They say all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Therefore, I also found some time to do some sightseeing while attending the Advanced TDD workshop. London is the capital city of England with the population over 8 million and it’s one of the leading tourist destinations in the world. It has so many attractions that I would probably have to spend there a couple of weeks to see only the most popular ones. Luckily, my childhood friend volunteered to take me on a city tour. Łukasz has spent the last 12 years in the United Kingdom, so we don’t see each other too often. Even so, we had a really great time recalling old times while we were exploring this metropolis.
Travelling is a one of the greatest benefits of working for a distributed company. It has been only 10 months since I joined Automattic, but I already have been on a business travel in four different locations. First I was attending WordCamp Polska conference in Kraków. Then I had company meetup in Park City, Utah. Soon after I had my team’s get together in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Finally I had my second team meetup in Lisbon, Portugal during the first week of March.
Ned Stark would say “Winter is Coming”. This is no better time than now to go back to warm summer memories. This August we were on a road trip together with my wife and our friends. Our trip in a nutshell:
- 5 countries visited (including Vatican and Monaco)
- 7 places we stayed in
- 14 days of travel
- over 5 000 km on the trip meter
The Maldives consists of 1,192 coral islands grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls. It’s a tropical paradise of palm trees, white sandy beaches, sparkling clear, warm water in turquoise lagoons and colourful coral reefs. That’s why we decided together with my wife Ania to spend our honeymoon on the island of Meerufenfushi located in North Male Atoll. It turned out to be the best choice ever!
