MIG-29 Flight Part 2 – Manoeuvres

MIG-29 Flight Part 2 – Manoeuvres

Back at only 4,000 feet my stomach settles and Alexander asks if I’m ready. “ready a long time ago!” I replied. Okay, he says, “We will start with some light G force manoeuvres then go more”. Pulling only about 3Gs in wide turns, the force is ample, I can feel my suit tighten as the […]

To the Edge of Space: So This Is How I’m Going To Die……

To the Edge of Space: So This Is How I’m Going To Die……

  When I woke up it didn’t feel like a different day. Big stretch, groggily lumber to the door, stretch again, make breakfast, shower, get dressed but for the first time while on this trip, I had a deadline. At the same time, I’m still thinking it could all be a scam. That is until […]

Travel Can Be Dangerous

Travel Can Be Dangerous

No really! It’s true. The unknown, the unaccompanied negotiation of transportation, accommodation and food all put together with decisions you can’t take back. Well, travel can be dangerous in so many ways, but probably not in the way that you think. No, I’m not talking about physically or violently. Travel is VERY dangerous to the […]

Conquering Mount Olympus – Part 2

After a not so very nice sleep in Refuge A we slowly prepared ourselves for the day ahead. We got dressed, had a small breakfast and began our hike around 9am. The second leg of the hike is significantly more difficult then the first.   The hike from Prionia to Refuge A is approx 6.5 […]

Conquering Mount Olympus – Part 1

Conquering Mount Olympus – Part 1

The biggest mountain in Greece. Olympus. Home of Zeus. And next on the to-do list. We are not mountaineers. For the elitists in the audience who may turn their noses up at us we are being nothing but practical. We exercise, but not much hiking. And when we do, it’s nothing even close to a […]

Proving Gravity

Proving Gravity

Proving Gravity   I would like to tell you this is a story of over coming emotion. A heroine tale of how to conquer one of my biggest fears. Personal triumph in the face of adversity. However, I would be writing a lie. When it comes to blogging nothing is more important than the truth. […]

The Camping Trip from Hell

The Camping Trip from Hell

This story was written by my best bro. He’s a pretty good writer and summed up our.. Hell, very well. We went portaging and WARNING, there is some harsh language used. Will probably be the only time but I wanted to leave this as he wrote it. Enjoy. So…  Where to begin? It all started […]
