Took the wrong boat out of #Bombay, ended up sailing through an industrial zone surrounded by birds. Returned without any drama, but massive amounts of #securitytheatre in town makes up for it. Five-foot high barriers that can be moved by hand or vaulted over, inconvenient for everyone but terrorists: there’s no way out short of jumping into the sea. #india

One year, #GeorgeMichael was that twat from #Wham! and the next, he was suddenly, well George Michael. #Faith just seemed to come out of nowhere, and in the year of #MichaelJackson’s #Bad, held its own for airplay and visibility. Most other albums would have sunk without exposure. Packed with fantastic musicians like #HughBurns and glistening with crystal-clear production, it still sounds impeccable, and rewards being turned-up. I went to school with two of his cousins, and while I barely knew them, he was said to be an upstanding dude, a total #mensch, a generous geezer. Our loss. #RIPGeorgeMichael

Something SO bad, it’s good. One picture cannot do it justice, but I present to you the Museum Of Health in #sayajigardenbaroda which is ball-bustingly apocalyptic in the scale of its neglect and horror. Zoom in on this one at your own risk. #india #horror #apocalypse #wtf

No kidding, even when trying to make a sale, pretty much everyone is constantly engaged is freeing the remaining catch from their nets. #fishermen #india #pondy

As I said, pretty much everyone is constantly engaged is freeing the remaining catch from their nets. #fishermen #india #pondy

“Let me tell you what #mansplaining really is.”

It’s not over yet, but what a brilliant year of theatre from @rjcrookshank’s solo #wtftheplay and #SarahKane’s brutal #cleansed to the amazing #Unreachable. Funniest plays this year? #TheSuicide and #TheTruth. #londontheatre #tuesdaynighttheatreclub Cheers to @jameswrighton for tips and #sueyates for organizing so many :)

And it’s out of the #westend for #theatreclub – and it’s a cracking version of #PrideAndPrejudice so go and see it! #londontheatre #tuesdaynighttheatreclub

That tiny dot in the road on the right is @vtwingrin heading off south. #twisties #motorcycle #roadtrip #Ducati #st3s

Nice of them to provide fresh paint for some fresh #graffiti.

#Redbullring take note. THIS is how you organize a #MotoGP. This is the view you want. #Brno

Day 10: So many miles in so few days. Yesterday we were up at 6:30 am to tackle the #transfaragasan highway and then bailing out of #Romania at high speed to get back to #Hungary. Horrible ride. And now we’re in #Brno, #Czech, having ditched the bikes for a few days and ready for the 400th #MotoGP race. #ForzaVale

Day 9: We made it! #transfagarasan #roadtrip #Romania #MotoGP

Day 9: Yes, it’s on. The “World’s Greatest Road” is near and we’re up early to see for ourselves. The Transfagarasan Highway. #Romania #MotoGP #transfagarasan #roadtrip

Day 8: URGH. Hungover, @vtwingrin gets a puncture, dullest roads yet, bloody horrible roads in Romania, and a long day as well. Halfway through the #roadtrip and I hope it was worth coming here. This country is very strange, it’s so far removed from the UK, it’s the farthest edge of Europe for me, the outer spiral arm of the galaxy here. And yet the roads are jammed with transporters full of used British cars. Eh? I asked a guy about them and he said they were super cheap but fetched good money in Bulgaria. So they’d drive to the UK in three days to get them, and take three days to get them back. Bloody hell.

#Romania is interesting. Bit strange, very different. Roads are Extremely Hazardous! #roadtrip #motogp

Day 8: FACK. Screw in the Ducati’s back tyre, luckily found before we set out on the road. At http://www.karasna.hu/ again for a puncture repair. #Ducati #puncture #motorbike

Day 7: #budapest basilica. Beautiful town.
