Wait. Where are all the travel posts?

If you've been here before, you may be wondering where all my travel adventures have gone. I've bundled several years worth of travel posts into a single blog, located elsewhere. This blog will remain geek-central (along with pictures of my artery-clogging meals), and if you're interested, you can follow my travel kvetching over at mylittletravel.blog. ...

Ten things that make me happy

I recently got tagged by Fed to write my own version of his post '10 things that make me happy". But I got the notification while I was lying on the beach in Sitges, so there was no way I was going to touch the keyboard until I was back here in London. As for ...

Better than any medication

I got to work from Sitges, Spain for a couple of days this week and my overall conclusion from the whole experience is that giving me access to unlimited sunshine is better for me than any meds I've been prescribed by a doctor! Despite it being a work trip, I managed to get some time on ...

A brief Midori update

So, as I excitedly wrote last October, I picked up quite the collection of Midori Traveler's Notebooks and accessories when I was in Japan. This required a trip to a branch of Tokyu Hands in each of the cities we visited! But it was definitely worth it, as Tokyu Hands stores are treasure troves of ...

Making bucket list progress

Several moths ago, I made a list of things I'd like to do before I'm 40. My very own 'bucket list'. Purely arbitrary, nothing to do with impending death. I need to emphasise that - every time I mention a bucket list, people think I'm about to share some very sad news about my health. ...

Photo library memories…

So, the great photo upload of 2015 continues - we're down to about 12,000 photos remaining - and I'm struck by just how many excellent and happy memories are contained in these pictures. It's underlined for me how important it is to back up these photos in more than one place. And maybe it's age, ...

Amsterdam eating…

I spent all of last week working in Amsterdam. The unexpected highlight was a meal at the most excellent Cafe Modern, where I ate five mouth-watering courses of deliciousness. It's a set menu, no options, all in for €40. You'd be crazy to quibble or to question their selection. Now my Dutch is okay for ...

Another bucket-list update

After writing my bizarre bucket-list of things I want to do before I turn 40, I didn't really come back with an update after this. So far, I'm not doing too badly. I've managed to make my way over to Iceland and had a really magnificent time. We fell in love with the place and ...

2014: My Year in Review

So, the end of another year. While I'm not a huge fan of celebrating New Year's Eve - people do tend to go over the top in making rash life-changing promises, while others get quite maudlin - I do find it useful to look back over the year and reflect on what I've really enjoyed ...
