Loos v Oslu

Friends, today is a special today, and this is a special blog post. I’m sure you could sense it as soon as you clicked on whatever link brought you to my door – this isn’t the typical Bland Blog installment. Why? Because this is my first CROSSOVER post. That’s right, today’s literary gobbet from me […]

OSSEGG Praha

[I didn’t take any pictures in the place so I’m going to provide stock photos that I think will give you an idea of the general ambience.] [Eg this picture might imply that Ossegg was either a glass cube or an Apple Store, but I’m actually just trying to make the point that it was […]

Unfortunately for me, […]

The Hunt for a Local

– or: Why It’s Legitimate For Me to Spend 20% of My Money on Beer – All the photos in this post (and, indeed, most of my other posts) were taken by the very talented TestExplosion. Recently (read: four days ago) I moved to Prague. Typically disorganised and, if I do say so, almost wilfully […]
