Dear Netizens

Welcome to our family homepage. We commit our thoughts and some events of our lives to this simple "webby" not only because we've learnt not to trust our feeble collective memory, but also because, in the spirit of openness, we want to share ideas, our joys and sorrows, and even plans with all our current and future friends.

Here we'd like to present less of the ordinary that is normally displayed for public viewing, and more the extraordinary that is in all "ordinaries" if we only peel away some layers.

So, thanks for coming, feel free to browse the bookshelves and no need to take the shoes off.

TRAVEL

TRAVEL IDEAS | EURO 2007 | EURO 2003 | WHITSUNDAY 2002

Psst, wanna know about home-share?

There are as many ways to travel as there are travelers. There are lots of ways to go long, go hard, and making it meaningful-all within the budget. But there's a big gap in the options offered to the serious world traveller. Read the article...you might like the idea with a working title "home-share".

Our 6 months in Europe (2007)
To have the time to get to know the oh-so seductive lifestyle and jaw-dropping scenery the old lady Europe has to offer is special.

All the opinion blogs

Some say it is the ultimate exercise in futility. Some say this is the only thing that might be worth doing. I think and debate about these big topics because I feel better about it all if I do.

The battle of the rational and intuitive
The extreme western, classical, rational, empirical, logical mind has a very sure way of finding out very little (the scientific method, from bottom up approach).

MUSIC

GUEST BOOK | EURO 2007 | EURO 2003 | WHITSUNDAY 2002

Real delicacy: home-made music!

Just like home made wines...never as good as the big labels, not necessarily getting better with age, but strangely satisfying (to the ones making it, anyway). Click the led-lights for home-recordings and song lyrics.

Our ideas that ended up as music

Get your inspiration from all around you, anywhere you can...for example, Jarbas Agnelli (music and vid on vimeo) looked at the birds on the wire and made the music the birds have composed.
