It’s one year to the day since I felt that first serious flicker of unease; 12 full months since something called coronavirus first made its presence felt in my life.

For it was on February 25, 2020, that I was scheduled to head off for a month’s stay in Venice, travelling by boat and train, a journey that would begin with an early morning ferry from Dublin to Holyhead on the 25th and finish with me – and Dudley, my dog – stepping off the overnight train from Paris and on to the platform in Santa Lucia station in Venice on the morning of the 28th.
