Conferences aside, I don’t travel much. But when I do I seem to like doing it so that in a few days I get enough of it for some time. I will be on the road, or in the air, the next 10 or so days. Two weddings, the first in Bulgaria the other in Switzerland, an important birthday celebration in Switzerland, and an appointment with authorities back where I (still) spent most of my life, for the making of a new passport. They hopefully won’t invalidate my old passport next week because I cannot wait until they ship the new one. In the age of hopping over airports of cities to get anywhere, this entails boarding eight aircrafts. The busy week also means that I will sleep in seven different beds. This is assuming that LOT Polish Airlines will find my booking, which so far is nowhere to be found in online check-in and self check-in at the airport. Otherwise I will have to improvise. On a side note, I look forward to a time when I will not have to turn off mobile data just because I leave the borders of a country, at least within Europe. Seriously, policymakers and industry: get this done, it is long overdue.


I stopped at the following places: Kuopio airport, Helsinki airport, Warsaw airport, Bucharest airport, RIN Hotel airport, Piata Constitutiei Bucharest, Varna bus stop, Hotel Marina City Balchik, Botanic Garden Balchik, Berlin airport, Zurich airport, Zurich main station, Arth Goldau train station, Bellinzona train station, Locarno train station, Ascona, Waltenschwil, Wohlen train station, Aarau train station, Olten train station, Bern train station, Murten, Sugiez, Fribourg train station, Riga airport.

Some of them more than once.
