The Hotel in Dubai

My aircraft is waiting..

Long queues at KLM check-in at Schipol again. 

The new robotic self-service baggage handling system at KLM’s check-in at Schipol is very clever and needs fewer staff – but causes long tailbacks.  Think again KLM!

I just love Soundworks…

I just love Soundworks.

Sound……often more important than what we’re seeing.

And……..this film, I-Origins (look out for misspelling in titles) which didn’t, I think, get a lot of attention is an excellent film, sound and all…
