Foxy cup

Me and my daughter Sara went to Doodles last Monday, here is the end result:


Considerit is a new place just in front of Summerhall, specialised in donuts!!! They are all freshly done in the premises and the flavours rotate from time to time. The coffee, provided by Steampunk, it’s really good, there’s is plenty of seats, wifi is available and there’s is lots of power plugs. An excellent alternative…

New year new bike: Trek Roscoe 8

When my Kona bike was stollen in London I was limited to use my old Wheeler, and while it is a great bike for the road it’s not great for the trails and downhills. Automattic, my current company, offers the cycle scheme vouchers to its workers in the UK so I finally decided to invest…

Edinburgh New Year Day Triathlon

The best way to start 2018? Challenging yourself to do new thing! So I did the Edinburgh New Year Triathlon and it was a great experience, hope to do it in the following years!

Downtown Lisbon

After years and years of construction work downtown Lisbon is finally looking great!

Bike Station

Bike Station is the best place in Edinburgh to service your bike. Their service is great because  they actually try to repair things instead of trying to sell you new stuff, and the prices are excellent value. They also sell recycled bikes and provide apprenticeships to young people, so beside getting your bike fixed, you are…

Snip and Sip

I finally found a good hair salon in Edinburgh that knows how to handle my crazy hair. Snip and Sip is a one woman show in the heart of the Summerhall. The space is bright and cosy and Magda knows her thing and quickly found the best course of action. See the end result below.

The Counter

On a canal boat, docked on Edinburgh Quay app, The Counter must be the most original cafe in Edinburgh. It serves great coffee and delicious home baked pastries. It’s a pity the outside seating is only usable on good weather…


This year the A8C Christmas dinner was in Glasgow, and funny enough after two years living in Scotland I’ve never visited Glasgow before! I really enjoyed the city and a nice night out with my colleagues. Next day I still had some time to see a little bit of the city before popping back in…


A small cafe in the heart of Marchmont with amazing porridges, excellent avocato toasts and good coffee. The wifi is functional and there is some power plugs around. The ambient music is excellent and the staff is very friendly. Will be coming back for sure!

Summerhall Yoga

When I moved two years ago to Edinburgh I started to practice Yoga again. Because I was not practicing for some years I decided to pick up some classes in order to refresh my knowlege and get some guidance. Luckily in Edinburgh there is multiple options for Yoga practicioners , but not all of them…

Black Ivy

Tonight I was invited to the opening of the Black Ivy, a new gastro pub and boutique hotel just next door to the Bruntsfield links. As you can see by the photos below the new space looks amazing! It has a small stage and there is the promise of life music during the week and…
