10-03-2006 Check out the website of my sister Mirjam @Herry.nl. She keeps amazing me every day.

26-02-2006 Just came back from a week of parawaiting with Theo and Lizette, and Nick, Kath and Paco in Alicante, Espaņa. Too strong winds to fly, but at least I did 3 short flights in which I could do the remaining tasks for my club brevet: backwards starting. Anyway, if you ever want to do paragliding in Spain: go to Nick!

14-01-2006 A small update: working for Sun is FUN!!! :-)

17-11-2005 I have passed the KNVvL theoretical exam for paragliding brevet 2!!!! Wow, what a great day it is!

17-11-2005 Today I learned that I am accepted for a job at Sun MicroSystems! Thanks to Michael Page for this great opportunity!

21-09-2005 I spent another two weeks in Austria, paragliding. Did a lot of flights (34 these weeks, now totalling 57), even two flights over 45 minutes using thermals! And now I am the proud owner of Swing Mistral 3.28 #43-428-34635.

17-07-2005 After 2 weeks of joyful paragliding with AirTime in Fliegerkamp at Greifenburg (Austria) I have returned home. Photos can be found in the gallery.
