Technical museum

We continued our trips in Bistra. Now a technical museum, it used to be a monastery. Founded in 1225!

What I loved are the wooden models of old Slovenian cottages, granaries, and hayracks.

The highlights, however, are the cars.

Well, we decided not to go to Garda this year but rather to explore what's in the neighbourhood. So we started with Arboretum, where an exhibition of whales took place.

The crazy clouds (slightly exaggerated by Gimp) looked ... heavenly.

A new pendant

If I were younger or ... different ... I'd probably have the logo of 30 Seconds to Mars tattooed. But since I'm not, I've only got a pendant :-)

I actually had the wooden piece laser-cut and then painted it black.

And no, I don't care too much about symbolism, I just really like the band and the shape.

That's what friends are for

Well, no, friends are here for all the other reasons. But... if they give you a hand and help you finish a project you started a while ago, I'm not complaining.

So, finally, I have new wooden floors on my tiny balcony!

Time for a longer update

1. The conference that I co-organised was a huuuge success with some unforgettable moments.

Photo not by me. I was enjoying dinner :-)

2. I learned that physicists are very discreet people. And I'm going to be discreet as well, so no photos :-)

3. I've rock-climbed for the first time in over 10, probably 15 years. It felt soooo good to feel the rock again.

That's not me. But I did it as well.
4. I've paddled in a single kayak for the first time in over 10 years. It felt a bit wobbly at the beginning (as I'm used to heavier inflatable kayaks) but so much fun! I don't have any photos as I kept my camera/phone far away from water.

5. Museum of Optical Illusions is quite trippy.

6. Did I mention that Escape Rooms are great fun?

A loose screw

A loose screw ... or a lot of them.


When tidying up the workshop/garage we found several boxes of all sorts of screws. A couple of hours later, (almost) all the screws were (almost) sorted.

Now I need to use them.

My absence is excused...
