Montenegro From The Air

I’ve been to Montenegro several times over the last few years and I’m always struck by the beauty of the place. This video does a good job of capturing some of it: Unfortunately there aren’t any direct flights from Ireland, but it’s relatively easy to get there via Dubrovnik, London or Paris.

I was in Portland, Oregon last week for the cPanel conference. I was there to deliver a keynote on Wednesday morning, so I had a bit of time in the evenings to catch up with friends in the area. I’d never been to Portland before, though I’d always heard good things about it. I probably […]

New Year 2016 Las Vegas Fireworks

I saw in the New Year this year in Las Vegas with a couple of Polish friends, which was a hell of a lot better than how I spent the previous New Year’s Eve! We all arrived in Vegas a few days early for CES, so it worked out very well. New Year’s Eve in […]

Historic Planes In The Flesh

I was recently in DC for a mixture of business and pleasure. Washington DC is home to the Smithsonian, which is more than just a “museum”. It’s multiple large museums, each with an impressive collection. I had visited the museums in DC proper on previous visits and loved them, but I’d never had the chance […]
