It Twas' The Night Before Christmas

I forgot to mention in my last post...

We met Santa last weekend in Brussels. The man is such a legend! We caught up for a quick stein of Leffe, his favourite Belgium brew.

I asked the jolly old bugger to share his secret to getting himself pumped and surviving the silly season, without falling asleep on the job. He told me the trick is in the Red-bull and his 'Special Snow' powder. 

After he'd finished indulging in what he called his "Driving Kit", Santa shook my hand, walked out of the pub, performed a huge backflip infront of the Grand Palace, then jumped into his sleigh, all while screaming 'Redbull gives you wings' as he flew off into the distance.


I only just managed to catch his backflip in my lens. But I hope this is enough proof for all you non-believers out there -  that the jolly old fella really does exist!

Merry Christmas!

Brussels Love Mussels

Ahhh Brussel - the home of the worlds finest beer, chocolate, lollies, waffels and Xmas festivities.

The next few shots are from our 24hr stay in Brussels. Its was short but VERY sweet. I mean that quite literally too. I'm pretty sure I ate my own weight in chocolate and waffels!!

Winter Wonderland Wanderings

Adventures to dark locations lit by a swirl of brightly coloured lights are any budding photographers ideal playground!

This week we braved the cold yet again to check out London's famous Winter Wonderland. This Santa-inspired events runs throughout December and is hosted by the iconic Hyde Park. Consisting of everything Christmas - this could make even The Grinch himself jolly.

Parklife around the world

There's something magical about a good park and play equipment. Whether it sparks fond childhood memories, or just makes you beeline for a vacant swing or slippery dip - there's no doubt about it...a good park will bring out the inner child in almost anyone!

These next few pics are from a number of parks that I've come across in my travels.

Iclandic Adventures

So who's been to Iceland??

Well I can happily say I have. I can also quite happily say that i'd go back too. Well that is of course if I actually purchased the right clothing next time.

Its funny if your not wearing proper snow attire e.g. Snow jacket, snow pants and snow boots. Then regardless of whatever else you put on, and or how many layers, I can garuntee that your going to feel like your wearing nothing at all!!

Regardless of the climate. Iceland is amazing in every sense of the word. They are one of the most enviromnetally concious and friendly place in the world, running completely on geothermal and hydroelectricity. The majority of their cars are running on either methane, hydrogen or electric. And last but not least, their scenery is off the richter scale!
