Back on the Road

Since getting back from Las Vegas in January I haven’t been travelling. I’ve been focussed on moving house and settling in as well as spending time at Blacknight HQ. That all ended Friday. I’m now on the road until the end of the month. 3 trips, 3 weeks, multiple countries. First up is ICANN 58 […]

My flights in 2016 visualised

2016 in Flights

2016 was yet another crazy year for travel for me. I clocked up nearly 250 thousand km over the year! So where the hell was I? This map shows it all: A lot of the flights were to the US, which is fairly normal, as there a lot of events over there. 2016 was also […]

Enjoying Regional Cuisine in Jordan

Last night I had dinner with a couple of friends in one of the hotel’s restaurants. Although I’m in Jordan the restaurant was Lebanese, but it’s still in the same region (more or less). The food was excellent and most of what we had we simply shared “family style”. One of the things that really […]

Signage at Vegas airport

Jetlagged In Vegas

I spent all day yesterday travelling. The flights and everything else were fine, but by about 9 PM local time last night I was completely confused. It was 9pm in Vegas, but 5am in Ireland! So sitting down for a relatively light dinner around the time that some people might be thinking about getting up […]

Istanbul Colours and Flavours

I spent a week in Istanbul, though I only really got to explore the city for two days. The city is fascinating. It’s also incredibly big, so unless you’re prepared to walk a lot you won’t get to see that much! I spent the Saturday and Sunday I was there exploring some of the sights […]

I Love Serbian Pricing

I’m in Belgrade, Serbia, for about 24 hours as I’m speaking at an event here tomorrow. Across the street from the hotel there’s a Costa Coffee so I headed over there to grab a bite to eat and a coffee. I’m always fascinated by the difference in pricing between various countries and how much value […]

Carlow’s Dolmen

I grew up on the west coast of Ireland only a few miles from the Burren region. It’s a beautiful part of the world and has a lot of history. Nowadays I live in Carlow, which is in the southeast of Ireland. It too has history, but even though I’ve been living here for 10 […]

Tongue in cheek marketing

Spotted in the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.. Yes, AVN was being held there at the time, so it was appropriate, but I loved the quite cheeky play with words. Nicely done 🙂 Related Posts:Back on the RoadJetlagged In VegasIn Vegas For NamesConLights, Mats and Other Random Stuff2016 in Flights

In Vegas For NamesCon

I’m in Las Vegas for the next few days at NamesCon. It’s the first internet / domain industry event of 2014 and the list of speakers and attendees is pretty impressive. I’ll be speaking on a couple of panels, but for now I’m going to try and see a bit of Vegas. I was here […]
