Travel and Games

Me and my fiancé are eagerly counting down the days until we head to the UK/Europe for a five week vacation. It’s a very exciting time given neither of us have really done much in the way of travel and certainly nothing of substance abroad.  The trip started out with me being asked to be a groomsmen at a friends wedding, and has spawned out from there. During our time overseas we’ll be visiting Italy, Scotland, Belgium (to attend a close friends wedding), France and Netherlands. Some of the highlights will probably end up being visiting the Vatican, spending…

Long Time No See

It’s been almost two years now since I last posted here and in that time quite a lot has happened. Firstly, I’ve neglected the blog somewhat more or less because I didn’t have anything I felt a strong urge to post. The site lacks direction and I’m still a bit unsure what sort of content I want to put on here. Part of me is inclined to drop the personal posts and use it as a way to communicate more work related posts, but the jury is still out on whether thats something I want to do. In any event, I feel motivated to post something now, so lets see where this goes shall we?

Look! It’s 2013!

It feels like an eternity since I posted anything here. That could be for a number of reasons, but I’m guessing the prominent one is that it has in fact been an eternity since I posted here. Anyway it turns out I’m still alive, and at times, kicking. In fact, not only am I still here but so is mankind in general. So much for the doomsday theories. Who’d have guessed it was a pile of crap all along? In order to waste a few bytes on some server somewhere I thought it’d be worthwhile doing a bit of a brain dump onto yours and my monitor.

F!NK Different!

Just a short piece to note a rather spectacular set of home ware I came across recently in my travels around Canberra. I was at the Australian Gallery of Modern Art and on my way out I stopped by the store. Truth be told, I was curious to see the Blunt Umbrella’s I knew they sold but it was some vases, platters and jugs by the Australian design firm F!NK Design that caught my eye. There probably isn’t a lot to say other than I find the products to be absolutely stunning, beautifully simple yet completely striking.
