Apples

Seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness. The apples are ripe and ready for eating.

Shiitake mushrooms

This ia a mushroom said to have medicinal properties from East Asia. It is wildly popular in Japan where it's used in many "nabe" or hot pot dishes. We just had some fried with eggs and toast - for...

Borough Food Market

As good as always. We tried Somerset cheddar and blue cheese, wonderful exotic fruits and then possibly the best ever Haddock and Chips. This is maybe the best food market in the world!

Firefighters

I was moved by the firefighters statue in front of St Paul's cathedral on my recent visit. The statue celebrates the courage of the hundreds of firefighters who have been killed or injured in the...

Lewes Castle

The town was witness to the Battle of Lewes in 1264. The battle was fought outside the town, but the ancient castle in the town centre is a reminder of the medieval heritage. This photo shows the...

Hot Springs

This page gathers posts about Hot Springs from my travels in Asia, Europe and North America. I have been passionate about visiting hot springs since my early days in Japan, when they were a treasured relief from the crowded streets of urban Tokyo. Since then I have tried the hot springs in most countries I’ve visited, from Iceland to Turkey. I’ve even visited hot springs in the Middle East, a region not usually associated with thermal pleasures.

Not so Smart City

My hotel was on King Abdel Aziz Road, a main road that runs through the south of the city, not even one of the biggest. Night had fallen, and the cars streamed endlessly in the evening rush hour. They seemed quite oblivious of the pedestrian crossing on the edge of...

Saudi Here We Go

This is a dry and dusty city. As we drove back from the airport, the sand hung above the road, and we drove through the stark sand coloured cutaways in the rock. My taxi driver communicated via Google Maps. It was a functional dialogue: I typed in the name of the...

Back in Austria after far too long

So happy to be in Austria again! My flight was early and my first on Wizz Air. I wasn't too sure what the name evoked in me, but it turned out to be a friendly and efficient service. I had bought a rather feminine new rucksack for the occassion, to meet the 40 x 30 x...
