It has often been said and there is certainly some truth in it: the world has never again been the same after the big divide that took place on the 11th of september 2001. Something changed in me as well on that day, I sat watching the events taking place in disbelief, like many others, and I felt that something very wrong was going on here, it just didn't feel right. It was as if the veils were lifted and naivity was gone forever. The world was harder now, less playful, and the focus was suddenly on war and money and power. Who is behind this scheme and why? It is evident to me that there are people playing chess with the world and that worries me deeply.
Gliding is my way of life, ever since I was a child I have been wanting to fly. I am fortunate that I get to fly quite often, it is something that I hope to do the rest of my life. Believe me, there is nothing like the feeling of scratching the clouds or returning home after a long flight.
