Along the Canal

Today we walked along the canal in London from Angel to Camden. We didn’t actually make it to Camden as they have blocked off the towpath just before Camden Town as they are building residential apartments along there. It was a lovely day (for winter). 10C and reasonably sunny.

Digital Nomad vs Location Independence

I have been reading and thinking about the difference between being a digital nomad and being location independent recently. A digital nomad is primarily based around travel – seeing the world while working remotely. Location independence (to me) means that you may be based primarily in a few different locations in the world, and you set up your life in such a way as you are not dependent on one particular location.

Hi-Tech Nomad Ltd

I just formed the company “Hi-Tech Nomad Ltd”. I have had the domain for forever, and have always wanted to do something with it. I have the twitter handle @hitechnomad, and lots of other social media assets. My plan is to provide information, goods and resources for “digital nomads” – those people who travel and work on things that are location independent.

New Apple Watch!

I just bought myself the latest Apple Watch! I had the original one – the Series 0 – and just upgraded to the Series 3 (without cellular support). I use my watch all the time – I keep track of my heart rate, exercise, and it is my main interface to my phone when I am out and about.

Healthy Day

Today has been a pretty healthy day all up. Both Helen and I went for a run – mine was not as long as normal, just under 5km. We have also been eating a mainly vegan/vegetarian diet over the past few days. It’s been a healthy start to the year!

Outbreaks of Veganism

Helen and I want to go vegan in 2018 – but only for one or two days of the week. I’m not sure how well we’ll do at this, but we have tried some vegan cheese and some hazelnut milk, and we managed to survive! Let’s see if we can keep it up for the year!

Romeo and Juliet at the Troxy

Last night Helen’s choir – Some Voices – performed Romeo and Juliet at the Troxy in Limehouse. It was a superb show – really atmospheric and the music was excellent!

The show was based on Baz Luhrmann’s version of Romeo and Juliet. The audience was divided into the Montagues and the Capulets. The Montagues were wearing Hawaiian shirts – surf-casual dress. The Capulets were wearing red and black, with a more formal Spanish gangster look. We filed in to the Troxy in different queues depending on whether we were Capulets or Montagues.

The choir sung songs based on the movie and there were actors and dancers performing key scenes. It was a true spectacle!
