Great White, Gulmarg, Kashmir

Gulmarg is a great destination for powder skiing. Multiple bowls are lined up and scream to be ripped apart. However, most of the terrain is very similar and the real steeps are lacking, with some exceptions of which my favourite is called Great White. A huge bowl with steep lines accessible within a couple of hours from the gondola offers great lines and a nice day out in the field.

Gulmarg; skiing currypowder in the Himalayas

When you’re on a long trip, skiing in the Rockies would not be my first pick. One of the most economical options for good skiing worldwide is Gulmarg in Kashmir. The skiing can be absolutely worldclass but unfortunately it still comes with a price…

Southern India; cities, backwaters and temples

Three years ago I had traveled the North of India, Rajasthan. This time I wanted to explore the South. From Chennai in the East via Bangalore in the middle to Kerala in the West. Kerala is known as ‘God’s own country’ so it better be good! Will India deliver again this time? Is the South really different from the North?

Tandoor in Bangalore, India

Bangalore has some of the best food in India if you´d ask me. The city is more developed than others in the country and because of its many national immigrants most types of Indian food are available. If you´re looking for a place in the center of town with a guarantee for superb food, there is an easy pick: Tandoor on Mahatma Gandhi Road!

Jalsa in Bangalore, India

One of my favourite cuisines is the one from India. When I had to visit Bangalore for business purposes I used the opportunity to taste the local cuisine. Bangalore turned out to be a real heaven when in comes to food. When you´re looking for a fun and great dining experience, Jalsa would be my recommendation!

Samarkand in Bangalore, India

Whenever you’ll find yourself in Bangalore looking for very tasty food in a great ambience and you’re not on a tight budget, well things are easy, visit Samarkand and success is guaranteed!

20 – 20 cricket playoffs in Bangalore

In May 2012 I went to Bangalore, India for business. On my way downtown from the airport I noticed the huge cricket stadium. I kept it in mind and later that week it turned out the playoffs were full on. That Wednesday I witnessed my first cricket match!

India; culture and skiing in Kashmir

In 2008 I wanted to visit India mainly to ski Gulmarg. A lot of resistence from the family made me decide not to go. Resistence because Kashmir is officially in war which could obviously be dangerous. Two years later I decided I had to go regardless of other people’s opinions.
