Knight Moves

The icon on Lisbon Metro train doors and Martim Moniz station decoration

The doors of Lisbon Metro not just warn you about leaning but also highlight the risk of being trapped by closing doors. The Martim Moniz station is decorated with knights and one of them is used to illustrate that icon. This station is called after the noble knight who sacrificed himself by lodging himself in the doorway, preventing the defending Moors from fully closing the door of São Jorge Castle.

MINI Cooper Made for Me

It was a 5-years-long waiting for MINI to hear my thoughts (as they did in c1rca) and make the Cooper I’d buy. Not just buy but also adore, love, respect, be proud of and drive like I’m riding a dream. Here it is — coming soon MINI Cooper Countryman. Besides it’s new design and perfect body it has normal amount of doors. MINI fans can blame me I don’t feel the spirit, banish Countryman out of Cooper family — I don’t care. I just want to ride this perfect six-speed manual gear box beauty!

Just because it’s MINI, the ads are wonderful. I’ll spoil the joy a bit offering you to watch Countryman ad prior to teaser of that car.

Portugal Pro

It’s almost a year since I’ve visited Portugal. I can’t forget this country and want to come back to comfy streets of Lisbon, feel +20 °C in December, walk by bank and finally buy that t-shirt with tram #28 on it. I didn’t think that I want it so much until Tonya Shoo asked me in facebook: “Hello! I’ve noticed you’ve been to Lisbon. We are going there too, would you please recommend anything?… I’ve already read about Vino Verde.” I wanted to write something brief and clear, but tough luck ;)

In Rome

The idea to celebrate my 26th birthday in Rome was perfect: we didn’t succeed in robbing the city in 4 days (we’re not Etruscans, you know) but we paid attention to it’s masterpieces, wine, asti, pastas, pizzas and lasagnes. Almost forgot: there was a lot of ice cream!
