Internet access in Cuba

Cuba is still a developing country in terms of Internet access. For a few years tinternet was only available via satellite, and that was slow. There are now a few submarine cables, which has improved the speed, reliability and accessibility. Internet access in Cuba is basically offered by the state provider ETECSA. The internet available in hotels is just passed through to the provider as well.

Internet Zugang in Kuba

Kuba ist, was den Zugang zum Internet betrifft, immer noch ein Entwicklungsland. Für einige Jahre gab es nur Internet über Satellit, und das war entsprechend langsam. Mittlerweile gibt es Seekabel, was die Geschwindigkeit, Stabilität und Erreichbarkeit verbessert hat. Der Internetzugang in Kuba wird grundsätzlich vom staatlichen Anbieter ETECSA angeboten. Auch das Internet in Hotels läuft letztendlich darüber.

Geocaching in Cuba

GC Kuba BadgeGeocaching in Cuba is not very common, which may be due to limited Internet offerings, and the partially poorly developed infrastructure. Most caches exist in and around major cities and well-known resorts (Havana, Cayo Santa María, Guardalavaca, Cardenas, Pinar del Río). There are also some caches in and around Guantánamo Bay, but these can only be reached from the local Naval Base. Not for tourists ...

Geocaching in Kuba

GC Kuba Badge

Geocaching in Kuba ist nicht sehr verbreitet, was vielleicht auch den Einschränkungen des Internetangebots sowie der teilweise schlecht ausgebauten Infrastruktur geschuldet sein dürfte. Die meisten Caches gibt es in und um einigen größeren Städten und bekannten Urlaubsgebieten (HavannaCayo Santa MaríaGuardalavacaCardenasPinar del Río). Weiterhin gibt es einige Caches in und um Guantánamo Bay, aber diese sind nur von der dortigen Naval Base aus zu erreichen. Also nichts für Urlauber ...

Flixbus, Berlin, Alt-Tegel

Die Flixbus Haltestelle Alt-Tegel in Berlin ist etwas kompliziert zu finden. Die Buchungsbestätigung sagt "Berlin (U Alt-Tegel)", das ist aber nicht die Bushaltestelle die Flixbus verwendet. Und in der vorab versendeten E-Mail mit dem Link zur Karte findet sich nur "Karolinenstraße 13507 Berlin Germany" als Adresse - das ist reichlich ungenau.

Schauen wir uns das mal im Detail an:

Very Important Ingress Couchsurfing Badge

Let me tell you how easy it is to operate 50 opposing Ingress agents from your couch. And let me tell you how you get recognized as a very important agent by the opposing faction. All you have to do is go out, enjoy life with your family, eat ice cream, go on business or vacation trips - and then sit back on your couch and wait. Ok, the ice cream part is optional. And you have to leave a resonator or two behind, in remote Ingress portals. Maybe add a shield, for fun and the Engineer badge.

Summer Vacation 2016

This years summer vacation brought us to the American Northwest. First of all, it was a surprise in multiple ways for our kid - it did not know where we are going until we arrived at the gate for the final flight in Frankfurt. It did not know that we are going to visit it's favorite mountain. And it did not know that there will be a concert of a band it likes.

We did plan this vacation around three basic parameters:

  • The kid wants to see Mount St. Helens
  • There is a The Piano Guys concert in Seattle
  • We want to go on a #PGBackPacking trip

Everything else we've seen, visited, and experienced is a nice add-on.
