Where's Baldo?

To baldly go where others have gone before.


Hi there, I'm Baldo! Welcome to my tech and travel blog.

I post about various tech-related things, depending mostly on what projects I happen to be working on at the time, and travel-related posts based on where I currently am or have just visited. This blog is still a work-in-progress, so apologies for any missing features!

You can check out my about page for more info on the site and my goals if you'd like. Otherwise, I hope you're able to find something useful here to help you with your tech or travel-related journey!
