A Walk Around Benalmadena

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 05:28:19 +0000

When I was in Malaga in April 2017 with our Gary, we decided to take the train down to Benalmadena for a walk along the Prom. The rail track runs around one mile inland from the coast. Not a problem when walking down hill, but I though it might be more of an issue walking […]

Review of The Waterfront, Anstruther, Scotland

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 05:48:48 +0000

I stayed at The Waterfront in Anstruther on Scotland’s east coast on a Sunday night in November 2017. I’d been keen to say there for some time, as it gets very good reviews and I hadn’t been to Anstruther for ages. With a single room at The Waterfront often costing £60+, I was on the […]

McCaig’s Tower in Oban

Thu, 05 Apr 2018 13:45:05 +0000

If you visit the town of Oban, on the Scottish west coast, I recommend that you go up to McCaig’s Tower.  It was designed by the Scottish banker James Stuart McCaig as a monument to his family and a job creation scheme. But it was never completed. It was a beautiful sunny September evening during […]

A Day Trip to Alora from Malaga

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 05:34:10 +0000

When I visited Malaga for the second time, I decided to take the train to the typical white-washed Andalucian village of Alora, which lies around 40 kms north east of the city of Malaga. Alora is at the northern end of the line C2 of the Cercanias network, of which line C2 runs from Malaga […]

Shonky: The Aesthetics of Awkwardness at Dundee Contemporary Arts

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 16:19:04 +0000

The Shonky: The Aesthetics of Awkwardness exhibition runs until the 27 May 2018 at Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA). It is a exhibition of works by various artists, curated by John Walter. I really liked the exhibition. There were several colourful sculptures by Niki de Saint Phalle, whose work I have saw at the Museum of […]

Visiting Kellie Castle Garden in Scotland

Sun, 11 Mar 2018 05:59:23 +0000

I visited Kellie Castle gardens in early October. It was a beautiful sunny day. I had a picnic lunch in small gated garden. The flowers there made it seem like Spring instead of Autumn. There’s a recreation of  Hew Lorimer’s scuplture studio. In a continuation of that theme, the Talking Heads @ Kellie Castle features […]

Edinburgh Lumen

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 10:28:43 +0000

You’d better move fast if you want to see the Edinburgh Lumen display, as it only runs until tomorrow, Sunday 11 March 2018. There is no entry fee. There are three light installations around Edinburgh city centre. But I only had time to visit two, as I wanted to catch the last train back home to […]

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 09:45:06 +0000

The Art of the Future exhibition is on at the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh until 29 April 2018. Schools and community groups around Scotland were mailed a box of art supplies, with which to create work about topics close to their hearts.  

Our Whistle-stop Tour of Airport Convenience and Luxury

Wed, 07 Mar 2018 16:13:01 +0000

You’ve most likely let out a deep and dutiful sigh at the idea of venturing to the airport. While it’s a means to an end, the process of travelling there and waiting in a departure lounge feels like being sent down the mines for a day’s hard graft. If you’re travel-phobic then you’ll feel this […]
