After travelling to rather uncommon holiday places like Ukraine, Russia, China and Iran in the last few years we wanted to get a little bit more laid back and we decided to do a small roadtrip through the baltic countries Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia in our two weeks of summer holidays in 2018. To most people these countries still are very uncommon compared to the super popular travel places in southern Europe so I’d like to share some impressions here.
After the few days in Holland we went to Germany’s Ruhrgebiet or as they call it the “Ruhrpott”. This area of Germany is famous for its open-cast mining and steelworks some of which are active to this day.
Being invited to a wedding in the “Ruhrgebiet” in Germany gave us a perfect excuse to take a whole week off.
I don’t even want to comment much on this any more but apparently they need another month before they are even able to tell us the delivery date. I bet by then they will find a new excuse why it will take another year or so.
During the Easter holidays we took – once again – a little trip by train. This time we drove to Genoa on the Italian Mediterranean coast in only six hours.
The Lab Box project has published a new blog post and they do no longer give a concrete delivery date about when they will ship the devices that were paid for almost 2 years ago.
I decided to create a second post with only the landscape and scenerey shots that I brought home from Portugal’s Algarve coast which is the most southern part of Portugal and one of the most remote places in whole Europe.
While Zurich was still a cold and dark place and after six months of winter became increasingly unpleasant we managed to get a week off and escaped to Portugal.
Lab-Box Kickstarter project posted another update and it looks like the arrival of the final product might become reality in the near future.
Once again changed plans concerning production of the parts which will take place in China completely. They state this decision was made due to several reasons. To keep this post short you can read all the stuff here.
I recently found the time to visit Florence, Italy. The main goal for this trip was to take some photos of the lovely Tuscany city and escape the cold weather in Zurich for a few days.
