I just LOVE British spring and it's slightly warmer rain.

I'm not familiar enough with British birds to say for sure, but that might be a Chinese swan goose. Nice angle.

Be careful. They can be surly. A goose once ate my lens cap before I could stop it.

True love lasts forever

Walking amongst the old walls and buildings of Buda, it's easy to forget about our modern worries and day to day affairs and instead just breathe in, soaking up the eternal views. If I lived here I'd probably walk by here every night.

Home away from home

You know when you travel enough, these kind of places kind of start feeling like home. I certainly find my self feeling much more relaxed in these kind of settings then I probably should be.

+Chris Chabot  I have been in that airport and was up on the second level as well.  Funny, we had some time to kill before a flight on ValueJet to Paris.

Nothing quite like spring time in London

This might turn into a series :)

Summer on my mind

When I got to my hotel in Berlin last weekend I was met with 20C weather, bright sun streaming through the Brandenburg Gate, people walking around without jackets and their sleeves rolled up and everyone was just slightly more enthusiastic then normal.

We're not quite in spring time yet here in Western Europe, but the promise of it is certainly in the air. Can't wait to be seduced by it's warm lazy rays again.

Hey, someone left a door open

Ever notice how many great adventures start with that remark? This one was no different, as I was exploring the off the beaten path areas of Budapest and wondering around the old Olympic stadiums I noticed one of the doors to the Puskás Stadium was left open, and no one was around.

Needless to say I didn't resist temptation and I took my sweet time exploring this old giant. It's incredibly to see how this one glorious stadium is slowly turning into dust. The concrete of these huge stands is sagging and has huge cracks everyone. In some places they fastened a tiny bit of wood and netting around it, as if to say 'yeah, we can fix this with just a tiny bit of duct tape', what could possibly go wrong right?

So I'm glad I got to explore this before it's inevitable demise.

Tuxedo Express is slightly pricier compared to some of the other dry cleaners around, but their service is impeccable and the quality of work is very high - so when getting your shirts taken care of to perfection is important, this is the place to go.

This is one of the two Brindisa's in London, with the other one being in Borough Market. Both of them offer an exquisite atmosphere, delightful food and delicacies, good service and a selection of really wonderful spanish wines. There are many Tapas places around that are merely Tapas restaurants because it sounds fashionable - and there are few that are the real deal, this little gem is very much in the latter category.

These people are absolutely fantastic. The vets are some of the best ones in town and they have specialists visiting on set days as well - so they offer a very high level of all types of care. The store next door that they also own has all the top-notch petfood that I was looking for, super helpful advice on how to make my kitties be less stressed during their big move from San Francisco to London, and the service is once again really friendly and great. There's no way I would go anywhere else for my vet

File this one under pleasant and delightful surprise. When you hear market you might think cheap fruits and veggies and the occasional second hand item, but this place is nothing like it: It's a treasure trove of artesian and exquisite foods that you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else in London. And I'm talking some of the best chocolates here, or aged-to-perfection iberico ham, the list of delicacies just goes on and on. If you want to treat your self to an amazing experience and come home with a bag filled with some of the most amazing delights, this is the place to shop

The short of it is that this is a lovely place to eat when you're in the neighborhood. The food is quite good - not stunning mind you, though it's very hard to find stunning in a touristy mass-production kind of place, but with that being said it's very good for the location. Prices are decent, and the service is absolutely lovely. And as they say: Location, location, location - this is right around the corner of a dozen great theaters making this a great place to go for some pre-show delights.

When you find your self in a touristy area, like this very much is. Your expectations tend to be quite low - with countless fresh tourists each day the incentive is just not there to exceed expectations. So that makes this a breath of fresh air - the food really is quite lovely, well presented and tasteful and good value for money. The service is basic but good, the atmosphere is a bit limited by the size and the usual crowd, but all in all it's one of the better places to eat around here.
