With this trip a liftime dream of mine comes true because Japan was No.1 on my list where I wanna go for snowboarding in my life.
And what should I say, the stories about the best powder on earth and sushi all day long are …. all true.

I wanted to do the blog earlier, but the Inet connections in japanese Hotels are far away from being fast and stable.

We spent the first days in the area of Furano with hiking and searching for some funny spots and arrived yesterday at famous Asahidake. There are rumors that this pklace has the best powder on this planet and YEEEES it has. I´ve never feelt snow that was as fluffy and lightweight as here …. its just everywhre around you.

But enough talking for now … here are some lifestyle Pics from the last days.

Expedition to Tatooine Pt.2 http://map.blogsport.de/2012/10/27/expedition-to-tatooine-pt-2/ http://map.blogsport.de/2012/10/27/expedition-to-tatooine-pt-2/#comments Sat, 27 Oct 2012 15:57:13 +0000 Glovis Everything&Nothing Photography Travel Work http://map.blogsport.de/2012/10/27/expedition-to-tatooine-pt-2/ So after 6 weeks on the desert planet I´m back in munich with the first snowflakes dancing from the grey sky outside. Time to let this unbelievable time down there pass again and make little sum up.
It was an absolutly stunning expierience with a great event and a perfect bunch of people that were like a 2nd family in the end.

To describe everything I saw and did down there would be more than to much for this little blog.
But to mention some of the most memorable things:
Driving an BMW M6 on the Formula1 Racetrack of YasMarina
Riding an BMW X5 M trough the desert beside a real Rallydriver
Having a nightsurfing session on a perfect artifical wave rigth in the middle of the desert
Going with 4 Yachts to a bbq on an island outside of AbuDhabi City
Seeing the highest building on this planet
Meeting an unbelievable good bunch of people
and on and on and on … believe me it was a once in a lifetime thing and I´ll never forget these weeks.

I wanna give a big THANK YOU to the people that made all this happen and so perfect. Hopefully I´ll get the chance to see you all again some day!!

Here are some more pictures from the trip to give you a little bit more of a feeling for the good times:


Thats the reason for what all this great things happend … The new BMW M6 Coupe on the presentation site.


Signs of raw power and the beauty&beast in action


A whole flight worth about 1.5 Million Euros on a little tour up the Jebel Hafeet Mountain


The desert and how to have fun out there


Pure beauty


The instructor cars and my ususal ride


I looked 6 weeks at this car and I didin´t find a single detail I don´t liked except of the fact I can´t afford one.

Expedition to Tatooine Pt.1 http://map.blogsport.de/2012/09/12/expedition-to-tatooine-pt-1/ http://map.blogsport.de/2012/09/12/expedition-to-tatooine-pt-1/#comments Wed, 12 Sep 2012 12:21:53 +0000 Glovis Everything&Nothing Photography Travel Work http://map.blogsport.de/2012/09/12/expedition-to-tatooine-pt-1/ For the next six weeks I´m hanging around in Abu Dhabi to shoot the Launch Event for the new BMW M6 Coupe (which is really hell of a car) …. so I´ll have to tell a lot about heat, sand and sweat.

I just arrived and trying to get adopeted to the clima here. The tempratures outside are between 36°C (in the night) and 46°C (around midday), inside you have between 18°C and 23°C so the temprature shock when stepping through a door is really knocking you to the ground (glady I show no signs of a cold). There is sand everywhere, the architecture and the dimensions of everything is completly crazy. I´ve never seen so big buildings (like the ferrariworld or the emirates palace hotel) and so much so big cars (even the Toyotas are bigger than the avarage european SUV and all of them are white) somewhere.

I where already a day out in the desert with a BMW M6 to check the scienic drive route …. damn fun on that.

You see I´m completly overwhelmed from the first impressions of this „planet“.

So here are some pictures to speak for themselves:


99.9% of the area looks like this


Two sides of the desert …. luxury and rubbish


The Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque (3rd biggest in the world) ….


Strange Architecture is everywhere and even a „Danish“ Bridge going to nowhere.


The two reasons why I´m here … I can´t tell ya how much fun they are

There will be some more over the next weeks so stay tuned

Euskadi http://map.blogsport.de/2012/09/05/euskadi/ http://map.blogsport.de/2012/09/05/euskadi/#comments Wed, 05 Sep 2012 16:25:55 +0000 Glovis Everything&Nothing Photography Travel http://map.blogsport.de/2012/09/05/euskadi/ I´ve been on a perfect trip to Euskadi (the Basquecountry in Spain) the last week. It is an absolut stunnig landscape there with mountains that are descendnig into the atlantic ocean.
I was invited by the Office of „Surfing Euskadi“ which is an organsiation that tries to show the world the perfect conditions there for surfers of all levels. The breaks on the Basquecoast reach from mellow beachbreaks for beginners (there are surfschools and camps everywhere around) to the World Famous left of Mundaka (when it´s on you´ll find no better in europe).

But Euskadi has a lot more to offer than only perfect surf. It´s an country that is blessed with beautiful landscapes behind every corner, modern citys (as Bilbao with the famous Guggenheim Museum) great architecture and cultural offers, a superb culture of food and drink (thats kind of religion) and super nice people that offer you a warm welcome everywhere you go.

Thanks to all that made this trip happen and especially to our guide Joakin who gave us the feeling of a trip with your friends. I´ll be back for sure …..
So should you ever get the chance to go there …. DON´T MISS IT!!


Donostia/SanSebastian


Modern living meets living traditions


Wild landscapes


Citylife & Perfect architecture


The sea has a lot to offer there: surfing your brain out …


… calming it back down & refreshing it with perfect food

Summer work http://map.blogsport.de/2012/08/03/summer-work/ http://map.blogsport.de/2012/08/03/summer-work/#comments Fri, 03 Aug 2012 11:18:37 +0000 Glovis Everything&Nothing Work Design http://map.blogsport.de/2012/08/03/summer-work/ Even when the summer in Munich doesn´t deserve his name, I´m really into summermode and doin some other work than racing trough the mountains and trying to get good shots.
And the other side of my workinglife is the graphic/layout thing.

And when the summer here isn´t happening and you have no money to follow it there is nothing better than having it on your screen, so this year I started layouting for „Tide Mag“ a Munich based surfing magazine. It´s quite a lot of fun and you have the best surfspots and surfers around the world right on your desk.

End of Jule the first issue I have completly (exept one story) layoutet came into the shops nd I think I´ve done a good job. But hey check it for yourself and get an issue!!

For more information about the mag and surfing check tidemag.com

Here are some snippets from the issue:


That is you should look for in your local bookstore
