Blast from the Past: St Basil

Flickr: Number 10I don't know who St Basil was (Wikipedia) but I do know he has the most magnificent Roald Dahl/Quentin Blake 'church' named after him. Much like the Interisland ferry between the two New Zealand islands (incorporating Pelorus Jack), was the most amazingly exotic place in the world for a 12 year-old boy in Wales ... Russia was "so far away".

Going there was a dream (or itch) to be fullfilled and when I did, it was just as good as I'd hopped.

As is Aotearoa.

Only Iceland to go!
