To the races!

This weekend were the Hahnenkamm races in Kitzbuhel. I’ve never seen anything like it, but I wasn’t sure if I had a day off to go to see it. On Thursday I arrived at work with one of my colleagues. Not many people were working that day. As we entered the office my boss totally…

Kicking off another ski season

Time flies when you’re having fun. Or when you’re working your ass off. It feels like forever ago that I had time to sit down and gather my thoughts. At the end of October I had my Halloween tour, followed by the end-of-season-party to wrap up summer. I had two nights in my own bed…
