Awesome Superyachts: Nero

Its been a while, but I thought I would continue my little series on impressive superyachts. This is one that is very different to the first one (which was the ultra modern SeaForceOne). The absolutely beautiful Nero is however not old. Just not modern. She is in fact brand new, having been constructed in 2008 […]

Why we Don’t See More Aliens on Earth

So today apparently is the day that the Voyager space probe launched in 1977 will reach the edge of our solar system and become the first man made object to travel into interstellar space. Thats pretty awesome. The best part is that although it was built in the 70s, it is powered by plutonium which […]

Old Market, Siem Reap

These photos were taken on an end-of-rainy season trip to a local market for local people this year in Siem Reap in Cambodia. The Old Market is a great mixture of colourful stalls, merchandise and characters. All images are subject to copyright.

Run, little green man, RUN

The design of everyday objects that surround us on our streets and therefore in our lives make such a huge difference to my mood when I visit a new city. Something that we all spend a lot of time looking at are of course the indicators for when we can and should not, cross the […]

Awesome Superyacht: SeaForceOne

With summer behind us, I feel its only fair to keep spirits up with a little series about superyachts. Of course I have written here before about, amongst other things, Mukesh Ambani’s yacht. But lets focus on some more. The first is called Sea Force 1. She is owned by a London banker who wanted […]

Cities in the Clouds

Love these photos of cities in the clouds. First up Dubai (you can almost imagine Sheikh Zayed Road running between the buildings, although i have to say that this image always looked a little¬†photo shopped¬†to me?) Next up San Francisco of course, a city that looks great in the clouds. Luckily. Woolworth’s tower in the […]

Trip Around the World from your Sofa

Take an inspiring and inspired trip around the world from the comfort of your own lounge with this extremely well stitched together and edited film. In their words: 3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious […]

Landing at St Barts

This is not the first time I have written about scary plane landings, and I also have to admit to a liking of the show “Airplane investigation”. I have never been to St Barts, but I must say that after seeing these collections of landings (or attempted landings, or in some cases even failed landings), […]

Missed Flight

Old one, but a good one. Lady reacts to missing a flight at Hong Kong airport to LA via Manila (since learning that she was on en-route to LA, this suddenly all makes sense!).I just love the repeated, ongoing and seemingly relentless despair that she shows at missing that plane. The poor woman, she was […]

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 […]
