Life Mostly hiding away getting stuff done, and then in London for the weekend where I got to catch up with people. I'd hurt my knee, which sucked because 1) so much pain, and 2) I rely on regular exercise to keep me sane, especially during periods when I'm locked away working alone! But after quite ...

Copenhagen and Malmo

IMG_6946

Copenhagen It's always nice to return to a city I liked a second time, once I've been somewhere twice I'm sure I'll end up there again. Copenhagen was one of my first solo trips, that was just to see the city and not for work or some activity of some sort. The thing I missed last ...

Life Flew back from Sweden, and spent the following day in London which was exhausting, but awesome! Got to catch up with friends and see the poppies at the Tower of London before they get taken down. It was crazy busy but fantastic, a couple gave us their tickets so we go to go inside briefly. ...

Personal Burn Rate

The assortment of currencies I had with me in NK

A while ago, I read about the concept of a "personal burn rate" and at the time I worried that mine was too high. I had a well paying job, but lived in an expensive city, and a significant proportion of my income went on "stress tax" - stuff (mostly travel) that made me feel ...

Guinea pigs

Life Last frantic day in London, then some quiet time getting stuff done, and one relaxing day off! Then - to Copenhagen! Work Meetings and catching up, or maybe it's more like the last couple of weeks of rushing around is catching up with me. Didn't get as much done as I would have liked, but that is ...

A young European hedgehog
