Lovely Batfish

Batfish school, Sail Rock, Gulf of Thailand

I was lucky with the light and many Batfish swimming around the Batfich Pinnacle, Sail Rock. The peace and tranquillity underwater is mesmerizing and the Batfish simply gorgeous.

Here and there one can also spot a Whaleshark around.

Happy me with Sail Rock in the background

Sunset in the air

VFR flying (i.e. flying under visual flight rules) allows landing up to 30 minutes after sunset. It actually is the most amazing time of the day to fly 🛩

I believe i can fly

First day of a flying trip around the EU with my son

Airplane tied down on an airport after landing. Ready to go exploring on foot.

Aerial view on a nice coastal village and a beach before landing at Mallorca airport

Taking photos in the air while flying an airplane is demanding but not impossible. Some of the best memories are kept this way.

Nothing like a selfie while looking at the instrument panel

The Dream

My Dream Mountain, Matterhorn, Zermatt, Switzerland

My childhood dream was to ski in Zermatt, below the Matterhorn mountain. A few years ago this dream got real as i invited my wife to join me for a skiing trip.

The only problem: she actually never learned how to ski.

So I decided to help her learn and she decided to give it a try. And what a try that was. On the positive side, there was New Year 2017, we started our journey a few days ago.

But on the more demanding side, at around 3000m it was -15 degrees Celsius and wind blowing hard, sometimes even more than 70km/h. Not at all the easiest conditions, especially for someone that practically never skied before.

The First Day

Grächen St.Niklas Ski Resort Map

We decided to start learning right after New Years, nearby Zermatt, in the Grächen, St.Niklaus Ski Resort.

Grächen is superfriendly, nice and beautiful Ski Resort, that can accomodate families, beginners, but also more demanding skiers alike.

First day was a great success. My wife stepped on the skis for the first time and she did it with grace and enthusiasm. We learned some basics, how to move, how to stop and how to control the speed.

At first, she was really really afraid of the speed, so she developed an innovative stopping system – falling down intentionally. This was rather difficult thing to make her stop doing – and not a very pleasant for her to practice in the first place. But, after a day’s worth of falling, standing up and mastering basic skills, she was able to move fairly good, although also rather hurt and a bit pissed – the falling (and me yelling at her) took the toll, of course.

I was called a terrible teacher before.

End of the first day, happy wife, happy life
