  • My 2020 Year in Review
    With 2020 being over I wanted to share some info and stats on my key moments and accomplishments as well as an outlook on the plans for 2021. In addition, I also share my experience on travel during 2020 and add some info on things I've been frequently asked about by friends and acquaintances.
  • A Nomad's Coffee
    With the global coffee consumption having surpassed the 10 Mill. Kilograms mark it is considered one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world, right after tea and water. With Starbucks and similar companies serving coffee even in the most remote areas, I believe that availability comes at the cost of quality and overall taste. This is why I stopped relying on served coffee and assembled my very own set of tools for brewing the type of coffee that I like, no matter the environment I'm currently in: A nomad's coffee, no electricity required.
  • A Nomad's Workout
    Staying healthy and fit is key to success in life. Not only does regular exercising lower the risks of coronary heart disease, strokes, type 2 diabetes, cancer and other causes for early deaths, but it also helps sharpening one's mind and focus. Especially as a full-time traveller it's important to find ways that allow working out no matter where.
  • Linux on the Desktop: Part One
    I left the Linux desktop nearly 10 years ago. Now I'm trying to go back in order to escape from a closed-source environment, by investigating on possible hardware options and trying out first steps on cheap alternatives.
  • A Nomad's Camera
    As someone who's always on-the-go I get the chance to visit some of the most amazing and unique places on earth. Sometimes, my stays are long and rich in detail, other times they're short and hectic but more often than not my travels are eventful. In order to allow myself to recollect those memories, capturing them are therefor a big part of my travels.
  • Haunted No More
    Goodbye Ghost!
  • The Absurdity of Modern Tools
    "Much of the power of the UNIX operating system comes from a style of program design that makes programs easy to use and, more important, easy to combine with other programs."
  • A Nomad's Command Line
    A while ago I wrote about my computer and gave an overview of the software that I use on a daily basis, without going too much into the details of specific areas. With this follow-up I want to focus on the tools that I use and put together a collection that aren't typically part of a POSIX system.
  • Trapped on an Island: Coffee with a Moka Pot
    It's the stuff that wakes you up in the morning and transforms you from an obnoxious human being into the lovely person that you are. But what do you do when you can't simply get your daily fix from the coffee shop around the corner?
  • A Nomad's Computer
    When you're a full-time traveller you usually don't posses much and therefore don't really have to take care of many things. Apart from the usual suspects like your passport there's probably one thing that's really valuable to you: Your computer.
