Humble hill walkers conquer ‘Le Tour du Mont Blanc’

As a man with limited hill walking experience and a propensity to sit in the firing line of the pleasant sunshine, I was at best ambivalent about my wife’s idea of a summer holiday. Circumnavigating around the Mont Blanc range wasn’t top of my ‘self-preservation agenda’ for our summer holidays. […]

Don’t Shelve The Sangria Just Yet!

The beginning of September is a noteworthy part of the year. The 1st is the day the wreckage of HMS Titanic was discovered (and subsequently the ship’s magnificent cellar housing 12,000 bottles of wine – many of which were still intact). It’s independence day in Uzbekistan. It’s Gloria Estefan’s birthday. It is also the 244th day of the […]

The Lone Ranger – A Review

Reportedly, Disney had lost faith in ‘The Lone Ranger’ during the production stages. Despite having Johnny Depp to play the iconic character Tonto, and Director Gore Verbinski of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ fame, the outlook of this film was not all that promising. If you go into this film with […]

Pacific Rim – A Review

‘Pacific Rim’ is this summer’s blockbuster action flick. From viewing the trailer, it was something that looked a bit too familiar.
