My blog is eclectic, covering several countries I have lived and worked in as well as books, music and food. Here are some popular examples, by which I mean pages that regularly get hits from Google searches, though the searcher may have been looking for something completely different.
I'd love to have comments on what you think of the pages you read. Leave them at the bottom of the page.
Georgia at War
The most popular posts by a long way were unintentionally popular. I was working in Georgia during the August 2008 invasion of Georgia by the Russians. My various blog friends linked to my blog and the word spread. Before we evacuated I was getting thousands of hits a day on my blog, instead of the usual 50 or so. It was an exciting time but I hope I don't have to repeat it.
Although greens are healthy and in Greece there are plenty more than spinach, to my daughter they are still "limp green vegetables". Read more, and see the photos. I have written more about food and drink and restaurants here. And about life in Greece between 2003 and 2005 here.
This review of the novel by Ismail Kadare seems always to be in demand. Don't miss the post about Kadare himself. For more reviews of the book go here. More book reviews by me are here. Sometimes I write about music and films too.
Polish shop Oxford
I'm glad to be able to point visitors to this shop just round the corner from where I live in Oxford. Of course it's just one of the interesting sights in and around Cowley Road, which is again just one part of Oxford that I write about.
Eastern Europe mentality
I'm reluctant to use this phrase but others aren't, so they manage to track down the one time I wrote about it intentionally. But I see a few other "mentalities" crept in here and here (Greek) and here (British and Australian). And I guess you can see my own mentality problem in my grumbles about Life in Britain.
Gave me life: Gilmore Girls
For those of you who haven't discovered this fast talking intelligent women's soap opera yet. As well as pure entertainment, it is also useful for learning grammar, GSCE revision breaks, and Christmas presents
