Casa Oficina Antonio Carneiro in Porto:

October 19th, 2017

On my recent trip to Porto, I focused on visiting museums related to art and which offered free or reduced entry with my Porto Card. Casa Oficina Antonio Carneiro fitted the bill. It’s located in the house/workshop built in 1920 for the painter Antonio Carneiro. The building was also used by Antonio’s sons, the painter […]


Daughters of Penelope Exhibition at the Dovecoat Studios Edinburgh:

October 13th, 2017

The Daughters of Penelope exhibition at the Dovecoat Studios in Edinburgh runs until 20 January 2018. The exhibition features work by various female weavers and artists. Below are some of my personal favourite pieces. ‘True Love (Her)’ and ‘True Love (Him)’ were very striking. ‘Shadow series 1-18’ is a piece by Finnish textile artist Aino Karjaniemi. […]


Where to Experience Authentic Spain Along the Costa Brava:

October 11th, 2017

With around 522,000 visits to the Costa Brava in August 2014 alone, this region is clearly a tourist hotspot for holiday-goers. With one of the most unspoilt stretches of coastline in Europe, delicious food and a beautifully warm climate, it’s understandable why travellers flock to the resorts there. This isn’t a spot that just caters […]


Review of the Royal Hotel Oban:

September 28th, 2017

I stayed at the Royal Hotel Oban on a Thursday night in late September 2017. I’d always wanted to do the railway journey from Glasgow to Oban, so when the Scotrail £17 return flat fare for Club 50 members came up, I decided to stay in Oban for one night. The stay was for two […]


Serralves Park Porto:

September 21st, 2017

Serravles Park is located to the west of the city centre. The Serravles Museum of Contemporary Art is located on the site.  Adult admission to the museum and park is 10 Euro. If you only want to visit the park, it costs 5 Euro for an adult entry. The first sculpture which I encountered in […]


Top 5 destinations For a Freelancer:

September 12th, 2017

Taking advantage of the freedom provided by technology to find job opportunities anywhere in the world is a fact. Nowadays, the most common professions such as bloggers, journalists, sales people, photographers, or web developers are part of this new job trend, the so-called:freelancers. There are thousands of companies hiring nomads, but the one that caught my […]


Adventures in Space: The Architecture of Science Fiction exhibition in Edinburgh:

September 8th, 2017

The Adventures in Space: The Architecture of Science Fiction outdoor exhibition in Edinburgh’s Festival Square runs until 30 September 2017. It’s part of the Festival of Architecture 2017, organised by the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland. I took photos of the Adventures in Space exhibition as it was being set up. I didn’t have time […]


A Trip to the Seaside at Espinho near Porto:

September 7th, 2017

When I was in Porto in mid June it was far hotter than I’d anticipated, well over 30 degrees Celsius almost every day. I thought that it’d be a good idea to head for the Atlantic coast and hopefully a  cooling breeze. As my Porto Card included rail travel as far south as Espinho, I […]


A Quick Guide to Planning a Road Trip:

September 5th, 2017

After several months of wet and icy roads, surreal blue skies and comforting weather are compelling reasons to load up your vehicle and hit the road. However, all your planning will quickly go awry if you cannot rely on your car. An operative failure on your daily travel back and forth is one thing, but […]


Move Over Rio – The Barcelona Carnival is Where You Want to Be!:

August 28th, 2017

Barcelona is a fantastic destination for a weekend break or a longer holiday. With the blend of  culture, coast and countryside the cosmopolitan Catalan city is vibrant, colourful, exciting and diverse. Barcelona is a destination suitable for all the family. This diversity and cacophony of sound and colour is a reason why this is such […]
