Last May, I travelled to Montreal with work to meet up with my team. It was the first time I’d been in Canada, so I was fairly looking forward to it – especially as I’d heard a whole lot of great things about Quebec in general. Denise graciously offered me space to stay in her […]Read more "Montreal, Quebec – May 2016."
Working remotely is great, but one of the big downsides of being part of a company that is spread out all over the world is that you miss out on the regular social side of things… including that great tradition of the office Christmas party. In my old job, it was the highlight of the […]Read more "UKMattician Christmas Dinner 2016 – Edinburgh"
This past week saw the annual Automattic Grand Meetup take place; the one time of the year where every single Automattician that is able gathers together in the same place. Previously this has been in Park City, Utah (see the posts from 2014 and 2015), but this year we headed up to the mountains, in […]Read more "Automattic Grand Meetup 2016 – Whistler, Canada"

Our last few journeys had fallen over the winter months as well (including a visit to Iceland in November), and I felt like we […]Read more "Barcelona on 35mm – June 2016"

Back in December, Grace and I headed over to Brussels for a few days. It’s a city that I haven’t been to in almost ten years, and with its reputation for beer, chocolate, and chips, it was definitely somewhere to return to. We got some cheap flights and booked up for a long weekend as […]Read more "Brussels at Christmas, on film"
The days are getting longer, and the sun is occasionally peeking out from behind the clouds, so yesterday, Grace and I took a trip down the coast to Largs with our friend Al. The day started out with pishing rain, but inevitably the schizophrenic Scottish weather turned things around and it was actually pretty pleasant. […]Read more "Day Trip to Largs"
