MacBook Wallpaper

Today I updated my MacBook’s wallpaper. It’s not that I didn’t love my first self designed wallpaper, its just that it was old. Feel free to steal these–these are optimized for my 13″ MacBook and have 1280 x 800 dimensions.

Here’s the new wallpaper, which I took whilst on vacation in Antalya:


Three Travel Notes on Antalya

I can sadly report that I am back home in Weimar after a 3 and a half hour flight from Antalya.

Here are three quick thoughts about my trip.

First up, I flew Sky Airlines; an airline I’d never heard of before. I found the airline after Michele commented that I should take a flight […]

Boy am I glad that I…

Switched from shorts to pants while waiting to board the plane in Antalya.

I’ve gone from hot to cold. From sunny to cloudy. From clear to thunder and lightening.

More tomorrow.

Today I did nothing. And I did it very well.

Here, unabridged, is what I did today.

Yup, that was my big day. I’d originally planned on finding the beach, but it was rainy in the morning, and after the sun came out, it didn’t really stay out and […]

Three Ugly Photos from my Side Trip

Me at the Apollo in Side, Turkey

Aspendos, a Roman theater that is in remarkably good shape.

The Kursunlu Waterfall is very pretty!


Antalya, First Day of Exploration!

Happily my flight to Antalya landed on time this morning: 01.30, and 15 minutes later I had bought my visa, gone through passport control and then, since I didn’t check luggage, right through customs and out to find my waiting ride.

Breakfast as seen from above.

And then I went to bed, sleeping until […]

Surprise Ürlaub – A Vacation to the Turkish Riviera

I decided Friday afternoon that it was high time for a vacation—my favorite kind of vacation where I lie on a beach and do absolutely nothing.

My initial thoughts lay to the west with either Hoek van Holland or Lisbon. Both have excellent beaches and friends nearby. However, I discarded Lisbon because I’m trying to […]
