With 6,500 images spread over 1,600 pages and weighing 6.5kg, Olympic Games – The Design is quite the droll-worthy Kickstarter project. Backed!
When it comes to public transport, the Dutch really have their shit together, don’t they.
While it’s lovely to be back in Amsterdam, given this is my fourth visit in five years, feeling somewhat inured by it all. Excited by the prospect of venturing further afield on Saturday… Zaanse Schans perhaps?
The Dutch deserved that win, with England an embarrassment, both on and off the pitch.
Cheering on the team in red this evening.
Just found out that @Pret have discontinued their egg and tomato breakfast baguette. Devastated.
After 18 consecutive weeks, have decided to press pause on writing weeknotes. They’re getting harder and harder to compile and take up precious downtime over a weekend. But that’s okay! Was fun while it lasted; perhaps I’ll return to writing them again in the autumn.
Interesting responses to my earlier query, thanks everyone. Seems like a toss-up between Groningen and Maastricht. I’ve got a few days set aside; maybe I should try and visit both?
Each year after attending CSS Day in Amsterdam, I visit a different city in the Netherlands. So far I’ve been to Rotterdam, Utrecht and The Hague. Venturing beyond the Randstad, where should I head this year?
Sticking with shorter 5km runs for now, but steadily increasing my pace.
Not sure what’s more maddening: Brexit, or the Independent Group/TIG/Change UK/Remain Alliance’s media and campaign strategy. Bunch of bloody amateurs.
With help from my personal trainer, over the last four years I’ve lost 8kg, and become much stronger and fitter in the process. Tonight was our final session together before he relocates to China. So thanks, Jonny; each sprint finish has been a blast!
Travelling from Brighton to Gatwick, it’s possible to spot a Class 313 with the old British Rail blue/grey livery, and an Airbus A319 sporting the historic livery of BEA. Nostalgia has gone mainstream.
I don’t care what you say; Great Western Railway easily has the best livery on the network. If only the same could be said for its service and punctuality.
First time attending @frontendlondon in many, many years; weird to be back without seeing all the familiar faces of old.
Watched After Life fully expecting to hate it but, aside from its chocolate-box depiction of England and overly saccharine moments, think it may be Gervais’ finest work since The Office. As vehicles for his opinions go, it’s surprisingly thoughtful and delightful.
Spending the day exploring Margate which, according to Bradshaw, is “essentially and irredeemably vulgar”.
