This weekend I was busy getting older. I know, I know we all get older all the time, but this was the weekend where I got a new number to prove it. It started off with me and a friend, who has his birthday just two days after mine, inviting a bunch of friends to… Continue reading Birthday weekend
Saturday we had a lovely dinner at one of Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants Heddon Street Kitchen. Already when we were outside we got hit by a nice atmosphere both by the restaurant and the cozy little street it was situated on. The interior of the place did not disappoint either. Sadly my temporary phone camera is… Continue reading Heddon Street Kitchen
Even if there was a very cold wind the London sun greeted us with a smile. The morning of the second day, after a bit of shopping we decided to go to spend some time in Hyde Park.

I’m back from my trip to London, tired but very pleased with the trip. We left on Thursday evening and arrived in London and to the hotel at around 10.30-11.00 at night. This is late enough for me, but if you take in to consideration that this is local time and that England is one… Continue reading London Baby!

Even if the weather was overcast it was a warm day and very good shopping weather. I clearly was not the only one who had come up with this idea, because the streets… Continue reading Easter in Ireland Part 3: Galway
Our base for my stay in Ireland was a nice house in Tuam where the back yard neighbours where sheep and their little lambs. We had a lot of good weather and I got to spend some time in the sunshine or in the sun room to read and relax only disturbed by the little… Continue reading Easter in Ireland part 2: Tuam and Oranmore
As those of you who read my blog will know I spent my Easter holiday in Ireland this year. On our way down we got quite a bit delayed due to really bad weather in Central Europe. But we finally made it to Dublin, in the middle of the night and immediately collapsed on our… Continue reading Easter in Ireland Part 1
The day is finally here and it’s time for me to go on vacation! The last time I was this much in need of a holiday was when I’d just delivered my Masters thesis. Back then I was going for a two week trip to Thailand. This time I’m not going that far away and… Continue reading Ireland here I come!
