I happen to be a member of a certain British airline’s reward programme, which means that if I spend over a certain amount of money in a year, I get a buy-one-get-one free ticket to use within the next 12 months. Last year, I qualified for that deal, and knowing that I had to use […]Read more "Berlin, April 2017"
After spending the week in Brussels with work, I took the chance to head up north to Amsterdam to visit my parents. Despite travelling a fair amount, it still seems pretty crazy to be able to get on a 2 hour (comfortable) train journey, and be in a totally different European country.

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"
Last month, Grace and I went over to Barcelona for just over a week. I’d been before, but Grace hadn’t, so a trip had been on the cards for a while. 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"
