The British Museum

Our hotel was just a block away from the British Museum and we went in for another visit. You can always find something there that you haven’t seen before. The stairs as you enter. It was Saturday so it was starting to get crowded but it wasn’t too bad. A giant horse from a temple. Assyrian wall sculpture of the king on a lion hunt. Notice the men at the back keeping the lions away from him. A horse’s head sculpture in the Japanese section. Armour for a Samurai. ...

Pre- Reunion

  Preparing for the arrival of the three I love: Cook favorite foods- Check. Put fresh sheets on the bed- Check. Turn up the heat- Check. Flowers- Check. Make sure everything is just so... At that point, an idea came to mind, "Why not move the armchair in the house-next-door to Sacha's old bedroom, and put the armchair that is utterly impossible to sit on in my bedroom as a decorative monster.  And so I did but not without whacking my back out. Lovely.           The two armchairs are in plac...

The Cleer Flow Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones

The Cleer Flow Bluetooth equipped noise cancelling headphones. Ever since 2016 when Apple forced the issue by eliminating the regular headphone jack on its iPhone 7 model, some headphone manufacturers have necessarily responded by offering Bluetooth connectivity on their headphones. This is, frankly, unfortunate and totally unnecessary, but for Apple’s decision to make things more complicated for us, and clearly motivated by their desire to now sell us expensive headphones to go with their expe...

Unlikely Food Destinations I Love to Visit

The other day I saw an article declaring how strange it was for a certain destination I love to actually have incredible food. I’d visited there several times and already knew how amazing the food scene is, but I was surprised that they were surprised. The fact is, that some cities, regions and even entire countries have terrible reputations when it comes to the culinary scene. Usually, although I admit not always, these reputations aren’t fair, especially in 2019. In the last 15 years or so, n...

KY coffee – Nespresso (with Chinese New Year offers)

My first Nespresso experience was actually at my car mechanic’s office, with the owner raving nonstop about this little machine and how capable and simple it is to brew up a cup of proper coffee in seconds. He then proceeded to show me an assortment of coffee capsules and asked me to choose one. At the time, I’ve only heard about Ethiopian and Indonesian coffee, and had zero clue on tasting notes and the nuances of each origin, so I basically just picked one at random. I can’t remember which co...

Snowmobiling in British Columbia

You like rockets? Well, similar to NASA calling, this is the way Canadians hurtle themselves across (a snowy) space. Gently squeeze that throttle, feel the overpowering torque of the sleigh between your thighs, loudly ripping across the sweet powdery slopes. Roar. Braaap. Laugh. Scream with joy. This is winter in British Columbia, the new snowmobiling capital of the world. Snowmobiling is an incredible rush, and it’s crazy risky — and there’s no better place to try it than in the powder-fille...

A photogenic Tokyo subway station at night

Most of Tokyo’s subway entrances are functional rather than photogenic, which partly explains my ongoing appreciation of this old, previously posted little spot. However, that’s not to say all the modern variants are uninspiring, as this beautiful beacon of urban light amply proves.

KGB museum opens in NYC

Not many people want to relive the Cold War, but there’s no doubt that the KGB — the infamous Soviet security agency — was, and still is, a topic of fascination for many Americans.

Greenland is the largest island as per classification but it is less than one third the size of Australia. The sheer length and breadth of the country, the stringent import laws and effective customs, elaborate screenings and some rather demanding practices are at play when you are relocating to Australia.
