Is the magic real?

Is the magic real?

Disneyland Paris Having two young daughters has its benefits, for one thing, it's a great excuse to experience Disneyland for the first time as a 33-year-old without looking too weird. We decided to fly over to Paris rather than drive or train, purely for ease. It would have been a perfect flight if our pushchair came off at the other end, what a great start. The 8 am flight got us to the Hotel Cheyenne by midday Wednesday giving us half a day to head to the park and get our bearings. Our hotel was just a 10-minute shuttle bus...

Bangkok with the Family. Really?

Bangkok with the Family. Really?

Tags: Bangkok

Bangkok. "Ladyboys". That's how the conversation normally starts. Well if that's your vision, good for you. But its a long way from the truth. It's like saying London is cheap. Having worked in the Far East, I had the idea to take my wife & 9 year old to Bangkok. "Bangkok???", people would say. "That's a bit extreme for a 9 year old." That's because you have never been" We flew Qatar Airways from Birmingham on the new Dreamliner, Economy of course. Business class would be wasted on a 9 year old. Even though she did ask why we were not in...

Having a store here at HQ, means people tell us stories over a cup of tea, we also get to become a part of those stories. It's called being social, as opposed to social media and it's making a come back. So a couple of Paul Weller stories. Back in June, a gentleman popped into the shop for the first time, he became quite chatty, we had a cuppa and he goes on to tell us he has bought Paul Wellers classic Mercedes. Cool as fuck in our world. He said he would bring it the shop when he had...

Bike Shed and Phoenix Arts Club - London

24 Hours in London Let's skip the manic traffic on the M1 and the standard train journey into the capital and immerse ourselves deep into S&B's packed 24 hour affair with London. The hotel wasn't a 5*, from the outside it resembled a local Chinese takeaway, with rickety stairs leading to a "cosy" twin and "en suite". Bags dropped at Seven Dials and equipped with Google maps we set out in search of a little cafe in Shoreditch. We could have taken the tube but it seemed a waste not to take in all that scenery on offer, with every street corner...

The Mediterranean Family holiday

The Mediterranean Family holiday

Posted by Andrew Frogson on

Growing up and having kids puts those blissful hedonistic days of Ibiza well behind you. Early mornings at Space, late nights at Pacha have played a part in summers many years ago. But could the body and mind handle it nowadays? Probably not. There is only one 2 o'clock in my world and it's in the afternoon. When on holiday, it's probably spent snoozing under the Mediterranean blue sky with a full belly.
