Its been an adventurous month of travel, activities and hard work on our exciting new venture Markd.
Trip to Europe
Late Jan and early Feb I took a much overdue trip back to the UK to visit family that I hadnt seen for over 2.5 years. It was great to catch up with everyone again, particularly awesome to see my cousins youngest considerably older than I saw him last time.
While in Europe I spent a week with my parents in the Alps on a rather excellent Skiing adventure in Morzine. Its been over 6 years since I last went skiing and although I hadnt forgotten the snowplow I had forgotten how much you ache after a hard day on the slopes.. either that or im getting old!
I even snuck in a day of snowboarding for the first time at the end of the trip:
Above and Below the Water
When I returned to Australia in early Feb I ditched the snow for the heat of the the Perth Summer. Before leaving I had begun my adventures in Kite Surfing and was keen to continue when I returned.
So I have been out a number of times, whenever the wind will allow basically. Its been awesome, I cant believe I haven't been doing it sooner. As one fellow POM put it the other day; "Not kite surfing in WA its like going to Chamoix and not skiing"
To round off my favorite Australian past times, this month I have also been doing a fair bit of snorkeling / free diving around Perth and Busselton. I put tohether this short movie of one of my Busso dives:
Last but certainty not least I have been working hard on Markd. I spoke about Markd in my last post, its a chrome extension and website that aims to make remembering and organizing people fast, simple and fun.
