It’s a New Computer!

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Okay… so I know I only bought my Macbook Pro last year. But the new Macbook Air is lighter to carry and it’s bench tests tell me that it’s also a bit faster than the Macbook Pro. So last weekend I travelled out to the Apple Store in Doncaster to pick up the newest and highest spec 13″ Macbook Air. And so far I love it! I’ve loaded all the programs I usually use on it already and this week I’ll start doing some photo editing on it to see how it goes. The 1.3kg laptop is going to make a big difference to the weight in my backpack when we head to Europe next month. Can’t wait!

5th and Final Stop – Barcelona

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

I have been playing with the routing of the last part of the Europe trip and in the past few days we finally settled on Barcelona instead of Paris. So I’m very excited to be visiting Spain again in January. It will be a lot cooler there at that time of the year, but we don’t mind. We’ve booked a very nice large apartment right in the Eixample area and close to Pla├ža Catalunya. So this means that the trip and all the accommodation is finally booked! I can’t wait to go now. This is the apartment I found.

IKEA the Movie

I made this short flick over the weekend with Tyson, Nico and Chris. We were headed to IKEA for shopping and some lunch at the IKEA cafe. http://www.http://vimeo.com/31707467
