Rok’s Funeral

Written: Ljubljana February 14 2013 Kranjska Gora February 13 The priest recites prayerful rhythms I partly recognise. “This must be the ‘Glory Be’… This must be the ‘Our Father’ …” as we call these prayers at home twelve hundred miles… Continue Reading →

No 1 Gatwick – this time with rubbery food

This is a pleasant lounge. But tonight I spent £10 on rubbery chips and almost inedible  burger. How can you make rubbery chips? Seriously? Still, nice staff and good free wine – but I’ll not be eating here again. Previous… Continue Reading →

WIMPS at South Africa’s Media Conference for Youth

A short report written for a different blog. The coach’s engine was overheating. Outside the sun was beating down – it was 35 degrees. Inside, the coach air conditioning was on full pelt to keep us cool. And we were… Continue Reading →

No1 Lounge Birmingham Airport

Birmingham has always been my least favourite airport. No 1 Lounge is good. Similar to but better than No 1 Gatwick, it has a big “complimentary” bar, a good range of “complimentary” food and a reasonable pay for menu. Very… Continue Reading →

Belfast City Airport – Priority Pass lounge

The Flybe is now the PP lounge with British Airways lounge next door. Pretty straight forward: beer, wine, snacks, soft drinks and muffins. Newspapers, magazines. Free wifi. Comfortable with view of runway.

Gatwick No 1 – Airport lounge

I keep meaning to keep a note of airport lounges for my own use. As with most things, once home, I never manage to get round to it. But technology and wifi suddenly makes it easier. Airport lounges do change… Continue Reading →

Going for a drink in Slovenia

Although this was posted in 2008, it was written in 1996. Slovenia has seen many positive changes since then and is even more enchanting. Janez drives an old yellow Zastafa 750 motorcar. It splutters and hiccoughs its way up the… Continue Reading →
