Now you, too, can have an iPad Mini installed in your car dashboard

No sooner had the iPad Mini gone on sale yesterday, and already someone has a built-in one in their car! Knowing the iPad Mini’s dimensions, the people at Soundwaves in Tampa, FL had already had the dashboard of a Toyata custom fabricated ahead of the iPad Mini’s launch. Here’s a video showing the installation that […]

A beauty contest where losers get the hump

A beauty contest where losers get the hump

Now then camels, form an orderly queue… and no sniggering at the back! Being hot for 365 days of the year can take its toll, which is perhaps partly why every so often you’ll find some light hearted entertainment purely for the amusement of the locals. Or at least that’s what you might think. But […]

Virgin on the ridiculous: is this REALLY what we want from our airlines these days?!

Virgin on the ridiculous: is this REALLY what we want from our airlines these days?!

On selected flights during May, Upper Class fliers with Virgin Atlantic will be ‘treated’ to a new in-flight innovation.  More comfortable seats, free WiFi, a new menu or maybe improved cabin staff, you might wonder?  Think again. No… their great idea – which has reportedly been the culmination of the efforts of four designers working […]

A surprise for diners eating in darkness

A surprise for diners eating in darkness

There’s uproar at one of Paris’ most exclusive restaurants this morning after it was revealed last night that it’s been serving up nothing but fast food since its inception in the early 1990s. Manger dans L’obscurité was one of the first ever restaurants to latch on to the idea of eating in total darkness. It […]

Hotel reviews and Tripadvisor

We’ve touched on the much-debated subject of hotel reviews on this blog before. Whether you like them or loathe them, it seems they are here to stay. And, since it’s Friday, here’s a light-hearted look from comedian Michael McIntyre about them:

Cooking breakfast in your hotel room

Hoteliers… look away now!  It’s Friday so we thought we’d let our hair down a little and share this video with you.  It would seem Natalie Tran likes to have breakfast in her room, but doesn’t want to pay for room service.  Instead, she shows how you can make your own cooked breakfast using one […]

The world’s shortest train

This is clearly fake but it’s Friday so time for a little fun… sit back and admire what is possibly the world’s shortest train! And when you’re done, feel free to re-tweet, share on Facebook, Google+ or whatever… enjoy!

Photograph of the week: Bath at dawn

This week’s photograph is of a young boy, aged around 8 years old, in Dahab, Egypt, attempting to drag his father’s camel into the sea for a bath at dawn. He didn’t succeed and instead had to go and fetch his brother for assistance! Thank you to Michael Shelford Photography for permission to re-produce the […]

How to build an aeroplane in less than 3 minutes

OK, so the subject is perhaps a little misleading… but hopefully you still won’t be disappointed with this fascinating timelapse video of the Boeing 777-200LR being slowly – or quickly, depending on how you look at it – pieced together in Everett, Washington, USA.

Rose petals in the toilet? Just some of the unusual rider requests made at one London hotel

Whilst for many Glastonbury may be a distant memory, festival season is still upon us with numerous dates in July and August seeing a wealth of artists taking to the stage and with them some rather unusual rider requests, as Kensington’s five red star Royal Garden Hotel can attest to. Frequently the hotel of choice […]

Social media gone crazy? See your profile pic on a real 777-200…

Think of the Netherlands, and you’ll most likely think of clogs or windmills. Some may even think of Delftware, a blue and white tin-glazed pottery that dates back to the 16th Century, a heritage that the Dutch airline KLM has recognised for some time as for many years it has been giving out little blue […]

Something you maybe didn’t know about 2011

This post has nothing to do with travel but, since it’s almost the weekend, it’s time for something a little different!  This year we will experience four unusual dates:1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11 and 11/11/11.  Now then… take the last two digits of the year you were born and add the age that you will be this […]

The world’s most unique church?

America’s only floating chapel has surely got to be a contender for the world’s most unique church.  It can currently be found in Sarasota, Florida, and offers Weddings on Water to anyone looking for a ceremony that’s a little different. Shown below is footage of the chapel from one of its previous locations, St. Petersburg, […]

Please RT to win a FREE luxury vacation!

First off… I’d like to apologise. Please forgive the title for it’s completely misleading.  There is no free luxury vacation here – this is in fact nothing more than a Twitter experiment.  Once published, this blog post will automatically go out on Twitter with the subject line “Please RT to win a FREE luxury vacation!” […]
