I used to have my anxiety shoot through the roof at that time… “will I find something else?” “When?” “Who will […] continue reading »
How BA failed at maths, humanity, and service design
I’ve been on FOUR BA flights since 27th December 2016. This only matters because the last one was a VERY different experience from the first three. The first two were First Class (we used avios, sit back down), and awesome. On my last and fourth one, however, I discovered BA’s new policy of not serving […] continue reading »

Venezia: my place out of time
I did not read. I took photos instead. A lot of photos. Last month, I went to Venice (for the third time). I went with The Man, who finally said that Venice “exceeded [his] expectations”.

Qype: Hilton Athens Hotel in Athens
Room was clean, although the floor seemed a bit dusty. We were disappointed to not have bathrobes in the room by default (and this is an expensive Hilton), and didn’t bother asking for them. An iron and ironing board are in the closet. Dry cleaning facilities are provided, but at €14 for a pair of […] continue reading »
