This is not exactly what you planned when you organised a family skiing holiday as all you were thinking about was hitting the slopes and warming up with a nice hot chocolate after a long, exhausting day pelting down the Alpine hills at a rate of knots.

A Fashion Disaster








Have you heard about the events which occurred during New York Fashion Week? It was mildly amusing to onlookers yet those who suffered the indignity of being openly mocked whilst they waited to be rescued when the freight elevator broke down, might not have found it so funny.

Where have the lights gone?

Did anyone manage to catch Channel 4’s the ‘Blackout’ documentary last night? It was tense and epic! The documentary outlined what would happen if we were to witness a full blackout, with zero electricity and un-purified water.

Straight as a Die







People are strange creatures. They do not realise how odd their behaviour is sometimes. Or maybe they do; and simply do not care. You get those who will do their very best to avoid any sort of physical contact when stationed close to unknown individuals, or just tend to have their music on as loud as possible in order to drown out the sounds around them. On the flipside of this; you also tend to get some folk who try ...

Going Underground







Waterloo Station is quite unique in the fact that it has an actual working elevator so those with mobility issues have access to and from the tube. It is not only people in wheelchairs who need a helping hand, as mothers with buggies and travellers carrying heavy suitcases find escalators extremely hard to navigate. If you are bogged down by a number of bags or have to rely on a guide dog to make sure that you are safe then ...
