Twin Rhino

Follow my footsteps through wild adventures, urban explorations, road trips and much more. I travel to a country or even just a city, the air I breathe is new and it makes me think about what to write, what to do in my life and how to make things better. After a good vacation it is time to collect all the raw material and start creating, sharing and writing intriguing stories.

I explored many places, from Cape Hope to the North Cape, from San Francisco to Hong Kong & Taipei, from neglected places to crowded cities and I will expand my boundaries much further in the near future. I love to share my adventures through this blog.

What you can find: photos, videos and other great stories…

Thank you for being here today!

Our dream: making a trebuchet

Our dream: making a trebuchet

Our dream was to make a historical war machine. A trebuchet was build to besiege an enemy by man power and with the help of a huge wooden structure to catapult objects toward the enemy. The trebuchet existed from the 4th century BC as a siege weapon until the 13th century. I adore the mechanism and the thought about how those men fought with it during the war.

A strange habit of mine…
It’s un unstoppable process where I’m going to pass out in the end. It bothers me a lot but I’ll have to deal with it until I die. Fortunately nothing all too serious or bad, just a little issue I truly wish to be different.
