Category Archives: Travel and Places

I go to a lot of places, usually for work. I have a “ritual” of filming in them after hours, and some of the series of films I have made, as well as other writings, are in this section. These vlogs will be subcategorized by country and visit.

Only a Winter’s Tail


Original YT playout date: 15 April 2009
Duration: 10:06

Warsaw half-marathon, Spring 2009


Original YT playout date: 4 April 2009
Duration: 1:13:09

See some sights from Warsaw and catch yourself, if you were in it as most of the runners will appear on this film. It’s a long film in order to get most runners actually running, rather than the alternative of just taking a gallery of photos, which I have done and now lots of people do.
