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.

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.

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a while, however every time I wanted to write a blog post, it always had something to fix – ruby dependencies, Jekyll outdated plugin, you name it.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.

I must say that find such a warm summer in Europe was a surprise for me. To be completely fair, these last two summers hadn’t not the normal average temperatures and it’s fair to say that even for people that are living here longer than me this weather wasn’t expected. This is not small talk and I’m not here to warn of global warming, it’s just a note to put you in context about why I’m so happy that around Berlin has an incredible number of swimming lakes.

I have being struggling to find a new hobby other than anything related to computers & programming. First I got a Kindle – it was a gift actually – and got really excited about it. I started reading some romances and fantasy books until the day I bought a technical book and then suddenly it looked like working instead of leisure time. So I started jogging. I still do eventually. Jogging was pretty intensive in the beginning when I was making 5km in less than 30min five days a week! 💪I got an injury on my left foot and left jogging behind for a couple weeks. It’s still something I like to do in my spare time. Although now I’ve my new road bike and I can’t think of anything else to do on my spare time other than exploring Berlin cycling.

I have moved again. This time to Germany. Luísa and I are now living in Berlin. We arrived earlier this year, in March, after eleven hours on a train from Italy with our two cats aboard. I have some updates.

So many things happened since my last post here. I keep telling myself to update this blog more often but, as you can see, this was not possible. However, I’ll keep trying.
