A Taste of Europe

Wrocław hosted a “Taste of Europe” food festival last week. The proper translation would sound more to the tune of “Europe at the fork tip” or something along those lines. But my translation fits better as that’s exactly what it was: a bunch of vendors from different European countries showing off their local cuisine. We…

The After Christmas Market 2014

My wife claims that my blog has gone the way of electric avenue with focus strictly on electric mobility. Granted, the past few posts have been rather work/hobby related, so I will try to put the personal back into this personal blog. Would a Christmas market post be too late? :) I didn’t really have…

Scandic Charging

This serves as an update to my GOVECS Charging post from December. I stopped by another charge station in Wrocław located at the Scandic hotel parking lot.

GOVECS Charging

This week marked the first time ever I charged my electric scooter outside of home or work. This actually seems strange to write but made me think and wonder about the usage of my scooter. Until now, I charged my scooter at home or work, went out for a city trip and charged back up…
