Now | April 2023

This is my “now” page inspired by Derek Sievers. It answers “what I’m doing now?“. My life, projects and priorities. I post an update here every 1-3 months.

What’s up as of April 2023?

We’ve opened the travelling season. I’ve been saving time to travel thanks to tons of automations. I am optimising for two things: 1) time that I can spend with family 2) grow my passion for technology and automation!

Visiting St Michael’s Mount 🏰

We started our travelling season. This year is going to be full of adventures!

St Michael's Mount is a fascinating historic site located in Cornwall, United Kingdom. Here are some lesser-known facts about St Michael's Mount:

  • St Michael's Mount is connected to the mainland by a man-made causeway, which is only visible during low tide. During high tide, the island is cut off from the mainland.
  • The Mount has been home to a Benedictine monastery since the 11th century. The monastery was dissolved during the Reformation in the 16th century and the Mount became a private residence.
  • The current castle on St Michael's Mount was built in the 12th century by the Norman Benedictine monks who first established the monastery on the site.
  • St Michael's Mount was once a major pilgrimage site, and many people believed that the island was a gateway to the afterlife. Today, the island is still a popular tourist attraction and visitors can explore the castle and gardens.
  • The island has a long and fascinating history, with evidence of human habitation dating back to the Bronze Age. In the 6th century, the Mount is said to have been the site of a vision of the Archangel Michael, who is said to have appeared to a group of fishermen and instructed them to build a church on the island.
  • During the English Civil War, St Michael's Mount was held by Royalist forces, and was besieged and captured by Parliamentarian forces in 1646.
    The Mount is also famous for its gardens, which were created in the early 20th century by the St Aubyn family, who still own and maintain the property today.
  • St Michael's Mount is said to be one of the most haunted places in the UK, with stories of ghostly apparitions and unexplained sounds and movements.
