Walking around Gozo wasn’t on my list of things to do when I arrived.  I knew the island was small, but I didn’t realise quite how small it was until I did my Forrest Gump impression: I went for a walk and kept on walking. While I was in Gozo, I wanted to…

The Night I Tried Ayahuasca

A couple of weeks ago, I suddenly felt sick, and proceeded to throw up, not once but lots of times.  I was on my own in Manchester, feeling achy all over and cold.  I won’t labour the point. I’m sure you get the picture.  It wasn’t the best day I’ve ever…
