Dear Mister Typewriter

Have you ever written on a pure mechanical typewriter? It is a nice but loud experience. And you should know what you want to write before you hit the first key!


Fading Memories

Nearly a decade ago, I visited Mainau, the Island of Flowers, in the beautiful region of the Lake Constance. Expecting to see colourful flowers, a house of butterflies and a greenhouse, I was surprised to find something… surreal.


Reflection on “The Why Are You Here Cafe”

A friend recommended “The Why Are You Here Cafe” by John Strelecky. He teased me with ‘Must read, but be careful, this book will change your life’, so how could I say no. Actually, I am not much of a reading person, but I thought that I could manage to read a book of 144 pages.



CQ de what? Welcome to the geeky world of ham radio 🙂 A short introduction to a technical hobby!


Little Things to Save the Planet

100 Things

A little while ago, I was looking for inspiration for little and simple, but creative and selfmade birthday presents. On google page 4 or 5 – the part of the internet you enter when you are a bit desperate – I came across a website called [↳] The Art of Manliness. Some of the selfmade presents were funny, but a pinned post at the side rather caught my attention.


It’s Sunday Morning, 10 a.m.!

Tell me, what are you doing on a Sunday morning at 10 a.m.? It might be a little bit weird to start my very first blog post with a question. What do people do during a normal Sunday morning? Do they go to church? Are they on their way to a football / sports game? Or maybe meet friends at a brunch? Nothing of that is what I do. I go to the Brussels Writing Meetup!
