About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

First of all I want to say that I'm happily married, me and my wife are all about natural, stress-free living. We're both quite geeky, enjoying a variety of tv shows, movies and books.
We are both vegans, but do not mind if our guests are meat eaters.
Also on my spare time I photograph mixed martial arts events to a website http://www.mmaviking.com

PHILOSOPHY

"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Allright, we were in Pokhara, Nepal in february 2012. We had rented an apartment. It had been raining nonstop for a couple of days and in the middle of the night our upstairs neighbor calls us to come to the roof immediately, we hesitated for a moment but decided to climb there and boy... and if you don't know, the Himalayas or to be more precise the Annapurna Mountain Range is totally visible in Pokhara. But this time it was different.
The sky was totally clear and it was one of the largest full moons I've seen, now that was impressive already, but it had snowed for two days up in the mountains and the clear white snow reflected the moonlight so much so that it felt like the mountains had grown in size tremendously. I was speechless and we just stood on the roof for an hour and said nothing. Just stared at the mountains.
