This year's award for best dressed pub goes to (drum roll) The Elephant of Faversham! (Applause) (Awkward close up on losers faces)
Nice to see everything so pristine and white, but I’m dreading the morning commute that awaits... will probably take 4 hours today to get to work and back.
The old boys gather, come rain or shine. Barbour, brolly and bobble hats combined. Off they go to hunt. Not fox, duck or goose. Instead, they hunt bargains in Wellington boots.
Snow has finally descended on my little corner of the world turning the gray urban landscape into a temporary wonderland. Will be tough to cycle to work today.
Museo Soumaya tonight
A Run in the Park, Mansfield.
Normally Sundays are reserved for vintage cars found on the streets of London, but this weekend I've swapped them for the Kent Downs to celebrate a whole year pottering about with this one, and two matching doors!
The temptation I felt to write a naughty word was beaten only by the numbness in my fingers from the cold. I'd have gone with 'BUMZ'.
Wish I had that house over there! It would be so magical to wake up to the view of the Millerton Lake and the hills around. My experience with slow travel is making me a new person.

Restoranı - Le Cedre”
Mezelerden ana yemeğe yer kalmayan #restoran
. Çok açken giderseniz bazı siyasi partiler gibi masayı fazlaca donatabilir, üzerine baklavayı yiyemeyebilirsiniz. Üstelik diğer masalar sizi parmakla gösterebilirler. Tabii İsviçre'de bulunduğunuzdan bütçeniz de sarsılabilir. Lütfen dikkat!⠀
Şimdi gitmişken mutlaka ve mutlaka yemeniz gereken mezeler... İçli köfte mesela aynı bizimki gibi. Fakat, seviyorsanız kesinlikle #enginar
yemeden dönmeyin. Sorun, soruşturun, dili bilmiyorsanız blogdaki fotoğrafı gösterin; ama enginar yemeden çıkmayın Le Cedre'den. İtalyan güzel yapıyor, bizdeki dolması tartışılmaz ya da annemin yaptığı etlisi nefis olur; ama burada da denemeniz önerilir.⠀
'ya da yer bırakın ;)
Yemek sonrası taze nane ile yapılan çayı da öneririm.Devamı blogda...⠀

We like Le Cedre meze plates in #Zurich
; very similar to Turkish mezes, and if you like belly dancing then book your table beforehand 😉

Reflection of retro pomo architecture from the train on my way to work in 🇳🇱
Premium Mediocre, Japan-style. Avocado, salmon and tuna sashimi rice bowl with an onsen egg at a family restaurant. Like the equivalent of truffle oil pasta at Applebee's or something. The fish has vague hints of being recently defrosted about it and the rice is cold. I'm in a nondescript family restaurant in the middle of Chiba suburban hell with exhausted-looking, nonetheless chirpy middle-aged waitstaff dressed like French maids. The miso soup has the harsh edge of industrial powdered packets. A strawberry sundae lands on the table next to mine and it looks perfectly, beautifully plastic. The couple shares it and they look as though they are about to bicker, but remain quietly simmering over ice cream.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas......
“Hanging out” in Kenya on safari. I wanted to see a leopard but didn’t. But if I did. It would look like this. 🐯 #humanleopard
Christmas time in Lincoln is so pretty. Already a very photogenic city and well worth a visit anyway but even more delightful during the festive season. The Christmas Market is very popular and I’ve been told it’s well worth a visit!
The wide open spaces of northern Groningen. This is one of many battlefields over wind parks. Very controversial....
Behold, the Rothschild's giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis rothschildi) - a subspecies of Giraffa species. I got to see (and feed!) one - it was an aim to see one. It is one of the most endangered distinct populations of giraffe, with around 1700 individuals estimated left in the wild. Giraffes in general are classified as vulnerable. Very few locations are left where Rothschild's giraffe can be seen in the wild, with notable spots being Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya and Murchison Falls National Park in northern Uganda Various captive breeding programmes are in place — notably at the Giraffe Centre in Nairobi, Kenya — which aim to expand the gene pool in the wild population of Rothschild's giraffe. More than 500 are kept in ISIS (international species information system) registered zoos (which does not include the Nairobi Giraffe Centre), making both it and the reticulated giraffe the most commonly kept phenotypes of Giraffa. 🐾🌈❤️
Sure, why not? I think I’ll post some photos of Holland. Now that I am en route to Estonia.
There are interesting and beautiful Christmas lights all over central London right now. When I was a child growing up in London one of our few outings as a family would be my Dad driving us to Oxford Street to see the Christmas lights. First in my dad’s Racing Green Morris Minor then blue Morris Minor Traveller then Brown/beige Austin Cambridge then bright orange Renault 12. There were probably other cars that I don’t remember but those stick in my mind. So even as an adult I still feel the need to check out the London Christmas lights every year even though I now live in a completely different city.
