Last year before I went on holiday to Portugal I had the opportunity to give a talk at the Quantified Self 2017 Conference in Amsterdam. I decided just the night before to talk about how much I use my phone (or better how much I shouldn't use it!). The wonderful folks over at QS Labs created a page with all the videos with transcripts. I've embedded my video below:
As I've been doing for the past 7 years now, I made a movie out of all the 8:36pm pictures I took this year. It's embedded below from Vimeo:
If you can spot yourself, thanks for being part of my life this year! It's been great fun and I'll take some time to update some of the projects I've worked on as well.
This summer I spend 2 weeks in Italy together with Chantal. We started off in Rome, spending our time in Trastevere. We visited all the main tourist attractions, because I hadn't visited Rome before. Time passed by pretty quickly and we traveled to Florence by BlaBlaCar. After a day of traveling, it's great to jump in a pool!
Florence is an amazing city, especially when you can watch the sun set over the city, the food is good and if you dive a bit into Italian culture you'll find hidden gems! Next up was San Gimigniano, a little town with lots of towers. We stayed in an agriturismo for 1 night, I cannot recommend this enough if you are somewhere in Tuscania. We visited Pisa before going to La Spezia, which would be our take off point for the main goal of our trip: Cinque Terre.
Cinque Terre is series of villages at the waterfront of Liguria, and I'd like to show you one image for every village:
