caving – meet the earth

Thursday, May 13th, 2004

Maybe a decade ago, it wouldve been my worst nightmare.

apartment in Bristol

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2003

I settled down in my apartment. If I were to imagine a perfect place to stay in, it would be quite identical to this one. I was in the top (first) floor, and my house has really huge windows overlooking a lawn below. There was plenty of light and ventilation, and a lot of greenery […]
