We made our wedding rings last week. Was a great experience and something that I’m sure we’ll remember for a long time to come. One of the things I liked about it was that your wedding ring is possibly the item you’ll keep for the longest time in your life, and it’s nice to have […]
Although never quite the centre of an empire, Budapest is impressively grand. I didn’t know that the city is made up of 3 separate cities that have grown together. Buda on the west of the Danube, and Pest on the east and Obuda to the north-east. Apparently the ‘Buda’ part is named after the city’s […]
I spent 3 nights in Bratislava and really enjoyed it. I think that a large percentage of your opinion of somewhere is made up by experience rather than the place itself.

You know i couldn’t resist the white beach photos at some point! Click the photo for more pics… After a week in the Philippines’ golden nugget island of Boracay, we decided to leave the beaches behind for a while, and headed off to the remote corner of Palawan. A 5 minute tricycle, followed by a […]
We spent a glorious 10 days on a small island called Malapascua, just off the tip of Cebu island at the top. Sadly i didn’t take any photos of the palm tree rimmed white sand beaches (use your imagination, or Google Malapascua!) . However, i did take a few snaps underwater during some amazing dives! […]
The Hemp Trading Company and The Burma Campaign UK have joined forces to create a darn cool new t-shirt!
