Andalusía

written by: Don

Never having been to Spain before, I was dying to see this country with my own eyes. Brought to us by Ulrike (by way of an excellent travel guide), Andalusía was a perfect introduction to the Spanish culture. The trip was fabulous, blessed with lots of sunshine and even more cervazas and tapas - and luckily some good photos to go with it.

Farewell Party

written by: Don

We had a great night out in Soho at El Camion to say farewell to all our friends in London - one of those farewell parties that make you feel like you shouldn't leave at all... Here are some photos of our night out, taken with the Hipstamatic app on my phone which creates this ridiculous 70's look to all the pictures. Hope you like them!

Chilies!

We have recently started to grow our own pot of chilies, having taken some seeds from the local Wahaca restaurant, so I thought I should dump this completely useless bit of information onto the website and share it with you all! This photo-blog will document the progress of our little chili plant.

Unbelievable but true! I have finished my master's thesis and handed it in last week . That means that I can feel like I am done with the MBA :-) Of course I won't have my results for a while still but it is enough to be incredibly relieved! Now I am all in on the planning of this wonderful holiday in Brazil and I can't wait to get my pasty legs under the sun!

Roman Holiday

written by: Don

I have always maintained: if you have never been to Rome, you have never been to Europe. So when we saw this fantastic deal on Expedia for the all inclusive package, including those jump-the-queue guided tours for all the ancient sites, we didn't need much time to make up our mind. Well, especially me who has never been there.
