Click to preview From Venus to Venice pocket and trade book

In 1768 Captain James Cook was sent to the South Pacific to observe the transit of Venus across the sun. Then he went on to discover other things - like the east coast of Australia.

In 1998 I went on a voyage of discovery that took me to Rome, Venice, Istanbul, Milan, Avignon, Florence and other places. But was it Venice I discovered or Venus?

As I observed at the time after a night in Turkey:-

It was in the city of Constantine
That I first thought that she was mine
But I awoke next morning in Istanbul.
