Digital Portraits from Rotten Dollies

I absolutely love these digital portraits of my sister and myself from Alana Moffatt aka Rotten Dollies. She had them to me within only a few hours of ordering and they were only $5. Bargain! You can check out her website here: Or for the online store: Thanks Alana!

Screenshots on Macbook running Windows

I'm running Windows 7 on a Macbook Pro and recently wanted to do a screenshot (without using a special application). If you're looking for the answer, try: shift + fn + f11. Hopefully that helps save you 15 minutes worth of Googling :)

Contiki Day 7: Prague to Vienna

As most of today was spent on the bus traveling Vienna I wasn't planning on writing a blog post. However, we stopped off at the Sedlec Ossuary and it was just way too crazy to not post a couple of photos...

Contiki: Day 6 Prague

Today was our last full day in Prague. Determined to find a geocache after failing miserably last time we visited, we decided to head off to the John Lennon wall. The wall is an odd attraction. Lennon was never at the site where it stands, in fact he never actually visited Prague at all. The [...]

Contiki: Days 4 & 5. Berlin -> Prague

Most of today was spent on the bus from Berlin to Prague, via Dresden. I was worried that so much time on a bus would become tedious but as it's around 0-2° in most places, the warmth of the bus is a welcome relief. The stop in Dresden was odd as it appeared the only [...]

Contiki: Day 3 Berlin

The tour so far has been very sobering as we've been learning about the suffering many people experienced in Berlin during the World Wars and particularly during the National Socialist period. Today Contiki had arranged a morning walking tour with an English speaking guide. He took us past several sites we'd already seen but then [...]

Contiki: Day 2 Berlin

Today we visited the Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum. Its taken me a little while to write this blog post as it's just so difficult to decide what to say about such a horrible place. I've heard stories about what went on in concentration camps but being there and seeing the grounds for myself just made [...]

After an early start on Saturday, we said our goodbyes to London and departed Heathrow for Berlin. We checked into The Grand Hotel and after settling in, went down to the function room to meet up with our tour group. Our guide, JB, gave us the low down on how the tour would work and [...]

Dear London…

A blog post. For our friends, family, and future selves. London, it’s been a fabulous two years but it’s time to say goodbye. It’s not you, it’s us. And UK border control. Truth be told, we’ve had a few opportunities to stay here longer but we’re looking forward to heading home. Our intention was always [...]
