Geek Adventure Goals for 2017 (Glasgow and beyond)

I started My Big Geek Adventure in September 2012. Wow! That feels like a really long time ago and it’s become such a massive part of my life. I sometimes wonder what I would be doing if I hadn’t written that list nearly four and a half years ago. This year is shaping up to be […]

Bank Holiday Bookshop Bonanza – Another Tick off the List!

While ‘Visit the book town of Wigtown’ has been on my list for a while, it’s been on my radar for much, much longer.  Ever since I heard that there was a National Book town in Scotland I was desperate to go and visit but every time I planned to go, my plans were scuppered […]
