The Museum Art Hotel in Wellington

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. Take this example: the beautiful motorbikes on display in the lobby/gallery are regularly taken out for a quick spin by owner, Chris Parkin.

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.

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.

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.

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in New Photography on Friday 7 December 2012

With selfies, Instagram and duckfaces showing no signs of relenting, The Capes Times newspaper in South Africa took a different approach to telling their readers how they get their stories straight from the horse’s mouth via a first-hand accounts.

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Travel on Thursday 29 November 2012

The Terrace Bar in Newcastle, about two hours north of Sydney, is a new small bar and alternative arts/underground music venue with the feel of a San Francisco divebar. A wide variety of craft beers and famous local Hunter wines are available, while local and visiting must-see acts perform in the venue’s intimate gig room. The atmosphere is cool, relaxed, and different to most nightspots in the city – think less meatmarket, less hot TV screens, and more vibe, hipster-chic.
