This post is a collection of things I liked online this month. Grab a cup of tea (and you know…some scones and cream, if you’re so inclined) and sit down to have a read – who knows. You might like them too.
Since becoming more active on Twitter and Facebook, I’ve started to discover even more interesting tidbits around the web than I would usually. I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve come across in May here with you.
I visited Scotland on my very first overseas trip back in 2005. It was winter and I did a three day bus tour of the highlands and stayed in a pretty B&B in central Edinburgh. This awesome HD video, shot on a Canon 5D, brings it all vividly back.
Aracely and Jason from 2Backpackers.com make awesome, professional looking travel videos. Since I’m off to South America in (count them!) 16 days, I’ve been re-watching all their videos and catching up on their crazy adventures trekking on volcanoes.
I’ve discovered a fair bit of new music this month, loading up my iPod for my upcoming trip. My fave find of the month is Pat LePoidevin.
I first read about Pat LePoidevin on Mike and Ashley’s blog, Traveled Earth. I loved his song Highway Houses and quickly bought his album for the bargain price of $10 CAD.
I’ve also been enjoying new albums from Stevie Nicks, The Waifs, as well as discovering the back catalogues of Metric and Cut/Copy.
The amount of RSS feeds I’m subscribed to has exploded this month! The posts below are some I particularly enjoyed.
Food and wine in Paris
I’ve been experimenting with chai recipes lately. Until I can dig up one I was given at a cooking class in India a few years ago, this chai recipe from TheKitchn.com is pretty good.
