  • Getting Home Before The Sun Sets and Pikmin Bloom

    Getting Home Before The Sun Sets and Pikmin Bloom

    At this time of year there is a race between the walker and the sun. Either you must go for a walk earlier in the day or you must be ready to walk after the sun has set. Both of these are possible. The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are getting lower. They […]

  • An Ingress Bike ride that passed by bisons

    An Ingress Bike ride that passed by bisons

    Yesterday I went on an Ingress bike tide that passed by bison. I went from Nyon to Mies and from Mies up towards Gex, and before getting to Gex, I turned towards Divonne where I met an Ingress player before heading home, as the sun was setting. I went out in the morning, dressed warmly. […]

  • Ingress Walks – A 12km path to Level 13

    I stopped playing Ingress a few years ago because of how much time it requires. I have started going on Ingress walks again – a 12km path to level 13 in yesterday’s case, because I’m combining the daily walk that I would do anyway, with listening to podcasts and audiobooks, anyway. By walking and listening […]

  • A Ten Kilometre Sunday Ingress Walk

    A Ten Kilometre Sunday Ingress Walk

    I was going to take the scooter but it was stuck by three SUVs so I had no option but to lazily give up and go on a 10 kilometre Sunday Ingress walk. I couldn’t be bothered running up to the second floor, getting the car keys, moving the car, getting the scooter out and […]

  • An Ingress Photo Walk Before The Rain

    An Ingress Photo Walk Before The Rain

    Today I went for an Ingress Photo Walk before the rain and I eventually did have to go home because the phone was starting to get wet and there was no urgency to continue playing the game and walking. I did spot a few things that were slightly out of the ordinary. The first thing […]

  • Ingress By Bike

    Ingress by bike is good when you’re in the countryside because it allows you to travel between villages faster than if you were walking and without the carbon footprint of taking the car or a scooter with an internal combustion engine. It also allows you to stop anywhere. Distance Covered In two hours I travelled […]

  • Playing Ingress and Pokemon Go in parallel

    People are playing Ingress and Pokemon Go in Parallel. Both games use the same geo-located points and walk the same routes. They have the same places to farm and combat. I started playing Ingress again, but only a few minutes here and there. As I play I see new faces and new people at Ingress […]

  • Ingress no more

    For months I was passionate about Ingress. I was passionate about the game until fuel costs, parking costs, device costs and time costs were too high. When you play from level one to eight the game is fun. You progress quickly and you meet new people. You discover new places and it’s enjoyable. As you […]

  • On the lack of Common interests and mobile phones getting the blame

    On Linkedin and Facebook people believe that mobile phones are making people less sociable then they would be if phones were not around. They believe that the world in which we lived before mobile phones was an open and sociable place where everyone communicated with everyone. These people are forgetting the social context that brought […]

  • Fribourg was liberated by Fribourg, Lausanne and Geneva Ingress resistance fighters

    This weekend teams of Resistance Ingress agents from Fribourg, Lausanne and Geneva met in Fribourg to neutralise and capture all Enlightened portals. Some teams were on foot to liberate portals from the centre of the city. I was with the bike team and we took care of liberating all of the portals on the outskirts. […]
