I have no idea.

He’s definitely somewhere. Just a pity I don’t know his exact … whereabouts. I’m assuming he’s loitering around somewhere in France now, forging his way towards Mark Knowles. That’s the plan, anyway.

Something that was pointed out to me (after I placed his furryness in a bag on a plane) was the fact that I should have included a small, lightweight notebook with him, in order for his Keepers to write a small message or so that they could simply sign it – a bit like the way we used to get passport stamps everytime we crossed borders.

I may ask Mark if I can forward him one, so that he can send it with Gulliver.

Anyway – all being well Gulliver should appear in France tomorrow and finally start his journey proper. I had a look at Villauris – assuming there’s only one Villauris in France – and it certainly looks very beautiful.

I’m looking forwards to finding out more about the area, as that’s the point of Gullivers Travel.

Would you have heard of Villauris but for Gulliver? I know I wouldn’t have. And maybe this way we’ll all learn more about various parts of our world that we may not have without Gullivers Keepers’ being good enough to put up with his silly habits and treacle scoffing.

Bring it on, Villauris. And Mark Knowles of course …


Just on with some last minute messing with this journal. Then it’s … time. I’m going to take Gulliver to the post office catch his flight to Vallauris, France.

I don’t know much about Vallauris but that’s the point of Gullivers Travel – I will once he’s been there. Gulliver will be staying with an avid writer/ pro-blogger that goes by the name of Mark Knowles. I won’t write too much about Mark just yet as I want to add who he is in more detail after Gulliver has set off for his next destination.

However, in the meantime, you can read more about Mark, in his own words, here: Mark Knowles on Hubpages.

I have absolutely no idea when Gulliver will return or where he’s going to to be from one week to the next. What I do know is the fact that the world’s going to become a little more interesting from now on.

And all because of Gulliver – and the generosity of others.


Welcome to Gullivers Travel. An online journal following the travels … and paw prints … of an 8″ bear. His journey starts on the 13th August 2009 and his first destination is Vallauris, France.

From there, Gulliver could find himself in Spain … the States … Tasmania. Wherever his current Bear Keeper decides to send him. There are a few minor guidelines. There’s always guidelines … and you’ll find them in the ‘About G Travel’  section. Nothing difficult and certainly not rocket science.

There’s no time limit, this is all about seeing where Gulliver gets to and where he’s going to next. Join in the fun .. sign on to become a potential Bear Keeper.

Help Gulliver – Bear feet … across the world!
