Today I decided to try Codebase, the UK biggest startup incubator, for some co-work. They offer an hot desk option for £10 a day and a monthly option for £50 a month with unlimited access during a month. The hot desk space as you can see in the photos bellow is ample and bright but…


Me and Ines found out this new Greek restaurant near our home and decided to give it a try. We had a Greek salad and a vegetarian sandwich and both of them were amazing. Coming back for more for sure.

Canvas and cream

I cannot believe that I lived in Forest Hill for three years and never been to this cafe before. Amazing decor, great food, tasty coffee, working WiFi and plenty of space. Ticks all the boxes for an excellent place to remote work.


Yesterday I celebrated my 40th birthday by opening a bottle of 1977 vintage port. It was well worth the wait, good things take time…


I’ve passed in front of this cafe several times but never went in to check it out. Today before picking my daughter from school I finally went in to give it a go. It’s actually very good, the coffee is amazing the wifi works well and they have some nice spot to sit and do…

One of the best things I ever bought

Castelo Coffee

Filament Coffee

An small place on Clerk Street, the coffee is excellent and there is some decent food options. The environment is good to work with good music and some nice seats. The only letdown is the wifi that is a bit slow, so not great for big uploads or downloads.


A nice café with excellent cakes, great coffee and solid Wi-Fi. The only downside is it can get very crowded and noisy.

Maki & Ramen

A great new sushi restaurant that open in Tollcross. The sushi special was delicious.

Edinburgh Marathon – Finisher

  After 5 months of training, this Sunday was finally the race day. I was able to finish in 4h25m and I think for the first marathon was not a bad time. Besides finishing the race my main goal was to raise money for my daughter’s Sara playground. I managed to raise to £ 615. I…
