The light wind forecast suggested that today was one for exploring. So, took a trip out to look over Turaida Castle with the guys from Brazil. From the top of tower was a great view of the surrounding Gauja National Park with the Gauja River winding through. Obscurus Orbis were a touring Latvian Medieval Music […]
There was not so much breeze in the morning which meant plans to go out on the water early were put on hold. Instead, I decided to keep active and take a tour of Riga on the bike. I spent most of the time rattling my way over the winding cobbled streets of the old […]
Having consulted the trusty tourist guide, returned to the city to take in the sights. First stop was the Royal Castle. The level of decoration was stunning, even the wooden floors in the rooms were incredibly detailed. Went exploring away from the official tour and found a side entrance to the castle. Passed by the […]
Whilst in Poland, decided to take some time away from the coast and explore Warsaw. First stop was a cruise through the Old Town which has been near flawlessly rebuilt after virtually total destruction during the Second World War. On the way into the city, all the cars stopped in the road and many people […]

This place is popular with both windsurfers and kitesurfers where the water on the gently shelving south shore of the peninsula can get pretty crowded at times. Crossing over the railway line, going through the forest and then hitting the beach on the […]
Whilst on Öland, I spent some time exloring Borgholm Castle and the surrounding grounds. Don’t think this is the main entrance… In the museum, there was a model of the castle as it once would have looked before being destroyed by fire in 1806.
I went out Formula Windsurfing at Gyldendal to experience some light onshore wind conditions. With the breakwater there surrounding the harbour, it also provided a great spot for Klaus Nørreggard who wanted to get a little more video footage for a preview piece he is putting together for the YM FW World Championships later in […]
A sunny morning presented the opportunity to mess around with cameras, stickers and the van.
Whilst out training at Skive, Denmark in preparation for the YM FW World Championships 2011, I took the camera out and grabbed a few shots from the water.
On the way out of Lake Garda, decided to stop off and take a few shots before heading off on the drive north.
