My Top 10 Instagram photos from 2012

Posted by on January 9th, 2013 in Feature, Misc, Photos | 4 comments

2012 was a big year for me, I more-or-less integrated back into the society after my Round-The-World trip, I ran with the bulls in Pamplona and I finally signed up for Instagram. So instead of doing a normal post of what I’ve been up to in 2012, I thought I’d pick my top 10 photos from my Instagram feed from 2012. And as a side note, I am completely aware that my posting schedule for December was dubious at...

Last few weeks before Christmas are always insanely busy. There is the company Christmas party and all the other pre-holiday drinking get-togethers; it’s busy at work and after work you’re desperately searching for those perfect Christmas gifts all the while trying to get all your things in order before the holidays and the years end! And all this is not helped by the fact that it’s freezing cold (has been for the last few weeks in London). So to...

London Autumn – Photo essay

Posted by on December 1st, 2012 in Destinations, England, Europe, London | 8 comments

 Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower Albert Camus   Last year I completely missed autumn as I was in South East Asia the whole time; and there isn’t that much colours during the fall there.

Now London autumns...

Postcard – Rice Fields of Thailand

Posted by on November 2nd, 2012 in Asia, HDR, Postcards | 10 comments

When I was driving around Thailand on my motorbike, I saw a lot of rice fields. And I quite like rice fields. They just always seem so serene. Just views that make you want to go and sit down and just look at it. This photo I took on my road trip to Pai. When I saw this, I just knew I had to stop for a photo, which did happen quite a few times on that road trip if...

 Not all chemicals are bad.  Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer. Dave Barry I’d like to say that I’ve always loved beer, but lets be honest here, it took me years to get used to the taste after I first tired it.

Weekend Raid to Belgium

Posted by on October 22nd, 2012 in Belgium, Destinations, Europe | 12 comments

On a cold October morning we gathered troops from all over England. The morning mist still hung in the air as we made our way towards south, towards the coast. We were cold, but the fresh air felt vigorating in our lungs; it was time for a good old fashioned Viking raid to Belgium. From the white cliffs of Dover we launched our ships on the treacherous waters of the English canal. We had planned on landing in Dunkirk,...
