back from Maldives...

After a long Journey from the Maldives I´ve just arrived in Germany for four more days before leaving to the Island of Margarita.... After a lot of rain at the maldivian Islands I´m already looking forward to be back on the water with beautiful weather in El Yaque next week !!!!!

Mittwoch, 5. Dezember 2007


Today was my day number three at Maldives and first day in the waves.. but unluckily they were a bit to choppy and not so powerful like they use to be, so even with tow inn surfing was pretty hard to find a good wave... the fotos will follow soon....

my former sport....

After a long while I just went to watch a game of my former Sport : Ice Hockey.... where I´ve been a Referee in the mayor League in Germany for some years.... So I went to the new ISS Dome in Düsseldorf and actually was a bit disappointed... the legendary atmosphere of the old stadium Brehmstrasse was gone completely..... kind of normal in the new Arenas... changes happen but I was happy to finally watch a game again... still love the sport !!!!
