Welcome to Mark and Jutta Brayne’s PsychLotherapists blog – yes, with an L – covering mainly our various tandem trips to crazy places like New Zealand and the Baltics.
We’re aiming soon to cluster posts in a more accessible and user-friendly manner, but in the meantime, enjoy what’s here.
This blog has posts going back several years now, to when Mark – at that time not yet remarried to Jutta, which came to pass in 2013 after a break of 13 years – cycled to Budapest and back in 2008, and then the length of New Zealand’s South Island in 2012.
There are recordings from Mark’s time as BBC radio correspondent in Beijing and elsewhere in the 1980s, some in full feature form, some as packages ready to assemble.
For some crazier fun, enjoy our Barbershop quartet The Four Tones singing in Beijing in 1986, in which Mark was joined by American then-businessman Bill Zarrit, US Embassy then-charge Darryl Johnson and the British Council’s Jasper Utley.
