What kind of madness would inspire someone to plunge into icy water on the edge of an active volcano? A combination of simple FOMO, peer pressure, and the inevitable ‘because it’s there.’ And also perhaps because, like banging your head against a wall, it feels so good when you stop.

Hot Cross Bunnies

We’ve just got over the festive season shenanigans, and soon the ubiquitous Valentine’s hearts will be taken down, but just when you think it’s safe to go back to the mall, the bunnies and Easter eggs take over. It’s time to cut and run. Plan to go somewhere awesome for that Easter break.
