After two weeks of traveling by train at a maximum speed of about 120 km/h, sitting in a 230 km/h train is mind-blowing. 🤯

But I would have needed a flight if these trains didn’t exist. 🌱

This will be my accommodation for the next 15 hours. Tomorrow morning I’ll be back in Budapest (from Bucharest) and hopefully catch a train that will take me back home by tomorrow evening.

Let’s see if the air conditioning is still made to work at some point and if I have to share this compartment with someone or if I have it all to myself.

I’m still on vacation. It’s hot most days, but it’s interesting to get to know a new country and visit some places from my mother’s youth. I will write a more detailed report when I return. 😊

I just want to give a quick shout out to my online friend Žan. He’s been blogging for a long time (I still remember when we shared a gifted WordPress web host 8 (?) years ago 😄). Now he has shared some of his blogging insights and tips on his relatively new personal blog.

I’m curious when these train wagons were built, but I can’t find any source online. I only found this website with some possible wagon numbers.

I bought myself a Tilley LTM6 hat. It was expensive and still feels a bit strange to wear because nobody wears hats here. But it’s comfortable even with my big head (I always have to buy XXL caps and helmets) and it protects my face and neck pretty well from the sun. And it comes with a lifetime warranty!

Let the vacations begin! 😄

The heat lately and the heat in the coming weeks has been bugging me and getting to me so much that I bought a mobile air conditioner. It eats up a lot of electricity and will ruin my very low power consumption (< 800 kWh per year), but maybe it will help me sweat less.

So far I configured most (almost all) settings for GoBlog through a YAML file. But this is not so optimal, after all it happens sometimes that I want to change a small setting, such as the description of a post section, from my smartphone. This would work somehow via SSH, but ideal is something else. Email conversations with Andrés Cárdenas inspired me to finally start the project “settings in the database”. The first step was to make it possible to configure the mentioned post sections. This is now finally possible directly via an administration web interface! This should also be a good step in the direction of making GoBlog more friendly for other users and of course it makes my life easier as well.

This OneDrive feature to remind about pictures from x years ago is really awesome! I captured this sunset 4 years ago today.

To post something again, here are three songs I’m currently really enjoying:

If you know songs that are in the same musical direction, feel free to share. 😀
