It's on! Arriving @ Leicester

As I'm writing this on my iPhone, I'm ready to fall asleep any moment. After partying on a last night out until 5 AM, I was finally on my way, travelling the world.

First stop: Leicester for NSConference.

PS. Me and the wigger cap, it's complicated.

Last day at work

Strangely enough, my final day at Apegroup is over. I'm not sure if I have been unusually aware today, or if it's just a coincidence, but somehow I left with a feeling that there's so much happening at ape right now, that I will miss out on during the coming months.

On the brighter side I got some kind words and this awesome iOS Nomad cap! Big props to my man Gunnar!

So now it's only one day left! Time to do a final set of laundry and start cleaning out the apartment. The end is nigh.

Shopping time!

After realizing I couldn't get a Scottevest in time for my trip without paying incredibly expensive shipping & taxes, I went out shopping for some travel clothes. Much to my delighted surprise, I found this incredible bargain on Stadium!

Not only does this jacket hold my iPad Air in its pockets, it's also lightweight, wind- & waterproof and I got it for ≈40€, 30% of its original price!

While at Stadium, I also got a nice, travel friendly polyester T-shirt and a gym bag. Then I got this surprisingly comfy synthetic sweatshirt from H&M.

All in all, I think I have all the necessary clothes for my trip now. I'm lacking the super expensive merino wool stuff, but I'll buy that later if cotton and synthetics just can't keep up. Now it's time to try pack all my stuff together in my backpack before I head out for what probably will be my last night out in Stockholm before the trip!

That thing called physical marketing

Rocking the iOS Nomad shirt I got today from Spreadshirt! Just need to come up with a logo and design for a business card before I have my physical marketing set.

I'm really pleased with how the shirt turned out. Great quality on both the fabric and the print itself. Nothing like the cheap sheets you print and iron yourself. Only issue was the size being a tad too small, so I guess I'll order a size L next time!
