Why is the weather playing games with us?!

It's been a really strange season start when it comes to weather. We've had it all! Lots of snow in November followed by föhn storms and seven weeks of high pressure melting most of the snow. Finally winter came back in the beginning of January with some incredible powder days. But now again we're waiting for more snow. What is this? Why? I would already blame that one damn lunatic at States for all this! Lots of snow seems to be falling on the Rockies. America first, right?! Here some memories from this strange weather period.

Exploring Sri Lanka's wildlife and waves


Mid December we escaped the drought in the Alps to Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has a lot to offer but we mainly went for nature and wildlife experiences as well as a bit of surfing. This was our first visit to Sri Lanka, but certainly not the last. This is just a random collection of pics along our adventures. So enjoy and get bored with all wildlife shots until we get some snow ;-)
