Disconnected 3

Since my last blog update I’ve had very little time to work on my blog. First I had a close friend from the US visiting, and then we both went to Vienna for a week. Most of the time we were hanging out, and the little time I spent at my computer was used to […]

The trouble with working from anywhere 2

This week I finally returned from my trip to Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia. I had a great time, especially in Poland, where I met some amazing people. In part, I think, because the Poles are a pretty interesting people in general. In part because I took my travelling slowly, each time staying in […]

Poland: past, present, and future 2

It has been a little over a week since I arrived in Poland. I spent my first four days in Warsaw, then three in Lublin, and right now I’m in the small and charming renaissance town of Zamosc. The trip has been a lot of fun so far, leaving me with little time to work, […]

Backpacking with new outdoor and running gear

On the road again 1

Tomorrow I’ll be leaving on a new trip. After having sat tight in Budapest for about three months, it is high time to start travelling again. It’ll be a fairly short trip and not too far away: I’ll fly to Warsaw, Poland, and from there I’ll make my way overland back to the Hungarian capital. […]

As I wrote in my last blog post, I’m in the process of scaling-up my business. This involves outsourcing some tasks to others who are better at it than I am, or who can perform them at a lower rate. As it turns out, some tasks are pretty easy to outsource. There are thousands of […]

Hunger King Budapest

Hunger King

This weekend I was showing a friend around my new home town, Budapest. Right in the city centre we encountered a pretty interesting fast food venture: ‘Hunger King’. At first I thought it was a cheap rip-off of Burger King. It used the same font and colours on its store front, and the logo looked […]

Hiking in the High Tatras (Slovakia) 2

Yesterday I returned from four days of hiking in the High Tatra mountains, Slovakia. I was fortunate enough to join a group of Hungarians who travelled there. It was four days of natural beauty, physical challenges, camaraderie, and well-deserved hot chocolate with rum (or the local speciality Tatra tea) at the end of the day. […]

Can I borrow a cup of sugar?

Can I borrow a cup of sugar? 7

This weekend I came across an amazing new initiative: Peerby. It is one in the same category as Airbnb and BlaBlaCar: an online marketplace that connects individuals who have something directly with those who need that something, cutting out the middle man. There is a big difference though: with Peerby there is no money involved. […]
