A lovely photo I found in my Instagram backup from June 2012, the old train from Odder, nicknamed Oddergrisen or the Odder pig, arriving at Aarhus Central Station. This train is no longer in use, having been replaced by newer train, that itself is no longer in use, to be replaced later this year by the new light rail system.

Found my old photos that I uploaded to twitter via my own image host I had on AWS back when that was a thing, before Twitter supported their own photo uploads, and it was super nice seeing those old photos again. In the same place I also found a backup of my Instagram account from 2011 to 2014 and I notice that I took and posted a lot more photos of just random stuff back then then I do now. Oh and the filters look somehow a lot better, probably because the cameras were so much worse, and now they are a lot more subtle in their fixes.
Or maybe I feel like the photo has to be both perfect and worthy of others time, when in truth I should maybe care less about that and more about just posting random stuff from my life right now, so future me can look at it and relive those moments, or just wonder what the hell past (current) me was thinking.

Found a place I can buy a “long coffee” for €0.15 and it tastes good. Can’t really ask for more.

Going to import my WordPress blog (which into I imported my old Tumblr) and my Twitter archive into a hosted micro.blog microblog with cross posting. Feel that would be simpler then what I have now. Just need to get back to my computer when this vacation is over to do it.

Last day at my girlfriend’s grandparents villa near Lakatnik. Having my last Turkish coffee, it’s very strong but not sour at all. Later today we take the train to Sofia. Adding some photos from around the villa. It’s so quiet here.

We went on a lovely 3 hour hike near the village Gara Bov. We reached 950m height and the view was lovely despite the fog. Now having coffee at some roadside shop and waiting for our ride back to the villa.

Winter trip to Bulgaria, day 1

Landed in Sofia. The train to the airport and flight to Sofia went great. The temperature is warmer then expected. Stani’s mom picked us up at the airport. On the way into the city we noticed that there was police everywhere, and after some googling we learned that Angela Merkel is visiting the city today. Something to do with Bulgaria being the president of the council of the EU for the next 6 months. Next step is having some coffee and then drive into the mountains where we will stay for some days at Stani’s grandparents. We are hoping for a lot of snow.

Almost ready for our week vacation to Sofia, Bulgaria. We just need to pack our backpacks and get the cat to the cat sitter and we are ready for the night train to CPH. 🛫🇧🇬
