Once again at Liepnitzsee

More than once I mentioned here that one of the things that I like the most about Berlin is the easy access to nature in a fair distance. Especially Liepnitzsee that, in spite of its surprising cold water, always worth the visit. Last weekend I went with my wife and some friends to this lake again, this time to spend the night in a camping there as well.

There are small things about camping that if you don’t take some time to enjoy it, you might miss it.

The Journey from Berlin to Copenhagen on Bikes

On Friday, April 19th, Luísa and I started our journey from Berlin to Copenhagen by bike, on our first bike tour. We took 8,5 days to get there, sound and safe, and we crossed some fantastic paths and landscapes. This is a well-known bike route and we discovered later that it’s part of a bigger EuroVelo, which starts in Malta and finishes in the North Cape – or the other way around, the EuroVelo 7.

As the weather gets warmer, people tend to hang out more often and Berlin offers many options of bars, pubs, and biergartens to have a great time with your friends. Doesn’t need to be in summer though, the first warm day of spring already takes people out of their homes.

There’s a bike trip coming soon

Back in 2008/2009, I was living in a small town called Tapes where I would study Environmental Management for a year. There I meet some colleagues that presented me to what I’d later know as Bike Touring. At that point in time, the ideas I was discussing with my friends were something like: we should travel to Uruguay by bike; should we cross to Argentina maybe? Well, what I can say is the destination now is a different one.

Lanzarote Last Summer

Almost one year later I’m going to write about an incredible island that Luísa and I visited last summer. Apart from the fantastic nature and cinematographic landscapes, Lanzarote is a Spanish island which means: great food. It was a short trip although well-planed which gave us a superb pleasure time there.

WordPress, here I’m again

Four years ago I decided to move from WordPress to Jekyll and host it on Github pages. It worked well for a while, however every time I wanted to write a blog post, it always had something to fix – ruby dependencies, Jekyll outdated plugin, you name it. I usually write here for two reasons: 1) it’s relaxing somehow and I use to organise/write down some idea; 2) to improve my writing skills; my experience with Jekyll wasn’t the best. It’s a personal opinion of course.
