i’m sure you’ve been there, having just visited your hundredth museum on holiday somewhere in Europe, the hundreds of years old frescoes all blurring…

i went to barcelona once, it was rad. i didn’t take enough photos though – was probably drinking too much sangria.
it’s almost weekend, which means plenty of opportunity to spend hours at a cafe somewhere, drinking coffee (or gin or sangria) and talking crap.…
i already have a bicycle (which i love – it’s a black & white cruiser with white tyres) but i just can’t help looking at bicycle sites. the latest one, which my brother sent me, is globe bicycles. there’s something about white/cream tyres that makes everything classier, non?
then i took a trip through my bookmarks (i have the most ridiculous folder called “things to buy” – full of things i could never actually afford to buy) and dug up this gem of a company that i was perving over a while ago – probably my favourite of all – abici italia:

my second visit to paris – it was fantastico!
i did a fair bit of travelling in 2007, so i’m going to start sharing some europa pics. first installment will be copenhagen, just because i’m thinking about it today.
