I moved to a new host!
No movie session and no hiking for now
Trip to Offenburg has been cancelled
2020/03/22 Cycling around silent Düsseldorf and airport
It's been one week since the beginning of an effective curfew. I go jogging essentially everyday and I see that things have changed drastically - it is nearly impossible to see a group of more than 2 people, except for families. What a country of impressively disciplined folk I'm living in.
2020/03/21 Weekend trip to Offenburg cancelled
It's hard to believe that it was less than a week ago that we went hiking with little concern. Things changed really quickly. Now I'm sitting in front of my computer, all alone, with no idea when it is going to be the next time that I'm gonna see someone in front of me except for my flatmate.
In this situation, you are probably not surprised to hear that I had to cancel our weekend trip to Offenburg, which was planned for the Easter weekend, so from April 10 to 13, over 4 days, which certainly would have been amazing. But then, I got a message from the hostel a few days back about the cancellation. Anyway even if had been open, a lot of other things around the hostel would have been closed, like this beautiful city of Strasbourg, as you can see on the photo (photo credit: Wikipedia).
2020/03/16 I moved to a new host
I used this host called Just Host, which I started using back in 2012 in order to create a website for my bicycle trip. It was not so bad, but had two drawbacks: firstly, it was extremely slow, and secondly, the subscription was over 4 years. The last extension took place in 2016, which was done automatically and I couldn't really do anything about it. This time, I was also pretty okay to pay the money for the next 4 years, but then I didn't want to continue using the super slow website. At the same time, I was also interested to know how difficult or easy it is to transfer a website to a new host. And now, as the coronavirus ravaged whole Germany and the next hike is probably going to take place some time in far future, I decided to restructure my website, with the hope that it is going to be faster.
