Ever since I moved to Spain, I started to appreciate Slovenia (as a land and people, not the government) in a different way.

Great food, stunning lakes and more dragons than you can shake a lance at.

It's always cool seeing ionosphere, because it looks like Earth´s forcefield.

It˙s funny how you remember yourself dreaming about working on really amazing and challenging projects and then years later those dreams become a reality...

In my opinion this is one of the most amazing breweries (and Mikkeller). Dangerously close to stupid or Dangerously close, but no cigar are like fireworks in your mouth.

Tomorrow I will fly with A321 as always, but still an amazing video. I am not really a "plane freak", but when you see Hercules TP-84T flying low above Madrid, you are amazed.

My brother wants to take helicopter lessons.. I suspect they are expensive too.. so for now it's a dream... and I don't have to worry!
When I worked at NASA, there was this lovely older gentleman who had worked there since it opened. He was also a pilot and had a small Cessna .. He invited all of my coworkers to take a flight with him. He never convinced me :P I was still more chicken back then...

Kudos to all my colleagues at ESA!

ESA’s Rosetta mission has soft-landed its Philae probe on a comet, the first time in history that such an extraordinary feat has been achieved.
