MarkBrooks.TV Vlog Episode 12 :: It’s Valentines week. Business is great! We decided to take a break and go for brunch in the ancient city of Birgu. Then fly the drone, which got completely attacked by the birds of Birgu. There’s some great shots of the medieval city of Birgu in this video. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birgu
I did a spot of flower arranging for Valentines. Not too shabby. Irena and the kids have been wanting to get a dog this week, but we've decided against it, for now. Tempted, but Madeleine is our puppy.
The kids go to Laura's birthday party and are in awe of the Maltese magician. Then we trek out to Birgu for brunch. I'm not sure about trusting Tripadvisor in Malta now. The 2nd best café in Birgu wasn't quite what we were hoping for. It was very traditional Maltese, but needed sprucing up, to say the least.
Birgu is a beautiful ancient city, that is guarded by birds with the temperament of dragons. I'm not sure they've encountered drones before. But they did not take well to my attempts at filming the best of their city. They went nuts, circling, attacking and trying to take a piece out of the Mavic.
I don't show it in the video but, in the end, I turned the drone around and started chasing them done. This disconcerted them enough that they gave me a window to bring the drone down before they wiped it out of the sky.
It's been an interesting few weeks. My consultancy helps internet dating companies grow. Business has picked up over Valentines and we have some awesome interesting clients on board now. The perfect mix. I committed to doing 12 weeks of vlogging. Now I’m wondering what's next. I have some ideas. Watch this space, at MarkBrooks.TV.
Thanks for taking an interest.
