Kitesurf World Cup in SPO..

Hey there!

From the 1st till the 10th of August the annual Kitesurf World Cup was held in St. Peter-Ording at the North Sea in Germany. The Surf Cup attracts many spectators each year by offering different activities such as beach volleyball, huge beach parties at night and of course the centre of attention - kitesurfing.

Many professionals from all over the world came to the small coastal town to participate in various competitions. The winners of this years' World Cup are Karolina Winkowska (Poland) and Aaron Hadlow (United Kingdom).

I visited the camp of the world cup on the 6th of August. Although the wind wasn't strong enough on that day to provide good surfing conditions I spent the day walking along the broad beach and soaking up the sun with some friends. It was also lovely to see all these colourful kites lying on the beach or soaring up in the air.

I will definitely return to beautiful St. Peter-Ording.


Dîner en blanc..

Hey there!

Last week the city where I live hosted a "Dîner en blanc" (White Dinner) in one of our main streets.
The "Dîner en blanc" was invented in Paris by François Pasquier about 25 years ago and has been held in numerous cities around the world since then (eg. New York City, Sydney, Nairobi, Barcelona,..).

On the original homepage it is stated that the "Dîner en blanc is simply a friendly gathering whose sole purpose is to create a magical evening".

Of course the event that was hosted in my city didn't reach the size equal to the Parisian one but it was still a great opportunity to get together and to enjoy a picnic in style.

Let me know if you've experienced a "Dîner in blanc" before and where!
