So, that just got a lot easier for everyone to do. I'm seeing pretty poor performance on the MDL site on my Nexus 5 though...

First Big Mac in 4 years! Looks horrific, but it was worth the flight just for this...

I'm looking forward to the Nest Labs press event next week. Going to be investing in some new generation home automation soon and it's been a while since Nests product range had a freshen up.

Hopefully there will be a 2nd gen. Nest Thermostat too...

5 nights, 111,600 steps (52 miles), 2 cities, 2 mountains and half a dozen museums... Norway is awesome!

I would especially recommend Bergen - it's beautiful, and the "Vidden Trail" hiking route is a fantastic day out. Here's my effort: https://www.strava.com/activities/329442003

The food was fantastic and the location is brilliant, right on the beach and underneath the promenade. It has a nice atmosphere and is not too expensive if you make use of the group offers available. Really would have been a candidate for 5 stars but they forgot about my request for a gluten free meal (which equated to removing the sauce), remembered at the last minute and re-cooked my meal as the rest of my table finished theirs. Ended up being a bit of a mess really but they were very apologetic and the meal really was lovely - if a little late - so I don't have the heart to downgrade it to 3 stars. I do still recommend it though. All things considered it was a nice evening out.

Lovely quiet little cottage house within easy reach of Oswestry, Shrewsbury and North Wales. The owners are very friendly and always eager to please, and the room was absolutely pristine with a charm all of its own. The food was also really good and (although I didn't take them up on it) there are also some fine classic cars that you can hire out to take a trip in... Brilliant! A very pleasant experience all round and I will definitely be going back again soon - highly recommend!

The restaurant was fully booked when we arrived but the staff were really helpful and found us a table within 20 minutes. The atmosphere was lovely and the food was good. There was no specifically gluten free meals listed but all the usual foods types were available and the steak was nicely cooked. The bar and terrace area is great and does a large selection of speciality Gin & Tonics, as well as all the usual suspects. It did get a quite slow when it was busy but the staff were always polite and helpful. Great experience all round and I will definitely go again when I am back in the city.

Nice friendly staff, tasty coffee/tea and the cakes were lovely (gluten free Brownies always go down well!). Quite expensive but worth it for the pleasant calming experience. Recommended.

Nice lunch atmosphere and the staff were great. The meal itself was nice and we were not kept waiting. They have a dedicated gluten free menu (in multiple languages) which was very helpful and quite comprehensive. - even the gluten free rolls were lovely and soft! Great views, gluten free menu and reasonably priced - recommended! I will be going again when I am back in the city.

Nicely located in a quiet area but just a 10 minute walk from the square and <5 minutes to the nearest Metro station. The staff were very friendly and the room was well presented and comfortable. It maybe could have done with a desk to work on but for the price this would have been an added bonus. Did the job perfectly. Would stay here again.

Nice little hotel just far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be quiet, but close enough for a pleasant walk back. The room was well presented and the staff helpful. However there is not enough on-site parking for the amount of rooms available, so be prepared to park on the street or pay and display. At the weekend (or on a bank holiday) this was free but worth keeping in mind because they do not make this clear before hand. Overall I think the Hilton Garden Inn is great for a cheap weekend away and would recommend it.
