Finally some activity again

Hi guys,

After a long time of hibernation my website finally wakes up with some activity.
Since the last post plenty of things happened. To give you a short overview….
After enjoying the summer in Santa Cruz I stopped working at CodeGear/Embarcadero at the end of August. The reason for this was that I planned to move in with Sue who is living in Adelaide, Australia. But before the big move I wanted to travel the Western States of the US. So with my friend Lüku already in Maui for some awesome kite boarding I started out in the most western state of the US (Hawaii). Enjoying the warm water, the tropical climate and white sanded beaches Maui was the perfect entry point of my further travels. To let the curious ones of you no longer wait I just uploaded some pictures to the gallery.
After the relaxing 2 weeks Lüku and I went back to SC where he took the plane back to Switzerland a few days later. Myself was busy preparing for my next trip on the main land which would lead me through California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana and Arizona. So I couple days later I started my 6600 mile road trip, heading towards Salt Lake City where my friend Ändu was scheduled to arrive. After picking him up we went to the Jackson Hole area where we spent two weeks visiting Yellowstone and the surrounding area. Those days were filled with hiking, mountain biking, canoing, driving, sightseeing, camping and a lot more. Like always when you are having a great time time flies by quickly. So it was already time to drop Ändu off at the airport again and continuing my journey by myself. This led me to Bryce Canyon, Zion, slot canyons off the road, Arches NP, Canyonlands, Moab, Glen Canyon area (including “The Wave“), Grand Canyon, Havasu Falls, Joshua Tree NP, LA and many other places. The best probably is to check my gallery once in a while where I’ll upload more pictures from my trip. But it will take some time go through the roughly 12’000 pictures I shot during this time and selecting the best ones.

For now I have started my adventures here in Adelaide, Australia where I currently sweat in the hot (39 Celsius) weather.
