Dear visitor, as you may have noticed I haven’t been adding new content to this site for quite some time now (most recent post is from December 2016). That’s not because we don’t “go out and see the world” any more – because we do. The main reason is that other interests have taken over; mainly photography and a new website! This means that I’m going to decommission this website over the next couple of months (end of 2018 at the latest). Selected valuable posts I’ll probably transfer to the new website, or maybe a blog post on my main domain. (GPS) Tracks will continue to be available on GPSies and/or WikiLoc.

Thank you for your visits, we hope it has been worth your while :)
