It's no secret that my blog is more about images than words. So no better way to close down this year with 12 months in pictures. A big thanks to all my loyal followers, dear friends and occasional visitors for a beautiful year on Zephyr-Files again! I really love all your comments, e-mails and suggestions and will definately Blog On in 2012!

Big frustration for a lot of travellers; so many sockets in so many countries. Reminds me of the whole VHS, Betamaxx, Video2000 situation in the 80's. That one was a big frustration to me, since it had no solution. But all these different sockets have one thing in common. They can be tackled by this handy little tool below. I remember we stole ours from our Slovenian friend David in Paris, back in 2001. And for that we thank him!

Remember that great video "Room Service" by Thomas Knights I posted back in June? The follow up has just been released and is a lust for the eyes again. As you may have noticed Part One made it to Meatlovers Mondays many times since June and I bet I will feature some of the footage of this follow up in future Meatlovers Mondays. This one was created by Thomas Knight and Jodie Harsh.
Today we went to Beeld & Geluid*. Our national archive of television and radio is housed in one of the most colourful buildings of our country. Inside is a beautiful museum (although museum isn't really a good term, so they call it Experience) in which you can see and hear loads and loads and loads and loads of old Dutch tv-shows. Great day! Back with square eyes from watching hours of Big Brother Season One, back in 1999 when Reality Tv was still boring to watch and therefor so entertaining.
*) Vision & Sound
And as a bonus: two gays on a "bakfiets":
Sick and tired of skiing in neon-pink ski-pants, the latest equipment and motherfucking beats during après-ski? This is your chance to escape to the past! Skiing during the last week in Kandersteg, a sweet little village in Switzerland with a small ski-area, will take you back to the Belle Epoque. Wooden skis, traditional clothing and food that you wished they still cook on a daily base. More information here.

Since 2011 was the year of the transgender model, I am glad Mariano Vivanco decided to do it the other way around. Masculin models as Playmates. Hurray for this beautiful shoot he did for Candy Magazine! (credits in video below)
