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 […]

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 […]

Transport For the Last Mile

Even I Would go Camping with These

I remember when I used to go camping, it was pretty far from a special experience. The tent used to look a little bit like this: I’m thinking that the tent featured below would change all that. How cool is it! Not much privacy of course, so you need to be careful who you go […]

Unusual Location for a Market

Perhaps not the most practical place for a food market, but these market stall owners in what is known in Bangkok as “the folding umbrella market” are probably fitter than the average stall holder, purely by virtue of the fact that they have to take it down every time a train goes by. Check out the video. […]

Squashed Car Art (Sydney)

Strolling along the Rocks in Sydney, and this is what we find. Slightly odd, and you can imagine that of course we would have jumped immediately to the aid of the driver of the car. And then we saw the sign. Phew! Very helpful. I wonder when we will get to a point where they have similar […]

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.
