Athens

We spent a weekend in Athens recently, where phones are plentiful.

My favourite phone shot of the weekend, taken in the courtyard of the Byzantine and Christian Museum:

 

Down in the basement

It seems odd that in some deep basement in a fictional Gotham there is a real UK phone box lurking in the background:

Entertainment

On the plane over to Australia I watched ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel‘ again. One of my favourite films:

Other recent viewing includes: Dirk Gently (S2), Ordeal by Innocence , SS-GB , Blacklist (S5) and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (LOVE this show):

I found this with other stuff I had put away in the cupboard at my mother’s house in Australia. I don’t know when I picked it up, maybe my travels in Eastern Europe c.1998. I only speak English so I don’t know if it’s funny or not…

I also found a large stash of club and band flyers from the late 1980s and early 1990s. I’m setting up a blog to share those as well. This can be found at –

Australia

I was recently sent this shot from a cousin:

Tilba, NSW

I just returned from a visit home to Australia and took these while I was away:

Fremantle, WA

Montville , QLD

Coed-y-paen, Wales

We came across this beauty when holidaying in Wales. The phone-box conversion speaks to what a friendly place we found South Wales to be.
