I’m back in Kelowna, Canada now. Started back at my engineering job which is going really well. They are going to sponsor me so I might stay here for a few years, see what happens. Big White opened up a couple of weeks ago so every weekend will be spent Snowboarding up there from now on. It’s looking like it’s going to be an awesome season! I also bought a 7 seater van so there will be numerous road trips over the winter and maybe a massive trans North America one next summer (nothing is planned yet but let me know if you are keen to come).

Dan brand Orange Juice in Slovenia ... what a country!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
