  • PARIS – FRANCE
    The most rewarding part of travelling to unfamiliar places is the sense that you have made a discovery, and those are the memories that will stick.
  • DE EEMHOF – NETHERLANDS
    It is surprising how many people look to the Netherlands to enjoy a tropical Christmas — swimming, tanning, and water-sliding
  • Competition
    If you dislike articles filled with random thoughts and uncertainties, then this one is not for you. I am trying to figure out if competitiveness is something universal. Or is competition something, we (humans) have replaced with the primal survival instincts.
  • THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE- Thailand-Burma-Laos
    Further out, the city stops, and the jungle gets thick with nature. The shops and restaurants are replaced by rainforests and rivers.
  • HOMEMADE E-SCOOTER
    Boosted have started selling their Rev and Dualtron 3 have 3600W behemoths that will do 40-miles an hour for a 50-miles (maybe). But even the modest NANROBOT D4 + 2.0 with its’ measly 2000W of motorized fun is too expensive for most of us to justify. If we want to join in it has to be a Home-Made E-Scooter.
  • WEATHER TOMORROW
    For those of us that can understand some of the science behind the information, we now have the freedom to produce our own forecasts. We have gone through some of the online weather forecasters to see which ones are flexible, which ones are thorough, and which ones are set up to be hooked into a website.
  • ISLE OF MAN – TT
    Once a year this little plateau is open to one of the most dangerous motorbike races in the world, the Isle of Man TT.
  • ROVANIEMI – FINLAND
    In the winter it is an icy amusement park, in the summer, camping and boat trips take over.
  • METRONOMY – ENDLESS
    The impression is that they have returned to the crux of what made the band differ from the rest
  • KEMI – FINLAND
    Advanced apology for the size of the pictures and the number of them, I wanted to do the place justice.
  • BAHRAIN
    It was a mystery to us why, when the country had so much land, it was necessary to reclaim land to build on. A local told us, it was due to the oil fields and the underground pipes that connect them all. In reality, the barren surface represents some of the most expensive lands in the world.
  • THIRD PARTY FIRMWARE & ROUTERS
    Start with the basics when setting up a new Wi-Fi router, there is the easy way, which will result in poor security, and then there is the slightly more involved route. Everyone has a Wi-Fi transmitter in their home, all of your neighbours, this can lead to a lot of interference. So, a good place to start is by downloading a Wi-Fi Analyser program on to your phone or computer…Many of the functions created at the open-source level are later ‘adopted’ by industrial firmware providers, by which point opensource firmware has superseded it again.
  • TALLINN – ESTONIA
    There is a distinct Bavarian feel to the environment, not only in the traditional clothes but the style of architecture and cuisine.
  • HELSINKI – FINLAND
    People, very friendly, straight to the point, no messing about mentality. They like their beer and Koskenkorva Vodka, a drink that will have you walking into a lamppost after the second glass.
  • 100 YEARS OF THE YELLOW JERSEY
    The original race in 1903 took riders on a 2,428 km tour that closely followed the contours of France’s borders. The sixty competing cyclists on the first stage alone were required to cover nearly 470Km in one day, and in an age of basic materials. The punishing race drew a large audience, and it proved that some people are just built to accomplish seemingly impossible tasks.
  • PORT OF ROSTOCK – GERMANY #ONBOARD
    There are various exercise classes, this is not a justification to binge, but it does at least make you feel less guilty for binging. The classes are good; ranging from full-heart-attack style cardio workouts to less extreme stretching. I
  • COPENHAGEN – DENMARK
    We knew that we wanted to get to the Central train station. Stations always seem to have the most fascinating architecture.
  • ST. PETERSBERG – RUSSIA
    Train stations can be either, dull and depressing, or made to look like the Avtovo Metro station. Built in 1955, the station is held up with Greek styled columns, marble walls, and illuminated with glass chandeliers. If it was not for the trains going through the middle of it, the platforms could be easily mistaken for being a palace hallway.
  • AUTOMATION AND THE RASPBERRY PI
    The Raspberry Pi is a British charitable foundation of the same name, and aimed at promoting education in computer science. The simplified computer board started selling to coding enthusiasts and now has sales of 20 million units. The unit was an attempt at making something cheap and flexible. These devices have been hacked to control robots, drones, and home automation.
  • MUNICH – GERMANY
    Munich’s Central Train Station, is huge. Built in 1849, it has had various extensions over the years, boasting over 40 lines. It is a station worth walking around and through, even if you don’t plan to go anywhere. Being such a large station there is an excellent choice…
  • BUCHAREST – ROMANIA
    We never got to visit the mountains or the Black Sea which is something that we heard is superior to Bucharest
