Roadtripping Austria

Visiting old friends is best!

As a friend started up new in Vienna and actually has been a colleague to a friend of my guys at the shared appartement, we hit for a roadtrip to Vienna. Heading from Reutlingen to Salzburg via Linz to Vienna! A town with lots and lots of historical place and the right amount of hipsteresque including some decent coffee.

wordpress as a multisite instalaltion

The number of wordpress installations increased and the scaleability by doubeling the number of installation is limited.

So I switched from single site to the multisite environment of wordpress by following some web instructions.

After failing in exporting and importing on the nextgen gallery part I finally succeeded by simply editing the file path for the galleries by search and replace. Yes. I did. This.

Checking out Hobby Himmel

The „Anstiftung“, previously known as Anstiftung Ertomis decided to start a collaborative online platform for open workshops of any kind.

So we met up at Hobby Himmel a professionally run tech shop style format of an open workshop. By beeing professional they do care about OEE or availabilty of parts unlike the other hobbyist workshops as ours in Tuebingen. But to finance this approach, usage is paid by hours / usage and not by a standard club membership (although two different types of flatrate is available).

Fun fact – Hobby Himmel is just a test to proof everyone wrong: „A professional tech shop in Germany is possible!“

After some month without travelling I headed out to Paris! Thanks to the TGV and Deutsche Bahn Stuttgart – Paris is about 4 hours without any security checks (plane) or traffic jam (car).

Lovely town, awesome food and simply an old friend to visit.

Okay…Japan in autumn

Hi there.

Sometimes in life you are lucky! And this time it was me. I got couple of days leave left and I will go back to Japan. A second time. Heck yeah!
And it will be in autumn. A lot of red leaves, feels like maybe Canada and a lot of goood food ^.^

So, see you there!

Japan, Japan, it’s all about Japan!

Every now and then – I head to Japan to visit family, friends and some other bunch of people 🙂 This year I had the chance to leave for mor than a month and gladly I travelled a lot!

At first, I travelled to Shikoku, visited marvelous cities like Kochi, Shimanto and the beaches and continued to Naruto. Last days of this trip had been Nao-Shima (yes – pun intended!) and Kurashiki.

Last but not least a friend and I travelled from Kansai (Osaka, Kyoto) to Kanazawa, proceeded to Kanto (Tokyo & Kamakura) and ended up again in Kansai at Nara.

Couple of days with my family – and I left again for Europe! 🙂


northern countryside

Japan had been a blast, but it had been quite hectic to be here and there. So I just went for some days on the countryside filled with hard work! We turned a full yard of the second year compost with showels and wheelbarrels. But anyhow, on the countryside you might find some high quality food! 🙂

It’s Japan. As usual. 

As every year – I’m in Japan. For now I will spend five weeks in and I’m pretty much enjoying this stay!

Family is in good condition and Japan’s economy looks more or less stable.
