#rp14: Impressions of Day 2

The second day was not so amazing, for some reason most of the talks were a bit bland and boring. My highlights though were an introduction to the simplicity of an Arduino (basically a chip, an oscillator, a power supply and a USB connector) and a talk by Raul Krauthausen, a physically disabled founder of […]

#rp14: First day impressions

I am really tired now. It was a very interesting day on a very relaxed conference. I heard a great talk, some good talks and learned how to build an universal phone charger. Up next are some pictures of the day. 

Ireland! Day Twelve! Flower Power in Belfast!

After ten days in Derry we kind of had the feeling that we did everything that was accessible to us without a bike or car. We did some stuff even several times already (Castlerock!). And when we first went to Belfast, the weather was shitty and the city was just too big to be conquered […]

Ireland! Day Eleven! Not much!

This is a short one. The night before we had our farewell dinner with our host at nice grill box restaurant that served really good Irish steak. The next day we went to see Coleraine together with Valentina, as it is easy to get there by bus or train from Derry. We strolled around and […]

Ireland! Day Ten! The Shire!

After having seen the sea for several times we wanted to some of the green forests that were promised by the guides. We took the bus down to Strabane and from the the rambler tour bus to Gortin Glenn Forest Park, a wildlife preservation park that features several paths to have a casual walk.

Ireland! Day Nine! The Town of the Whiskey!

After the exhausting pedaling the day before we decided to do something quiet, slow and indoors. So we headed to Bushmills, the place where the famous distillery is located. They had a lot of these Potemkin facades with painted on shops and stuff. I read that the government put these up during the G8 summit […]

Ireland! Day Eight! Bicycle, Bicycle, Bicycle Race!

We soon realised, that  we won’t get to the good places on foot or by just relying on public transport. I stumbled across a website on the interwebs promising a bike tour for “Derry Day Trippers”. It sounded just right for us, inexperienced tourists, a simple day tour on bikes to see Ireland’s most northern […]

Ireland! Day One! Amsterdam!

We went to Ireland. We just felt like getting too much sun in Berlin. We needed to act fast. So we booked flights to visit our acquaintance Valentina in Derry/Londonderry. But as most of you, unknown readers of this site, know, every trip you’ll ever do has to begin in Amsterdam. Cops and wooden shoes. Amsterdam!
