    ArtScience Museum: Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests

    Oh I’ve really gone and neglected this space. I originally intended to update this post on my trip, but realised that I’d forgotten to bring my reference photos, and then other things (such as sleep) soon took precedence over the blog. Oh well, I’m here and trying to pull my socks up with all the backlogged photos I’ve accumulated for the past year and change! Adele and I visited the ArtScience Museum for the magical beasts that are Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests in July.

We had to join a small queue when we arrived at 1pm, and queues to enter were even longer when we left the park at about 2.30pm.

    Tokyo: Allergies, Yasukuni Shrine, Chiyoda Park

    My travel backlog is getting out of hand! This is my attempt to restart a documentation of my trip to Tokyo last March. I’d actually done up the photos for this post months ago, but accidentally deleted them thinking that I’d made a backup… I did not make a backup. Why do I always do this to myself. 😩 Anyway, this day in Tokyo was pretty memorable for me. I don’t often fall sick on vacation, but it just so happened that I’d gotten struck by something that led my allergies to go on overdrive, probably due to the turn down service at our new hotel the night prior. It…
