Be a traveller not a tourist…

Be a traveller not a tourist….BA travellers guide

1) Use public transport. but remember the metro stops at 11pm
2) Use the bus. They are cool and fly by you all the time. It is 1.25 pesos to go most anywhere. And you will feel and look like you are in a movie


3) Walk everywhere else, but remember the Avenue de 9 Julio is the widest avenue in the world. It has 18 lanes of traffic – 7 lanes in each direction and two dual carriageways at either side just to catch you out. Use the subway. Or cross at the Obelisk if you want to stay alive…


4) Remember the ‘ll’ here is pronounced ‘szh’ so ‘Parilla’ is Pareezha’
5) Remember that ‘Y’ is pronounced as a ‘J’

6) The main grid system is like Manhattan, the Architecture is a little like Barcelona, the traffic drives unlike anywhere…

A Green Hyundai? – What does all this mean?

16 Apr

found this today – sort of fits in with my latest blogpost 🙂

Marcus Romer's work & blog


Since August life has been a bit a of a whirlwind.

The 3 most stressful things in life are –

1 – Bereavement

2 – Moving House

3 – Changing jobs

All three have been impacting on my world in one shape or another in the last two months. Which may explain chaotic emails, random tweets and unintelligble ramblings. To clarify though. I am not changing jobs. Susie is. Or rather has. She is now living in Cambridge. But only for part of the time. And in other news that doesn’t mean we are not together. It just means we are not together during the week. That is all

For those of you who do know me. I work in York. I live here. And We have a house here. It was still there this morning when I left it. That is all

For those of you who know me…

For those who know me…

15 Apr

…will know that we have just turned a corner, come out of the woods, seen the light at the end of the tunnel, breathed a sigh of relief, felt grateful, and can now move forwards, face the future, with a spring in our step, without checking over shoulders.

So this hopefully means I can sleep better, not lie awake and jump at every move, spend energy feeling anxious, worry about stupid things, forget where priorities lie and therefore focus more on the real stuff. The important stuff. Not waste energy on stuff I can’t fix. But to spend the time doing the important work, the things that matter. Make changes happen, create inspiring stuff, and above all be better at things.

Those who know me will also know that selling our old house has meant a weight has lifted after two years of uncertainty…

There are new things to focus on, priorities to get right. stuff to do. But now with less of a heavy heart and with more of a sharper wit and flair.

Oh yes and I am sure you can’t tell I have been reading the meditations of Marcus Aurelius. This is my rather pale imitation of his posts and thoughts.

Anyway, we share the same name so why not. After all, as I said corners have been turned and the sky is now blue. The magnolias are out here and there is blossom on the apple tree. This is good.

Onwards and Upwards as ever – as there is no other choice but to keep moving forwards. So family and work are key to making spirits lift. The Pilot team have been amazing and I am looking forward to getting back to making stuff happen again with that fantastic group of people. I am looking forward to this Friday too

I have a feeling its going to be a good Friday…

I am off to see a film in a real cinema – in that London…on April 18th at 21.15
