TALES from THE little BIG CITY

After 10 years in the "Land of Smiles" I left just before the last military coup and moved back to Europe. Following my heart, I've been sharing a house in Nürnberg with an old flame and her family since September 2014.

This is the continuing story of a Scotsman who's moved from Glasgow to Bangkok to Nürnberg to change his lifestyle, his perspective, and his career as the endless pressures of dead-end UK wage-slave middleagehood slowly moved in.


That's it in a nutshell..The rest of the site is about my life here, my blog (updated every Friday..mostly), things that piss me off, things that delight or surprise me, travel hints, pictures of the Thailand, and some of the things I'm into like my music check out a VDO snippet on You Tube www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpuPoIlY4Bk ) or more recently you can look at a full track:www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TVFbYNZ-sA or
www.youtube.com/watch?v=EECWJ9hKGC0. You can also simply search youtube under: Fretwire1 for more. More from Germany will follow eventually but for a number of reasons I need to be cautious about what I post.

Oh, and of course, my Midlife Crisis in Action plan (now updated)...Which would appear to be working......
