It's been over 2 years since I decided to start a new, nomadic life. I had the idea of blogging about this experience as it happened, but not only I am incredibly lazy when it comes to writing, most of the time I have been too busy just enjoying this lifestyle!

The TL;DR version of these last 2 years:

  • Lounged a bit in Ireland after leaving work, went on a great road trip along the West coast.
  • Lived in Nice 3 months, back in the same house I lived between 2009 and 2010.
    • During that time, my dad visited and took him for a trip around Nothern Italy, the Côte d'Azur and Paris; then travelled to DebConf in Switzerland, visited Gregor in Innsbruck, and travelled back to Nice by train, crossing the alps and a big chunk of Italy.
  • Then went to Buenos Aires for 3 months (mom was very happy).
  • Back in Europe, attended Fosdem, and moved to Barcelona for 3 months; so far, the best city I ever lived in!
  • Went back to Dublin for a while, ended up staying over 8 months, including getting a temporary job at a normal office (booo!).
    • Although one of these months I spent travelling in the States (meh).
    • And of course, many more short trips, including a couple of visits to Barcelona, Lille, Nice, and of course Brussels for Fosdem.
  • Again went to Buenos Aires, only 2 months this time.
  • Another month in Dublin, then holidays visiting my friends in Lisbon, wedding in Oviedo, and a road trip around Asturias and Galicia.
  • From Spain I flew to Prague and stayed for 2 months (definitely not enough).
  • Quick trip to Dublin, then CCC camp and DebConf in Germany.

And now, I am in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

enjoy cluj!

Hi Martín! So you stay next to the national theater? That's a few hundred meters from Avram Iancu 5 where I lived 13 years ago. I still come for family visits to Cluj. It would be fun to see you there.

How long do you want to stay? What are you doing there? Have you already learned Romanian? What a pity that we did not chat in Heidelberg.

Hah, that's very close to my place!

I am staying for 2 months, not too much, but surely it will be enough to learn some very basic Romanian, I am already trying :)

It is a pity we did not meet in Heidelberg, indeed. But I was there for a few days only, I barely had time to talk with all the people I know in DebConf! If you come to Cluj before the end of October, give me a shout, and we can meet for a drink.
