I've been on the lookout for the Northern Lights for a while, and haved missed them a couple of times. When a friend asked if I wanted to go dog sledging in Finland, I thought this was a great opportunity to possibly finish my quest for the immer eluding Aurora Borealis, and at the same time experience the quite unique mushing, ice cold weather and lots of snow.

It had been a while since I [last traveled](ERROR: Invalid post-url 2017, 08, 16, hungary, ), it was holiday, right after New Years, and there was a travelitch that needed to be scratched. Deciding on a destination wasn't easy, but it had to be reachable by train and not take too long. I already had packed my bag the day before, and still hadn't made up my mind. After lot of deliberation and dice throwing, I settled for Den Haag. And 30 minutes after I figured it out I was in the beautiful Antwerp station, bought there a ticket, and found myself two hours later walking to the Kingkool city hostel.

Tilburg, The Netherlands

University was closed for the Day of the Flemish Community. The weather was good, birds were tsjirping, my legs were aching for some action. And that's when I decided to do a large bike trip. After some deliberation on remote-but-not-to-remote places, I decided to go for Tilburg, a city in the Netherlands, about 100km from where I live.

Tilburg is a large city of more than 200 thousand inhabitants in southern Netherlands. Tilburg already had a castle in the late medieval times, but it wasn't until the 18th century, when Napoleon gave Tilburg city rights, that it became a city of some importance. During the Industrial Revolution it became more of a mayor city, when wool factories were constructed, making it the wool and textile city of the Netherlands 1. After the second World War, it would hold the position but the economy imploded due fewer government money being poured into Tilburg.

Culturally, Tilburg houses two concert halls, three theaters, three cinemas, and some jazz bars and other smaller music venues. Besides the famous modern art 'De Pont' museum, it also has a museum about textile and many galleries and local artists.

Now that we got Tilburg covered a little, theoretically, it was time for the real thing. After some preparations, I left on Sunday around half past twelve.

  1. As wool was treated with urine during the process, employees had to bring a bottle of urine to work every day, giving the nickname of Kruikezeikers, those who piss into a jar, to the Tilburgers

One of the man's many projects: Ceramic Dog. As he's very recognizable guitarist on many of Tom Waits albums, I wanted to check him out.

A crappy recording to be found at http://audio.jerous.org/2017-marc-ribot/ !

I sometimes look at the intervals table of my workouts of my favourite run log http://runningahead.com. It's missing a speed column though, which I sometimes prefer over a pace. This little script adds it :)

I've only run it so far in

One of my favourite piano players: Brad Mehldau was performing near me. I'd already seen him at Ghent Jazz last year, together with John Scofield and Mark Guiliana, but now he was there with his famous trio.

Listen to the Brad Mehldau Trio!

Two awesome covers by his: My Valentine and Si Tu Vois Ma Mère
