I travel a fair bit for work, and this is where I write articles about it.

I’m still alive

I’ve been travelling a lot of late, combo that with a build up of work in the office, I’m a bad blogger.

Hopefully after this current trip, I’m sitting in Sydney Airport waiting for a flight currently, things will settle a bit and I can start catching up on the happenings…

I just downloaded Buddhify after watching the video, looks gorgeous and serves a very obvious purpose. Hopefully I can tell you how much more centred I am tomorrow.

Mistobox Brew Guides

I recently purchased an Aeropress for when I’m travelling for work, I just got sick and tired of terrible hotel room coffee and it’s pretty easy to brew up something decent with an Aeropress…but there was a step I was forgetting…

After starting your timer, “bloom” the grounds by pouring 100 grams (3oz, or enough to cover the coffee) of the filtered water just off boil. This step allows the grounds to saturate with water, forcing out gases and priming the coffee for the brewing process. To help this process, use a spoon to lightly stir the grounds and water to ensure all the grounds have been saturated.

Apparently the ‘bloom’ can make quite the difference.

Qantas offers Grange at airport lounges

Two whites wines and six reds are currently available – including a 2011 Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2009 Wolf Blass Platinum Label Shiraz, Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz and Penfolds Grange.

Prices range from 800 points for a taste of 2010 Penfolds Reserve Bin Chardonnay up to 6,500 points for a half glass of ’07 Grange or ’96 Hill of Grace.

I could be tempted to blow out 6500 points on the Grange…
