    Kara-okay

    May 21 in Dominican Republic

    Monday night, dull right?
    Wrong!
    It's Karaoke night at VoyVoy! The place with no more than 3 customers any other day of the week is suddenly packed.

    A few brave (drunk?) souls and also some talents; hard to tell, sound is horrible anyway.

    Bottom line, it is not because it's Monday that.... not sure what I wanted to say.... cheers!

    25 knots and more

    May 20 in Dominican Republic

    The first few kiting days were crazy. While we expected 15-20 knots at most, we got 5 days of 25-30 knots from 1 to 6 pm. I think we got quite lucky!

    It is the first time I was fully depowered on my 10 meters kite and still could easily jump above 5 meters.
    The local champion (part of the Olympics team) was showing off with 12-15 meter jumps - it was very impressive to see it live.

    With a wind that strong (and gusty), I could not spend more than 2 hours per day in the water. And for the very first time my abs were sore after the second day.Read more

    Paradise indeed

    May 16 in Dominican Republic

    Sometimes things feel right from the beginning. This is one of those times. Great appartment, nice resort, beautiful view, sandy beach (oh really?), fresh fruits and coffee for breakfast - this is how life should be!

    10 minutes walk separate us from breakfast, exactly the right amount to wake up and get really hungry.

  • Day1

    The first 2018 kite trip starts off in a best possible way (not!) as upon entering the aircraft we realize it's basically a troop transporter. Chairs hard like wood, no entertainment system, not even a charging port. Also they run out of beer after the first "meal".

    But it was cheap right you will tell me.
    Nope. 1100 CHF for a simple transatlantic trip is NOT cheap. To keep things in perspective, the tickets to New York were 500 CHF. Disastrous. Thank you very much Eurowings.

    And yum yum the "meatballs" and "sandwich".

    Istanbul by winter

    February 25 in Turkey

    December 2017, work dinner. My buddy Evrim says:
    "You still didn't come to visit me in Istanbul".
    So I opened the internet and booked my flight while the waiter filled for the 4th time my glass of wine.

    Until the last moment I was not sure I would go but luckily I did. Even if the hour long transfer from the airport, the usual queue at the immigration desk, and the relatively cold weather tested my faith in my decision making.

    Evrim played his host role to perfection. Nice cocktails, bars and restaurants. Friday evening we hit a cocktail bar with a small dancefloor and a very talented french DJ. Since we were in Istanbul we obviously had pizza for breakfast on Saturday and went to see Black Panther in the afternoon. In the evening we had a proper party in yet another stunning location, overlooking the bosphorus bridge. And instead of the late night kebab we had fried turkish dumplings (manti).

    As we overslept a bit I almost missed my flight but in the end I got back happy to Zurich.

    Barcelona, here we go again.

    February 16 in Spain

    Friday off so I could take an early flight and enjoy an additional afternoon in sunny, uh no rainy.. uh no... cloudy barcelona (forecast changed every 5 minutes).

    We started off with some terrace then tapas. We found a pretty big boat in the port... the Dilbar, biggest yacht in the world.
    We also discovered totally by chance a fantastic restaurant. The owner, Mirilla I presume, spoke perfect french, english and spanish (probably, wasnt able to judge myself...). We went for a drink and we felt so good there we booked a table for the next day.

    On Saturday we tries our witts in Barcelocked, an escape room in the heart of Barcelona. The room was huge and filled with riddles and puzzles. Although we required 2 hints (but hey there were only 2 of us!) we escaped the room with 2 minutes left on the clock. Yay us!

    The usual terrace on Sunday afternoon as well as some Navajos (?) concluded yet another amazing weekend in Barcelona!

    Poland #1

    February 4 in Poland

    It took some time to write this one. Lazyness obviously but also because it is difficult to find something unordinary that happened this weekend.
    The classic 7:10 flight to Warsaw. The recurrent car rental and drive to Lodz. The usual visit to the Bytom shop and the unsurprisingly larger than expected shopping bags. The compulsory gambling tour in the casino. The repetitive but always tasty food at home.

    The only thing setting this trip apart from the others is that Lukasz was in Cyprus that weekend and I had to have fun alone.

    Also, the Nissan Qashqai is a shitty car.

    Barcelona, where else

    January 28 in Spain

    2018 starts with a very obvious trip to Barcelona.
    Why obvious? Come on man, tapas... not! As someone wise (more or less) probably said once, "Go there where your heart belongs. Especially if there is some good wine there."
    We obviously went crazy on food, afternoon drinks and cuddles.
    The saturday dinner at this hidden restaurant on Pla de Palau was fun. First time in my life did I eat snails... a bit weird... definitely not something I am eager to eat again. The rest however was superb. Shrimps, small fish things, black rice and fried squid, foie gras and other delicacies; a delight for the amateur gourmets!
    Sunday afternoon was spent at our usual roof terrace in Port Vell imagining future weekends in Barcelona.
    See you in 3 weeks!
