Saw some cats in Sofia.

Christmas vacation 🎄 Quick stop in Hamburg for some glühwein 🥴 and then onwards to Sofia ☃️

In about 7 weeks I’ll be picking up this bad boy (of a hearing aid). The marketing department came up with a great name for it as well.

All I Want For Christmas is America

This is great 🎄

Just signed up for the 160km distance of the DGI Hærvejsløbet cycling race next summer.

First MTB race

Did my first MTB race on Sunday. The Carl Ras MTB Challenge. I did the 25km route. It was super nice and I’m very happy with my time of 1:35. Definitely doing more mountain bike races from now on. It was super foggy and chilly in the morning but thankfully it let up as the race started and we got very beautiful and warm autumn weather. Unfortunately I dressed for the cold foggy weather so I was a sweaty mess at the goal line.

Today started out sunny and warm and is ending now with thunderstorms that, having not been on the weather report, I’m not prepared for at all. I went to work wearing shorts and t-shirt. Oh well, it’s fine, it’s only water after all. Work was good, we made good progress on the Thing I’m working on. Questions were answered and user-interfaces were built.

Took the long ride home from work today. It was super nice, had never cycled in that area before. Met some Icelandic horses too.

We took a walk today and passed upon Leftside. Leftside is this awesome part of Northside Festival where everything is free and people (though mostly the sponsors) bring beer, wine and snacks to share with everyone else. You also need to cross the river to enter.

Thanks for the past 5 and half or so years, Valtech. It’s been a pleasure.
