Let’s play a game Oppo! Let’s play a game Oppo!

As some of you may know the Twingo was involved in a small accident:

Damn Monday, couldn’t you spare my car?

I just took the Twingo to an indy mechanic specialised in Renaults to replace the front brakes (driving through the Alps was tough on the ageing discs and pads in). Look what they gave me as a courtesy car: A first gen Twingo!

I’m thinking about buying a 50's/60's console radio/record player for in my new apartment. I think they fit what I have in mind for the interior, and if one would work that would make it even better! However, what I run into on second hand sites is that the working ones tend to cost a lot, while the broken ones are…

I’m an actual engineer now!

I just officially received my Master of Science degree in Automotive Technology, woohoo! I actually focussed more on Control Engineering and Battery systems, but the title sounds nice anyway.

The hunt for an appartment near my new job (Leiden/Amsterdam area) is becoming really frustrating. First thing I realised were the rather high prices: no problemI can deal with that. Second thing I encountered was scarsity of appartments/studios: no problrm, I’ll just have to make sure to reply to more of them.

So I’m starting my new (and first ‘real’) job today, very exciting! However, as the office is around 130km from home, and I haven’t found a suitable appartment to rent yet, this also means (temporarily) replacing the Twingo with one (or 2 or 3) of these yellow things:

Three weeks ago a bunch of Europpos were hooning across central Europe for the Alpine edition of the 2018 Europpomeet. I will be doing a multi-part write-up of the events and stuff we came across during the meet. Today part 4!

Two weeks ago a bunch of Europpos were hooning across central Europe for the Alpine edition of the 2018 Europpomeet. I will be doing a multi-part write-up of the events and stuff we came across during the meet. Today part 2!

Europpomeet 2018: Alpine edition (Part I) Europpomeet 2018: Alpine edition (Part I)

Last week a bunch of Europpos and I were hooning across central Europe for the Alpine edition of the 2018 Europpomeet. (Sadly Alpine edition refers to the mountains and not the cars in this case...) I will be doing a multi-part write-up of the events and stuff we came across during the meet.

The Twingo survived the Alps! The Twingo survived the Alps!

And the ‘Ring, and the Dolomites! I just returned from the Europpomeet in Germany/Austria/Slovenia/Italy, and I must say I’m impressed by the way the Twingo handled the mountain passes.

So that went better than expected! So that went better than expected!

Remember when I was super nervous for my defense yesterday?

I’m defending my master thesis tomorrow, and I’m getting more and more nervous by the minute...

Today’s gratuitous Twingo post Today’s gratuitous Twingo post

Took the Twingo on a bit of a back road drive yesterday (well, the closest we have to resembling a proper back road around here), and came across this brilliant backlight. Jumped out of the car and took this shot.
