#monthinminutes – February 2017

On global scale, month of February started with travel-ban chaos and “Bowling Green massacre” in US, ended with Brexit bill being passed to House of Lords without guaranteeing EU citizen rights to stay in UK.

On Beard scale it was an exciting month of interesting projects that included travels to cold and snowy Estonia and wandering in the woods. Also filming a vlog in Barbican. And on top of everything else – Holiday in Gran Canaria and a hike to North of the Island.

#monthinminutes – January 2017

When it comes to Christmas trees, January is particularly sad – you know… in December they are being brought in, made feel important and special. Then come January, they are out on a street. It’s a disaster, very sad…

On broader scale – January 2017 introduced the beginning the new era of Trump’s alternative facts and people finally got some clarity in regards of Brexit… Yes still happening…

But in this odd soup of sad Christmas trees and alternative facts, the world keeps turning and we are appreciating spending time with our friends, going to the movies and theatre and checking out luxury yachts. We also find that it’s equally important to surround us with artsy foxes, show solidarity with 100 000 people on Women’s March. And continue travelling and exploring…

Well… long story short – this is our January 2017:

#monthinminutes – December 2016

With Britain still being decisively indecisive of how to actually tackle the whole situation called Brexit (you know… only 6 months have passed after all) and US president elect tweeting all sorts of mixed messages left and right, one thing remained certain – Christmas and 2017 were coming.

So, our lives rolled on in holiday spirit – for the first time in ever we even got a tree!

Full December antics are now up on our YouTube channel.

London Christmas Lights 2016 (part 2)

Beards are now off to celebrate Christmas with loads of food and merry times.
But before we do, here’s a part 2 of London Christmas lights – featuring Backyard Cinema in Elephant and Castle, Christmas market at South Bank, bio fuel energized lights at North Bank and Christmas tree on Trafalgar square (all the way from Norway)

Btw, did you know that North Bank was the first area in London, to get electricity?

For now – Take care of yourself and each other! Take care of your beards! Have a very Merry Christmas! Olge muhedad! And see you in 2017!

London Christmas Lights 2016 (part 1)

Christmas season in London is in full swing and Christmas lights are shining bright.
We got our share from Oxford Street, Carnaby Street, Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Covent Garden (and Seven Dials).

And if you are not able to come to twinkling London town, check out the 360 views!

We’ll be roaming around London soon again to capture the lights on Strand, Trafalgar Square and South Bank, so watch this space.

Launching new vlog format #monthinminutes – November

At the moment we are living in the World that is post-Brexit vote and pre-Trump US.
We therefore decided to start documenting little snippets of our daily lives to see how (if at all) these two game changing factors influence upcoming months in our lives.

First one is now up on YouTube.

Bonfire Night at Battersea Park

5th of November is known as Bonfire Night. We went out to Battersea Park to get some insight on the day itself and enjoy some pretty amazing fireworks.
