The day before yesterday, I was in a photoshoot with photographer Michiel Rotgans and two of the best snowboarders from Holland, Steff Zeestraten and Bas Elhorst. We had a great and productive day; after the first run we had already some awesome shots. We ended up riding a steep couloir where we found a White Mountain goat family. Later I met some ibex who did not move even though I was five meters from them.

Yesterday Nadine Walner and I travelled to San Fransisco. At the airport we needed about two hours to obtain a Holiday Visa. Twice I went online and paid a fifty-five euro fee, however the websites were fake and my credit cards get blocked, Nadine’s credit card also get blocked and I was urgently trying to board my flight but couldn’t download the visa confirmation sent by email. Finally a very kind woman how organised a Holiday Visa for me, and I literally ran onto the flight at the very last minute before the flight took off. Twenty hours later, a friend of mine, Sarah Weldon, picked us up at the airport.

Today we had a great, warm, sunny day, Sarah showed us around some of the nicest places. 27 February is the competition day in Kirkrood.
