shock on her face amused him. “Mum!” The floor bounced as her elephant feet left the caravan.  He stared vacantly at the feint-lined page of his foolscap book.  Vanilla, luxurious, expensive, his cheap thoughts would sully it. ...

Editor's Pick The Petite Girl from the Big City

“You alright?” Loud and direct, it carried over the wail of the storm. Sea spray lashed her face and the relentless wind whipped at her hair.  Wiping the brine from her eyes, vacantly, she stared at the black malevolent waves.  Mesmerised by their sickening lurches, they topped out in a froth of grey and disappeared. “Colette, please!” Clutching at the arms of her Guernsey, she turned...

It fell in slow motion, the last drop of salty sweat onto her writhing torso.  Announcing my climax, I withdrew.  Her fingers replaced my girth, a distraction as I felt his strong grip.  Staring into my eyes, my desperate need for relief amused her.  His firm grasp stroked my shaft and provoked the savage need from my loins.  Softly squeezing my balls, I buckled in orgasm.  Amidst the sounds...

A rhythm, syncopated, the dark shades of bass and hard rhythm felt tribal.  The teeming mass of bodies moved as one, lost in each other, all were strangers in this private moment.  Adrenaline, alcohol, and lust fused into this perfect cocktail.  Their hands chased against each other, a gossamer caress along her slight waist, and those meandering fingertips raised a soft gasp.  Pressed...

Hi Darling...

“Yes darling, he’s here.  He let me handcuff him to our bed.” Casting her eyes over his prostrate body, she giggled, “Uh huh, he’s ready.” Pressing the phone to her ear, his erection twitched in her grasp.  With a deft flick of her wrist, his body writhed with a rumbling groan.  Relishing the control, the zephyr breeze from the open french doors caressed her naked body.  She caught...
