Green Bottle Tree – Travel, Food, Design and Inspiration

Green Bottle Tree website is a work in progress, still trying to find its direction.  The format and appearance will have to wait even longer, even though I shudder every time I see how little this site looks like the slick, classy one in my head.

There are currently six pages: Home; Travel; Food; Design; Lifestyle; About.

Travel has categories with countries/places I have visited and written practical listings for. There is usually a mixture of general and specific information included.  All information is purely from my experiences and I have never been sponsored or asked to write about anywhere in particular.  All comments and opinions are purely my own and any inaccuracies are entirely through my misunderstandings.

Food is largely connected to Travel in that a huge part of my enthusiasm for travel is in trying new ingredients.

Design sounds more creative and knowledgeable than it is.  A recurring theme within my photographs is architectural and textile details along with patterns and shapes.  I have also started buying souvenirs from my travels that either appeal to me for their design or as ideas to incorporate into my home. This page, design lite, and the posts within are to share those ideas and photographs.

Lifestyle is a concept that I feel a bit uncomfortable with, but begrudgingly I accept that it is the best way of summing up what I want to publish within this page.  Lifestyle is my forum for ideas, mostly inspired by my travels, to incorporate into everyday life.  (This is why I dislike “lifestyle”, it has a slightly patronising suggestion, or maybe that just comes from how I’ve tried, badly, to explain what I mean)

About is probably even more self-explanatory than the other pages so I’ll not trouble myself to find an exciting way to express the contents of that page.
