Panoramas pulled from Google Photos with Photonic WordPress plugin.
Panoramas make for a lovely photograph, because one gets a lot more scenery in the photo. It takes a bit of practice taking a good panorama. In the old days one had to take a number of photos and then use software to splice them…
Back in 1988.
I’ve been listening to the Depeche Mode 101 live album recently on my Google Play. It was such an awesome concert, I would have loved to have seen them live. The beat and the atmosphere sounds incredible. It is definitely an album that has to…
Holiday in Mexico City – Part 1.
Here we sit in bar in Mexico City International Airport. Our flight is delayed by 6 hours, so there is no better time to tell you about our holiday in Mexico City and the surrounding areas. Jo and I left London on the 8th April…
What a year 2015 turned out to be?
2015 has proved to be an extra special year in a number of ways. There were a few firsts along the way for the Bowens. You know you are getting old when the f#@!ing optometrist tells you it is time to wear glasses. “No…

Ouch! R20 buys you £1 only.
All this means is that less South Africans will be traveling to our wonderful land. It should mean cheaper holidays to South Africa, if only the airlines would play ball and drop their prices. I have only seen the rand to the pound in the…
Two day meeting at ICE in Atlanta.
The 6th of July was an interesting day because Jo and I flew back from Budapest, where we had been staying for the weekend of the Red Bull Air Race. It was an early start to the day. It was also the day I flew…
How could The Proteas lose that cricket game?
Disaster! South Africa beaten by Pakistan in the cricket world cup at Eden park, New Zealand. A game we should have won with ease. Even more disappointing as I was up the whole night. Our wicket keeper/opening batsman De Kock has not being playing well…
Car Rental – Thrifty Tower Bridge branch is brilliant.
I recently hired a BMW from the Tower Bridge branch of Thrifty.co.uk and I can tell you the service and experience was excellent. The price was equally good considering they beat every other car hire place I looked at for a BMW 320D. The website…
