A little Friday funny we saw last night on our travels…
Business travel; a necessary evil but one that is, every so often, peppered with a rare treat. Take Elldrew’s recent trip to Copenhagen – a city so renowned for it’s gastronomy that even with a mere 3 days notice we were sure we could do better than the hotel restaurant. Elldrew tried all the corporate strings they could pluck but despite the recent Norovirus scandal we failed to secure a last minute table at Noma, instead settling for Relae - awarded a Michelin star in 2012 and, allegedly, where Noma’s chefs go to eat. It had to be good? So Elldrew boarded the flight hoping for no delays so they could make the reservation.
On a recent trip to Spitalfields (London’s oldest markets), we came across their monthly Arts Fair. A bit disheartened by the size of it (about 10 ‘booths’) we decided to have a look around anyway as we had been looking for several months for something to take pride of place on our lounge room wall…the ‘missing’ piece to complete the recent renovations on the ground floor. Having trawled through countless art websites, even making a few unsuccessful gallery trips, we had planned to attend the next Affordable Art Fair, until we came across visual artist Lene Bladbjerg.
Mention the word Tenerife and what springs to mind is a guys and girls party weekend for 18-22 year olds, on par with other destinations such as Ibiza, Faliraki, Aiya Napa and Magaluf (it ain’t tame to say the least). We got a few raised eyebrows when we first looked at heading to Tenerife, but tucked away from all the madness of Playa De Las Americas (well a quick drive by on the motorway to be precise) there is the Abama (not to be confused with a certain American President) Golf & Spa Resort.
