I’ve only been in Halle for an afternoon and it was raining all the time, but I did step into the current situation of this classic picture:image

(I’ll go through my pictures later, I just returned)

In both Bratislava and Leipzig (but mostly Bratislava) I noticed the (disturbingly) colourful patterns painted on the housing blocks:

I couldn’t name a specific one, but definitely the 1970s housing blocks in the Olympic Village. I thought that area was beautiful.

Anonymous asked: where did you go on vacation?

Munich/Zagreb/Belgrade/Bratislava/Leipzig (and Halle)

That’s an interesting option. I’ll give it a try.

Edit: i seem to be stuck at 5639  posts. Might have something to do with the data limit.

westsidesafari asked: I would have to say, your blog is probably one of the best I have seen on Tumblr. It is incredibly honed and crafted. I love that your sense of 'doom' permeates through all your posts. I have one question to ask. Have you any greater ideas for the blog as an archive? Have you backed up the blog in any way and do you think this page will be safe for years to come?

Thank you, that’s a very kind thing to say. A good question as well. It started out as an archive of sorts for myself and a while ago I did make a backup via some site, but it’s far from perfect (obviously without the functionality of ablog and with low-res pictures). So if anyoneknows the perfect solution…
It’s reallyup to the whims of tumblr (or yahoo), so I couldn’t tell how safe it is for the years to come.
