Trip to Singapore, Bali and Gili islands (Lombok)

Hey, long time no write ;)

Had a great thing happen in my life while I was away (from the blog). I got married ;)

And the lovely wife and I went for a nice trip to the aforementioned locations (Singapore, Bali and Gili islands).

I got my hands on a nice tough (2m shock-proof) and waterproof (10m) compact camera - an Olympus μ TOUGH-8010 . And we have taken quite some underwater photos of the Bali islands reef snorkeling. It really is a _verry_ automatic camera (verry little manual options present - apart for preset shooting profiles), but makes quite nice underwater photos.

The rest of the pictures I took with my trusty Olympus E510 with ownusers grip.

Here are the photos from the trip - if you like them do comment:

The weather was quite gloomy, it's not the cameras fault for the lack of light ;)

A GE-free future

The European Commission has just allowed genetically engineered crops into Europe, ignoring safety concerns of the public interest. I've just joined a new EU initiative with Greenpeace, Avaaz and Friends of the Earth - calling for a moratorium on GE crops in the EU. With 1 million citizens' signatures, we can make an official legal request to the European Commission. Sign below and let's get to 1 million:

Sleighing / Ir a trineo

This week we had a visitor on our couch and we decided to do some Slovenian winter sport activities and we got a couple of our sleighs and went to a hill near Ljubljana called Kurenšček. Well here you can see the actual photos, the adventures and misadventures ;)

Snow is FUN!

So we took some pictures, I hope you can find some enjoyment in them as we did in sleighing.
