The Mizen Head Signal Station lies at the tip of Ireland and is well worth a visit. I haven’t been there since this photo was taken many years ago.
Playa Blanca lies on the southern coast of the island of Lanzarote. It’s a beautiful town, built entirely with tourism in mind. Sunrise wasn’t what I had hoped it would be. The sun is blocked by the new Rubicon Marina (it’s so new that Google Maps thought we were swimming in the sea when we […]
This was the view from my hotel room at The Dream Inn, Santa Cruz last week. Seems like a million miles away now, but in fact it’s only about, oh, maybe six thousand miles. Anyway, I was there with the almost all of Automattic for our annual meetup. It’s a fabulous location, the early morning […]
