Back online

After my old blog hoster has given up his hosting server, I was offline for nearly a year.  Now, I have set up a new one on and imported the old stuff from my old blog (big plus for WordPress). Hope my blogging rhytm is a bit more steady.


Back from the holiday season

After three holidays I’m finally back in Salzburg and staying a while.

The first trip was to Italy over the weekend: the definitely worst drinking experience ever. I just have to say “Tutto gas” – see the tutto gas homepage for pictures.

The next thing was Rock im Park in Nürnberg, Germany – a big rock festival. The whole festival was pretty cool – we had our nice camping site right next to our car (just some meters, not like Novarock ’06 kilometers). The bands were just great (especially Die Ärzte, Beatsteaks, Muse and Evanescence). And the camping group was really nice – we had a lot of fun (although some bastards stole us 24 cans of beer).

On Saturday I came back from Rhodes – we were in Faliraki and it was amazing. Rhodes is the cleanest of all Greek islands I’ve been so far. The sea is clear as drinking water – azure and refreshing. We were there before the really busy season started – so it was quiet. In the last days the party started there – mostly totally hammered Englishmen (and woman).

Yesterday, I went on the first ski tour this season. That’s definitely too late to start. But this time I have a big excuse: there’s nearly no snow in Salzburg (and in whole Europe).
The little snow on the Roßfeld is just enough to ski halfway down again (don’t use your fancy new ones).

At least I did something and it was a wonderful day! Just say: sitting in the sun for 20 minutes and I don’t care whether there’s snow or not 🙂

Finally, we did it. And: we had a very nice day!!

After some run-down-the-hill action with the smaller paraglider we got the real ones. We were just “allowed” to fly halfway down the hill but that couldn’t stop me! Landing near the street I found myself smiling after my first real flight 🙂
Walter and Florian were with me – we all really enjoyed the whole thing (even carrying the 12kg paraglider up the hill).
