Las Palmas Bar Antics

Very much doing the rounds, but after I previously blogged about the destructive habits of various under 5 year olds, it seemed rude not to also include this little gem. The best thing is that this is actually a preview of a short film to be released soon by Johannes Nyholm, who has a facebook […]

Retro Cities

I recently found a great little site called ‘How to be a Retronaut‘, a site designed for people who “feel they may be living at the wrong time” Check out these great colour images of London and New York in the 40’s and 50’s. For more images of each city click on London and New […]

Twitpics from Space

Of course I love twitter, but I’m only tweeting things from earth. You have to love that the astronauts  on the international space station can also tweet. Check out some of these twit pics they have sent. Life on the space station looks pretty awesome! Check out plenty more photos at the Telegraph website here. […]

Melbourne’s Lanes

Melbourne is pretty much my home town. I wasn’t born there, but spent most of my life there, went school and university there and still love the city. One of the things that sets Melbourne apart and makes it so unique, are the lanes which zig zag the centre of the city. They weren’t as […]

The Decay of Motor City, USA

I wrote recently that Chernobyl, that most unlikely of holiday destinations, was now open for business, and looking to attract travellers interested in something a little unusual.

Brilliant photos from Egypt

The Boston Globe always seems to have the best photos of world events. I have posted photos from Afghanistan here before. Check out the below from the recent Egypt unrest, and definitely go their site and look at the rest. Its impressive stuff, and documents what has been happening in Egypt brilliantly.

A Nice Way to Store Books

The State Library in Victoria has to be one of the most beautiful libraries in the world. A little group of photos below taken on our a recent trip. Very peaceful, very beautiful.

Unusual Holiday Destination: Chernobyl

Here I was thinking that the half life of plutonium has lots of zeros on the end of it! Following the accident in 1986, a 30 km exclusion zone was created and declared unfit for human habitation. So if you are tired of fighting your way past bus-loads of tourists, I’m thinking that one of […]

Bernie and his (Very Expensive) Watch

I have to say, that in the context of more and more horror stories of people being attacked in the streets of London, the recent pictures of Bernie Ecclestone were pretty shocking. Does not really matter if you like or don’t like him (or as a fan of the sport, agree or disagree with the […]
