I was in Japan May 2017 and thats one of the best times of my life. I also travel a lot in my country. Started to a challenge about it actually; at least 1 country per year 1 city per month. After moving to Munich for my new job, continuing this challenge. Corona is just a pause :)
Amateur Photography
In 2015 I decided to buy a camera as I was traveling a lot. My searches end up with a Sony RX100 M3. Actually as it is not seem like a brilliant camera, I am pretty satisfied with the results. Most important thing is it makes me discover my surroundings and search for beauty in everyday life and ordinary things. Instagram: fototropi
Sometimes especially if my job begins to be repetitive, I keep myself busy with trial and error style mini projects. Tried Forex with MQL4 programming, machine learning with basic principles. Beside these interesting topics abandoned several nontrivial projects, mostly written in PHP.

If I am in the mood I read a lot. Besides on daily reads of technical articles, I like to read popular science, futurism, utopia / distopias, anthropology, alternative economies...

Being a travel lover I also like trekking and bike riding. Living in Munich gives a lot of opportunities for nature discovery. Yet my distance record for biking is 125 kms and had 40000+ steps a day while visiting Rome.

Also like "tasting" hobbies, tried calligraphy (failed miserably :D), went to creative writing course (but couldn't write a piece yet, still have some ideas though), tried playing piano but at that time of my life had a lot of overtime so couldn't practice enough, now an electric guitar is resting next to me and little more hopeful about it.
