I do a bit of travel writing - not nearly as much as I used to - but I do receive all sorts of communications from tourist boards, hotel companies and the like. In fact, a hotel PR telling me about a new Oxford hotel was the way in which I discovered Carroll's bank account.

Big Blue Spotty Austrian Feet

Thought I'd share this arresting image which arrived from the Austrian Tourist Board. They're running a contest to win a holiday in Austria - here.

You need to have visited Austria already. I'm not going to apply (I'd rather have a go at Reel Health Stories film contest which will be judged by professional film people) but don't let me stop anyone who feels like a free Austrian trip.

The question which preoccupies me is of course, exactly what's with those big blue spotty feet?
