7 days since the earthquake

Christchurch, my heart goes out to you.  Every day brings it a little closer. Every day one of gets a phone call and hears some shit news. Talk about psychic destruction. I know, us Kiwis are tough old things, but still.


"Where are you from?" I asked.
"The centre of the Universe", he replied.

Air and Style, Innsbruck, 2011

So, I find myself on pro snowboarding circuit in Europe. Such is life!

More shots from my weekend's work in Austria last week.  It was an utter manic mindspin! Lovely people, bad food, fantastic Air and Style competition, (find out more here).  I had the joy of staying in a charming hotel right bang in the centre of the old town, near Innsbruck's famous c1500 Golden Roof.

Mozart, as a child, had stayed in my hotel, perhaps even my very room.

Innsbruck, Austria

I've decided the planes passing overhead sound like the city sighing. Listening to Mozart in a hotel he stayed at as a child. Special.
