The lack of sleep is getting to me…

After Saturday night's surprise visit from the pizza delivery man, I was hoping I'd be tired enough last night to catch up on some sleep. Following an early flight to Barcelona for work, a solid few hours working in my hotel room and a long walk around town, I felt ready for bed. After nipping ...

I spoke too soon…

After yesterday's optimism and sheer joy at cobbling together such an enjoyable Saturday, I spent most of last night wide awake due to a combination of noisy neighbours, insomnia and the arrival of an unrequested pizza. I was in bed and ready for sleep by 10pm last night, due to an early start. I drifted ...

Setting up a perfect Saturday.

Yes, I know we're only half-way through the day, but it's shaping up to be rather perfect. I woke up this morning after an epic sleep, feeling rather more human than I have all week. I worked my little ass off in Dublin on Thursday and Friday and, while I was delighted with the result, ...

Singapore to London: A first class experience with Malaysia Airlines

The return trip from Singapore was once again with Malaysian Airline, but this time I was treated to First Class. Frank managed to find an excellent deal, which meant the price was far from exorbitant and it gave me something to really look forward to. Singapore to KL I had a couple of hours to ...

London to Singapore with Malaysia Airlines

We've just arrived in our Singapore hotel, so it's time to share a quick review of the journey here. Our check-in at Heathrow T4 went without a hitch and we quickly passed through security. In possibly record time! No shopping required, so we headed straight for the airline lounge to wait for our flight. We ...

Packing for success: a frequent flyer writes…

As I prep for my few days in Singapore, I turn to my trusty packing list in Evernote to remind me of all the important things that must be in my bags before I leave. Over the years, I've quickly realised that it's much more efficient to work through a packing list than to keep ...

A speedy Asian turnaround: Singapore in three days!

After making a list of all my upcoming travels, it was inevitable that another trip would make its way into my schedule. And so it has! Tomorrow evening, I fly to Singapore for business. I get there on the Tuesday night, and spend Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on a combination of meetings, workshops and sightseeing. ...

And then my back exploded!

I was working in Barcelona Thursday and Friday of this week. It's something I usually look forward to as I get some time in one of my favourite cities, work with great clients and arrange travel set to a very human schedule. Thursday went well and I landed in some lovely Barcelona sunshine. I even ...

Enjoying Dun Laoghaire in the sun

I'm in Dublin for work right now, staying here until Thursday night. And lucky for me, I get to stay in the town where I grew up, Dun Laoghaire, which is south of the City.  I landed to a surprising - but welcome! - amount of winter sunshine, so as soon as I'd unpacked and ...
