It all started for me about 60+ years ago. General Jumbo was my favourite character in the Beano, being able to control and communicate with models
fascinated me to say the least.
At school we all took the academic subjects in our stride, Maths, Science, Physics were tools to be used – but for what?. Geography put me in a world of my own wanting more to travel.
As for History! – Well if it was swash buckling, pillaging pirates or conquistadores searching for new lands, it had my full attention! , coupled with a blend
of Swiss Family Robinson, Treasure Island, Mutiny on the Bounty and Robinson Crusoe – I guess these were to be my seeds of destiny.
Does it ring any bells ? 🤔⛵
