I have arrived in Belgrade, capital of Serbia. The reason I drove straight trough Croatia is to get here in time for the Hackaday Belgrade Conference. In the same time I will also try to get some grasp of the Belgrade lifestyle. The Hackaday Belgrade Conference is a one day event on hardware and software applications and the hacking involved to get there. It’s organised by the website Hackaday, which I like quite a lot for my daily dose of hard-core technology. I liked to attend this conference during my trip to at least stay a little bit connected to my field of work. Continue reading “Visiting Belgrade for a geeky conference”
Ljubljana, Belgrado and the road in between

Exploring the Julian Alps with Johannes
After spending two nights at Lake Bled it was time to pick up my friend Johannes at the Ljubjana airport. Johannes had an early flight, which meant that we still had the whole day ahead of us. After stocking up for the next couple of days we headed to Lake Bohinj where we would be spending a couple of days.
A beautiful drive trough the mountains brought us there and on the first day we already hiked to the Savica waterfall. At first we were a bit misguided and thought a lousy rapid was the waterfall, but just before we wanted to head back we found out the actual waterfall was still some more hiking and a steep climb further.
To all good things come an end and after the pancakes with Eva and the kids I continued my way to Hallstätter see, an Austrian lake from the picture books. Situated between the mountains and with the picturesque town Hallstätter at it’s shores. I took my bicycle and cycled along the lake. In the evening I wildcamped along the lake and prepared my food on a campfire.
