The future of technology? Time flies

The time is flying. It is almost to much for Mr. Mike. 

I not only talking about getting older, but to keep up with all the younglings and the new technology. I am trying to buy a new phone in 2020, and I am surprised everytime I buy one. 


I remeber with I bought a Sony Experia walkman phone where I could listen to music on. This was crazy, that you could use your phone with mp3 files. 

Now you can bluethooth your phone to all devices.... What happend with the time suddenly?

Well, the year 2020 I will try to keep up. I just read a post about the history of the mobile phone and the and the future of mobile technology.

There is a lot of good points and interesseting reading in that article. Think I will find me a new phone before klimping the Kilimanjare. A good smartphone is one of your best travelfriends. 


That was all of my thoughts today. I know it aint much, but that is all you get from me.

Stay tuned for more news

My way to Kilimanjaro

I've always been fascinated by people who climb mountains. However, it was never been a passion that I have had the opportunity and time to cultivate. That needs to be changed, and I have set a goal to climb Kilimanjaro in 2020.


The reason I chose this mountain is that you can walk all the way to the top and it does not require any special equipment. However, I have always had a passion for climbing, but I would like to start out quietly, although I have heard that hiking this mountain should be a great challenge.


However, I have hiked in high mountains many times in my life, and I have crossed the Pyrenees on foot and hiked in high mountains in the United States, Mexico, and Colombia. I have never been to Africa before and my goal is Kilimanjaro!


Before I start buying too much mountaineering equipment, I need to be able to strengthen my ankles. I just invested in a balance board so I can settle on this in the office every day, and make sure I get some strong ankles as I have been dealing with weak ankles for many years.

It really requires some training and preparation to go there. At the moment I am running almost every day, and when I am not running, I have bought some training gear at so are improved my morning routines, and I can now put in one more workout a day because I have some training equipment at home.
