Before leaving London for Boston (my new home) I visited Paris for the day to film three short films for the Mobile Lives Forum – a research institute set up and resourced by SNCF – French national railways. It was a good day which ended with a visit to Shakespeare’s Books and a quick wine and steak tartare. It was then I realised that I had not changed by watch and had to get to Gare de Nord in a hurry! Anyway, the filming was fun. Now the first of those films has gone live and can be seen at
In the film I outline the basic structure of my approach to mobility developed in my book, On the Move: Mobility in the Modern Western World.
