Clear skies and early morning frost. Short nights and midsummer parties in Finland while New Zealand shows it’s shortest days. Nice glassy day for a surf.
For a long time weekdays meant nothing. Now weekends and rainy days give time to disconnect from grinding manual labor and to seek unfamiliar views. Ice cold water freezes the brain as you duck dive through the waves. The cold prickles the unprotected hands and turns them bright red. Fingers feel like they are stung […]
This is what Kaikoura has looked like during the past few months through a Canon 70d and kit lens. I did buy a 50mm f1.4 this week. Finally returning to use a prime lens. This time it’s with a 1.6 crop… Perhaps next I’ll find something wider.
After passing a 4 day course + 1 day evaluation I was able to start applying for abseiling jobs in Kaikoura region. IRATA offers these internationally accepted courses around the world. I took mine in Christchurch with Heads Up Training. It was a good course and I learned a lot of new stuff and met […]

To put the idea simple and short: if you eat any animal products you would need to kill x amount of farm animals every month. Depending on how much animal based food you eat you might have to kill a chicken or perhaps a whole cage full of chickens and perhaps a cow every 3 […]
x Building wicking garden beds was a new thing for me. The idea of this self- contained raised bed is that it saves a lot of water through capillary action by supplying water from the bottom up. Some of the benefits of wicking garden bed: It prevents evaporation self-watering drainage during heavy rains tree roots don’t reach soil The […]
Free people are everywhere and they judge no one. The place to find them this time was Koh Phangan. Surpisingly writing about what happened would do no justice to your own explorations and experiences. The island is full of love and to navigate it you just let go of comparison, be happy and go partying. I met beautiful […]
