Super Fly Finale.

Phew. A three-week US tour behind us. It’s been tough. It’s been stamina hammering. But it’s been fun. Shame to be leaving really, but commitments elsewhere beckon. We do leave with a ton of strong impressions and good memories though – and loads of pics. In all we managed to cram a heck of a lot into the allotted time, but made sure we enjoyed ourselves too – stopping to smell the roses and see the sights when we could. Now for the same old “suitcase – taxi – airport…”. Where we’re off to next I’ll tell you later on. But it sure looks like we’re in for a total change of landscape.

Our last day, in New York, turned out to be a pleasantly sassy, super-fly summation: a peachy press conference attended by folks from all over the world – including star participant Fernando Alonso! He’s playing the lead role in the new clip for our Safeguarding Me campaign (if you only knew how we had to guard his special “tomita” (the little Japanese talisman in the vid) during shooting!). Have a look for yourself:

“So the Welshman says…”:

K.A. glamorously making up for our casual dress :)

So, yeah, it’s +34…

Our take on a checkered flag

Where we were gave great views of that place of dreadful memories – ground zero, where construction of a new building is still taking place. Swish skyscraper. Due to open at the end of 2013. 105 floors, all glassy and classy. Good work!:

That’s it for today. Later!…

Kamchatka-2015 – warm-up.

My Kamchatka-2015 vacation began in the town of Paratunka. This is a location commonly used by tourists for spending the first night on the peninsula after flying in from afar, before setting off for their first full-fledged destination the next day. To the south of Paratunka are conveniently located two volcanoes, both of which are must-sees/climbs: Mutnovsky […]

Mission Impossible 5 – in KLondon!

I’ve been known to have a pop at the quality of Hollywood blockbuster movies released in recent years. But there’s a new film that bucks the trend, which I recommend everyone sees at the soonest! (But then I would say that)… This impossibly incredible film I’m talking about is Mission Impossible 5. So what’s so […]

Top-100 Series: South America.

South America Continuing our slow migration across the surface of the globe as per my Top-100, it’s now the turn of South America to show us what it’s got. And it’s got plenty… 18. Angel Falls, Venezuela The highest waterfall in the world; almost a kilometer of free-falling water. Haven’t been myself, but have heard rave […]

Kamchatka-2015 – top to bottom!

In my humble opinion, Kamchatka is the most fascinating and beautiful place on the planet. Bold statement, I know; but coming from a power-globetrotter like myself, maybe you won’t reject it out of hand? If you do – read the upcoming series of posts on this year’s An-Kam (annual Kamchatka), and let’s see if you haven’t […]

Kamchatka-2015 – aperitif.

“Further [vertically] up there, there’s a path!” – Our guide, Fyodr.   Hi all! Phew! Back to civilization from the harsh wilds of Kamchatka, and beginning the slow acclimatization back to modern city life and all its creature comforts. In all we trekked 315km on foot, and probably traveled thousands of kilometers in all-terrain vehicles […]
