holiday

welcome beyond

welcome beyond is a website “showcasing the most beautiful and unique vacation homes & boutique hotels around the world” or “hand-picked paradise” – as they put it. well, that’s handy.

these are the kind of places i’d fancy a holiday in… i remember staying in a similarly rustic & charming farmhouse in prince albert once. we opened the fridge to find complementary homemade cheese. i won’t ever forget that. do you want to win people over and make sure they return again and again? give them free cheese.

camping

as a kid my family would often go on camping trips, especially up the coast during the holidays. my parents had this huge canvas tent that was super complicated to put up – but the end result was a harry-potter like palace that could sleep all six of us. perhaps not a palace. i can still remember the smell of that tent… hot grass and sunscreen.

got something for you

it’s almost a month till christmas. and if your supermarkets are anything like ours, you’ve been bombarded with christmas music since october. if only they’d play this holiday album from target, filled with tunes from rad bands like wavves, best coast and coconut records amongst others. you’ll be able to download the songs for free on 28 november.

get in the water

here’s some visual inspiration to celebrate the fact that we’re only about a month away from summer holidays. and for everyone reading this who are north of the equator… muwahahaaaaaaaaaaa.
