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 […]

After a few days of jet-lagged work/survival in Singapore, I’d adjusted to the time difference and was enjoying my visit. Unfortunately, it was time to come home! Note to self: ensure the next visit to Singapore includes a weekend for adjusting to the time difference and enjoying the nightlife a bit more! All the same, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

It’s already early March (where did January and February go?!) but so far work has taken me to Dublin three times and Barcelona twice. Both excellent venues, but slightly less so when you’re working hard. All the same, I love to travel. Work takes me interesting places and I (normally) get to stay in lovely […]

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 […]

I’ve just checked-in to my hotel here in Dublin and had to share this… I got a taxi out from the airport and had a surprisingly nice chat with the driver, considering we were discussing Brexit and Trump. We both felt a little helpless and both agreed that focusing on the sunshine was probably more […]

Right now, I’m looking back on December a little wistfully. According to my (unreliable) memory, December 2016 was a lot milder and drier than January 2017. The last couple of weeks in London have featured some really bone-chilling weather and, despite the facts of the matter, I don’t see any longer ‘stretch’ in the evenings. […]
