    Arcologies in real life at Arcosanti When your city reached it’s limits in Sim City you would start building Arcologies. Huge buildings were people could work, consume and sleep. I’ve seen lot’s of reports of buildings being developed like that. But the Italian Architect Polani actually started experimenting with this in real life over in…

    Death Valley

    Death Valley. Heard a lot about it, but didn’t expect it to be so divers.  A lot of different sceneries. Already had skipped a view items of the list. But the park is so massive that I just got to Badwater on time to see the salt plains!  What an amazing country!

I decided to make two small donations…

  • Time to start running!

    Just finished my previous post around 0200 this morning and had a bit of a light sleep. I was very excited about the run though and in a rush to get to the Amsterdam Railway station near the dam. It always crowded with people, now even more as the Damloop is the biggest running event…

  • Leaving Dallas, leaving New Orleans, Leaving the States!

    Dallas On my my third and last day in Dallas, I headed over to the Ford Center and would have loved to get a tour. Unfortunately all was sold out, but I still had a good time, playing ball on the turf on front of the building with random other sporting enthousiasts! After a quick…

    Day 20, 21 & 22 – 1 Week left, amazing Texas!

    Austin After my previous post I got ready to get over to the Rainey street. A really nice location right near to where I was staying with lots of bars and outside music. I sat down in the Banger’s Beer Garden. Specialised in sausages I had two great hot dog’s over there. Met some guys from…

    Day 18 & 19 – Finally in Texas

    After that amazing jump I went on the El Paso Texas, Odessa and then Austin. I actually thought it might be a bit of a boring ride. Thinking of western like deserts and nothing much in between. Really happy I’m also doing this drive by bike tough. Had one of my best hotel experience and one…

  • Day 12 – Indio Las Vegas

    Day 12 – Indio Las Vegas

    Actually thought I would be staying over in around Bagdad or Siberia today. There was even a Yurk for rent, but that was on the south side of Joshua Tree. That wouldn’t have helped me much further. Bagdad and Siberia actually are ghost-towns. I did not even notice I’d already driven through. So I decided…

    Day 11 – Heading East, thinking of Houston

    I met Susan Nwokedi at breakfast this morning. The day before we had an interesting talk about the Nigeria and Africa in general.

    Day 8, 9 & 10 – Monterrey and LA

      Arriving in Monterrey, I planned to grab a quick bite and then ride around town. Being along the coast I’d just had to try some seafood. The Fish Grove got recommended.
