Beach life

Beach life

Sundays are White Beach day; we bring a variable number of people to the beach, have lunch and play around in the sea and then go home. The good old times used to be Chili Bar ‘Gulp Sunday’; eat as much bbq and drink as much beer as you could for 300 peso each. It […]

A house with a view

A house with a view

My fiancee (wahey!) and myself can’t be stopped right now, we’re on a monster-roll; after shocking pretty much every part of the whole extended family by pale-faced falling on my knees and completely forgetting my rehearsed speech we have now decided to take our first step on the property ladder together. After looking around for […]

Tooth fairy

My almost-step-son (wahey!) is seven years old and is just entering into the fantastic world of losing teeth. I clearly remember loving the feeling of wiggling a tooth with your tongue all day long, carefully eating food as to not break it off in an unplanned extraction. We’ve made a deal that if I get […]

Obviously my dear mother was generally inclined towards reading and learning, being a teacher and all, but every now and then she would bring home a box of new books that was going into the […]

Linn’s family is here visiting and the other day Linn, her dad and me went canyoning with Planet Action! Linn and Carro went on the same trip a few months ago and this time it was my turn to come along. It was awesome! Standing above a fall and trying to look down and failing […]

Say what?

Say what?

Both me and my brother have a genetical hearing disability, inherited from our dad, and I’ve also added on to that with loud concerts and explosions… and I’ve got tinnitus. Basically my hearing is pretty bad! I can get through my day-to-day life pretty good, but every now and then I really notice it; in […]
