Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in New Photography on Tuesday 5 March 2013

Have you ever seen something look so uncomfortable and adorable at the same time? These cute baby giraffe pictures seem like the perfect time to bring you this fun fact: adult giraffes also have incredibly low sleep needs, with most sleeping between just a few minutes to an hour a day. Most nap standing up, […]

The Hatton Hotel, Melbourne

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Travel on Thursday 14 February 2013

Melbourne’s Hatton Hotel is one of the most comfortable, inviting and restorative places to stay in one of our favourite cities. It’s a boutique hotel done right – simple elegance and quiet luxury, set in ideal location, close to the city, but far enough away to still retain a sense of peacefulness. The Hatton has […]

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Travel on Friday 8 February 2013

Wellington is famous for many reasons: wind (the city once recorded a gust of 248km/hr), having the most cafes per head of anywhere in the world, being the home of Peter Jackson and his stunning movies which include The Lord Of The Rings epics, The Hobbit, Avatar (and more) and also for their hip slice […]

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in New Music on Wednesday 6 February 2013

St Jerome’s 2013 Laneway Festival in Sydney posed a number of questions for the young, hip crowd in attendance to one of the big festivals that sits just off the edge of mainstream. Would it rain on the festival goers? Could gumboots be risked as possible fashionable items anyway? Who would hit it off with […]

Happy swimming pigs in the Bahamas

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Travel on Tuesday 5 February 2013

Living on the tiny uninhabited island of Big Major Cay in the Bahamas, these wild pigs swim in the tropical waters, happy to show off their piggy-paddlin’ skills to amazed tourists who regularly visit. The pigs swim out to yachts and boats in the hope of finding a free lunch and are surprisingly adept in the clear salty water. (Let no one mention salty bacon at all)

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Travel on Wednesday 16 January 2013

Wellington’s stunning Museum Art Hotel is one of Lost At E Minor’s favourite hotels – and not just for the luxury, comfort and setting. It comes with an underlying vibe of cheeky fun.

Miniature photography by Christopher Boffoli

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in New Photography on Tuesday 15 January 2013

Christopher Boffoli takes wonderfully creative and constructed photos of miniature scenes, with each telling a tiny, often humorous, story. The models, from railroad sets, are so good we’re convinced that artist makes a small fortune.

Te Papa: the national museum of New Zealand

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Travel on Friday 4 January 2013

Te Papa, in Wellington, is New Zealand’s innovative national museum, a modern monument to indigenous Maori culture and Kiwi heritage after the country was settled by Europeans. On a recent visit, we particularly enjoyed the array of art and design, along with the interactive components, and were (pleasantly) grossed out by the giant squid on display, while the geeky Game Master exhibition, featuring more than 100 playable video games from the world’s most influential game designers, spoke to our inner gamer.

Distorted sticky tape faces

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in New Photography on Friday 21 December 2012

Photographer Wes Naman has captured a series of faces that have been unapologetically distorted by sticky tape. Similar to a series by Douglas Gordon, and as seen in Jim Carrey’s Yes Man, all we can say is the tape in the hair and beard won’t be fun to remove.

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Travel on Thursday 20 December 2012

Lost At E Minor had the chance last week to re-visit Wellington (nb… the two founders of the site are originally from Wellington), the picturesque capital of New Zealand, and as more people are finding out, it’s not exactly one of those stuffy, pretentious capitals full of cold monuments. No. It’s far cooler than that.

The Landing Bar hosted Lost At E Minor’s Newcastle based team for a craft beer session to sample the best of the Little Creatures range.
