Hehe yeah, I loved that place too! It was very cold and foggy there in the morning. And bad at map reading as I am, I got lost there for around 30 minutes.

Thank you Lori! I've been soaked wet today by a north sea storm though I had a lot of fun exploring the beach.  (Posted from a limited WiFi)

I just found this Ferrari F355 Challenge arcade game by SEGA while on vacation in the German Eiffel region. It was in an empty-feeling room right next to a beer café (and you know I enjoy drinking local beers everywhere I go). Sadly, the game...

As you may or may not have heard, I was away for a week to visit the German eiffel region. A low mountain area somewhat near the Dutch and Belgian border. I've hiked around a lot, took a swim every now and then, and of course drank lots of beer in the...

Hehe, I know you were kidding. It's good to see you too! One day my skin will lose it's youth and I'll accept to be 18 again.    And about Windows 10. Well, sadly Microsoft usually supports upgrading 1 'phase' only. Meaning Vista can be...

Are you running Windows 7?   I have Vista on my desktop and they are saying it wont upgrade now.  They want me to upgrade to 8.1 and it's nasty.  You cant hardly move on it and the sides come in on you and pull you completely off the...

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I'm actually 24 now, yes time sure is flying by!    And I'm using Windows 8.1 now, and am not too happy with it, for the same reasons as you said. The 'start menu' is a fullscreen menu with tiles and all sort...

Yes Lori, the sauce was a combination of vanilla sauce and hot chocolate sauce!   What is curious however, is that German whipped cream is rarely ever sweetened. So all the sweetening that wasn't in the pie itself had to come from the sauce,...

Ah, good to know..  Microsoft wanted to sell me 8.1, to do a clean install.  When I asked if they would help me if I ran into trouble putting it in, they never answered me back.

Hehe I'm WAY late commenting, but thanks for watching the video!   And the  penguins seemed pretty popular. I saw some kids next to them who were on a school quest, and were yelling PENGUIN all along (it's the same word in Japanese...

Here's a video with some smartphone footage of the Kaiyukan Aquarium in Osaka. Because everything worth viewing in aquariums is behind glass, taking photos can be a challenging task. I rarely take videos but in this case it was so much...

Cool video! I like the diver's bubbles, too.   But MY favorite would be the penguins, of course.

Thank you Lori and Rosemary!    Yes it was indeed a trip unlike any other. I don't know yet if I'll ever revisit this country. You can't help yourself but think you haven't seen the slightest of such a different country in just 2 weeks.

Just a small note that I'm on vacation to Texel (Dutch island) for a week. I'll check the internet from time to time, but nothing excessive. See you all on or after 26-9 for more ramblings and such!

Since friday I've been on a little mid-week vacation to the largest forest in the Netherlands. I can't think of much else to say about it, there's hours and hours of hiking, lots of abandoned farm shafts, and some restaurants if you search the area...

So, after some hiking through another part of the forest, which was partly inaccessible due to the risk of buried explosives from a former German ammo depot, I found that a local bar in the area had this little game corner with pool and stuff. I'm...

This week, from sunday to friday (tomorrow), I went on a vacation to Drenthe, the Netherlands. A province known for dense forests, farmers, and prehistoric dolmen. We explored the environment for several hours a day, and I got to take several pictures...

As promised here is a picture log of my vacation to Japan. I know it's been several weeks since my return but I never found the time to sort out the pictures worth showing while preventing this blog from becoming too long. Also, there are some 'geeky'...

So, as you probably expected, I'm playing a lot of Pokémon GO at the moment like the other half of the population. So what's better than to take it outside and try catching different mons on areas you didn't visit before? So, of course I tried...

The top right one is Pidgey, the bottom left photo is Jigglypuff. I'm not that active with the game though, I just enjoy the AR Photo feature and the way a game can integrate with real world locations like that!   There are these so-called 'hot...

The fish was a rainbow trout (if I remember correctly). I don't think I ate that before and I wanted to try something new. The taste was mild, no spices aside from salt, basil, and the watercress. It may've been slightly too oily for my taste...
