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.

Prague Vlog # 10 – Left, Right, Left, Right!


Original YT playout date: 30 August 2009
Duration: 1:10:15

Featuring the beauty of the sky while flying in, tips on how to get to the city from the airport without spending more than necessary, and a walk one evening in Prague.

Features discussion about the now dismantled alphabet man statue, about rotator cuff injuries and a cover of mine of a famous Ralph Mc Tell song.

It could be my best Prague film so far, so get a coffee, pull up a chair, and enjoy!

A flying visit to Bratislava


Original YT playout date: 29 August 2009
Duration: 12:48

I try to make a few memories of a very rushed trip to the capital city of Slovakia. This is demonetised because of the taxi driver’s music we can barely hear. Bots are better are hearing small sounds than we are.

Prague Vlog #7 – Breakfast Time in Prague


Original YT playout date: 16 August 2009
Duration: 36:50

“We look at what it looks like landing in a propellor plane at Prague airport, and then there’s a walk to Cafe Louvre on Narodni for breakfast. I have a bit of a rant about languages and the way people are taught in higher education these days.

After that there’s a look through the train window at Pardubice – a little footage I didn’t have anywhere else to put.”

Prague Vlog #6 – Sixt Humour


Original YT playout date: 9 August 2009
Duration: 12:55

Analysing some rather dubious advertising humour in the Prague airport. Female passengers collecting their luggage are subjected to demeaning sexist allusions by the car-hire company with the full complicity of the airport authorities, but it’s supposed to be humour, so it’s OK. After that a few insights on my walk to work one bright morning.

Highlights from the last of Richard Berkeley’s Tasty Classic events of 2008-2009 season. If you want to attend one of these events for the creme de la creme brulee of Warsaw’s cultural elite, then let me know and I’ll try to swing you an invite…
