As I currently have a long article in the making which still needs some time to be finished I’ll just post a short update as the Lab-Box Kickstarter campaign informed all backers about its latest progress.
No reason for premature celebrations but it looks like the Lab-Box development tank will one day become reality. The makers posted a new update here and they seem to have made some progress. And they encountered new issues, so hang on…
I see this as a first light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe someday we will see a finished product. Hang on.
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.
