Our week in Tokyo: Champagne and sushi

So I’m back from my week in Tokyo and I’m missing it already. We had such an amazing time, despite the freezing cold weather and the snow. It was our first time in Tokyo in the winter, so that was to be expected - and we packed accordingly! As we’ve been to Tokyo so many times ...

Sitges Pride, 2017

Well. That was an experience! Up until this month, I've associated Sitges with sleepy, relaxing afternoons on the beach and wandering through narrow streets hunting out decision Catalan nibbles. A very chilled out place. But spending a long weekend there during Pride was something very different! And if I'm honest, it was just what I ...

A weekend in Barcelona and Sitges

I've just arrived back from a fabulous weekend in Spain. Even though I travel to Barcelona for work monthly, I don't really know the place. I fly in, do my work and fly straight back out again. After a lot of prompting from clients, I finally booked a weekend in Sitges to follow on from ...

It means I’m “taken”…

An amusing interlude during lunchtime today. I was in one of London's more popular chain sandwich shops. Handing over my sandwich (pastrami, very tasty, thank you) and Diet Coke, the guy serving me noticed the ring on my left hand. "Nice ring", he smiled. "Um thanks?" I replied, more awkwardly than strictly necessary. Really, I'm ...

Iris Robinson: It’s not over

You may recall from previous posts (here, here and here) that I've been following the saga of Iris Robinson's views on "the gays". Well, I'm not alone. The Police Service of Northern Ireland have referred her case to the Public Prosecution Service. A quick recap, courtesy of the Irish Times: The comments were made last ...

Derren Brown is gay?

Yes indeed, he is. And who cares? I mean, good for him and everything. But I wasn't sitting on the very edge of my seat waiting to find out. I do like Brown and really enjoyed his book "Tricks of the Mind", particular when he debunks various peddlers of hocus-pocus. I hope this story just ...
