My first flight

I had my first gliderflight in Hoogeveen. Michiel was my instructor and he learned me to fly my first turns. It was a great experience and in the spring of next year I will star my lessons for my license.

Sunday, September 7


Having coffe in Denmark. The hotel where we have coffee is over 500 years old. The Danish are very friendly people and they served an excelent apple pie. Danmark is member of the European Union, but they still have their old money, you have ot pay in Kroner, Euro's are not accepted. Very strange, since we are used to the Euro and the convenience of paying everyuwhere in the same currency. The Danes and the English are the only Europeans still not using the Euro.

Sailing another small boat

With my good friend John I sailed this tiny little boat from Lauwersoog to Ameland and back. It was a wonderfull trip with excelent weather, lots of seals, and perfect wind conditions. We had a fine dinner on the Island and a few Palm bears.
