A Quick Visit to Cork

Cozy Cork is Ireland’s second city, but it’s often over-shadowed by big brother Dublin and stunning Galway. As a result of sheer luck and “why not let’s do it” attitude, Anne and I ended up in Cork for a day in November. But, 24 hours is enough to fall in love with this city.

We share some moments from our trip in this short video.

We are already planning a trip back to beautiful Ireland and accepting tips on where we should go next!

A glimpse of MONA

The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart, Tasmania is the largest privately funded museum in Australia. It houses art and antiques from the private collection of David Walsh, a Tasmanian who has made a fortune by being a professional gambler. Walsh has described the museum as a “subversive adult Disneyland,” and rightly so. MONA is attracting an unprecedented number of tourists to Hobart, like myself.

But if you want to fully enjoy everything MONA has to offer, here’s a tip: go there with an open mind and an empty stomach.

Enjoy this short video I made, using the beat of my favourite installation, a water fountain spitting out words, and I think it represents the flood of information we are exposed to in our every days lives.

Befriending our bikes

One of the first things I did when I moved to Aarhus, Denmark was get myself a bike. For the first few days of school, I’d bike alone (read: I’d walk my bike uphill and pedal some of the way) and then eventually my housemates got themselves adorable bicycles too. Thus, started a quest to find bike lights, baskets, fix tires, find seat covers and familiarize ourselves with the best routes. It took some time, but we slowly became really good friends with our bikes (and each other).

Here is a glimpse of one of our mornings as we set off to enjoy Aarhus (or go to school, more likely).

Featuring my pro biker babes: Fanny (France), Sonja (Serbia) and Nina (Canada? Germany? Malawi? I don’t even know!)
