Tree planting volunteer party at Skelgill Farm in Newlands Valley. I've done about 10 so far. Just 699,999,990 to go!

A surreal and hilarious moment in the European Parliament when an ill-informed Brexit Party MEP questions the academic credentials of the Green Party's Molly Scott Cato MEP. πŸ˜‚

More than 2,000 years later, this 1st century BCE Roman bridge is still standing.

Free chargers all over Verona (and free WiFi throughout the city) via their smart city app.

The absolutely stunning, largely car free, Slovenian seaside town of Piran.

Beautiful spot for a charge. And Ljubljana has an electric road train for getting around! πŸ’šπŸ”ŒπŸ”‹

Woodland and shrubland make up more than 60% of Slovenia's land cover (compared to 13% in the UK). It is home to wolves, bears, and two million people, and the whole country would fit into the Highlands of Scotland.

A natural swimming pool complete with its own little ecosystem and array of wildlife. Last night we watched swifts swooping down and picking off insects from the surface. Had a lovely swim among the frogs, tadpoles, water boatmen and dragonflies.

Stumbled upon the beautiful town of Wittenberg. Pretty much the entire place is pedestrianised. Lovely. πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈ

Great evening last night at the WordPress Berlin meetup. Talked about Elasticsearch to help scaling issues with a web host from Georgia, and joined with @mrchrisadams to talk about the sustainable web, featuring @[email protected]'s work, and @[email protected] Cc @[email protected]

One of the last remaining preserved segments of the Berlin Wall. Pretty sobering.

Free charging at the offices of StWB (Stadtwerke Brandenburg), the local energy company serving the town of Brandenburg an der Havel and surrounding area. Since April 2018 the company has provided nothing but 100% renewable energy (Γ–kostrom, if you speak German). Thank you!

Currently reading Dear Mr Harper, the excellent biography of Robin Harper, Britain's first Green parliamentarian. Stumbled upon this bit about Andrew Neil's editorship of The Scotsman. I'll never understand why the BBC think it's ok to employ him as an unbiased political commentator.

Who will they employ to replace him when he retires? Paul Dacre?
