Scotland 2013

Last week I found myself doing what I like most. Travelling!
Driven by emotions, I took a plane (more like 4), crossed Europe and landed to Glasgow!

As a Grave Digger fan and worshipper of the album "Tunes of War", I learned about William Wallace and his battles before I even watch the Braveheart movie. Therefore I always wanted to visit this glorious land. So here I am, beneath Scotland's gloomy sky. And what a spectacular landscape view?!!

During my trip I was staying in Glasgow's West End, but I also visited Edinburg, Stirling and Alloa.

Lots of beer and food, some new friends, a couple of old friends, pancakes and eggs'n'sausages for breakfast, a Queensryche cancelled show, some non-metal 2nd hand vinyl recordstores.
All in all another adventure not to be forgotten!

Here are some photos:

Touch the Sun

I'm not a huge fan of the summer sun.

Don't get me wrong, I love summers, and as an astronomy enthusiast I also love the sun. What I mean with this statement is that due to my low levels of melanin in my body combined with the summer sun in Cyprus I find myself with serious sunburns if found uncovered under direct sunlight.

So I usually get my swimming in the Cypriot waters during the night, and this way I can have wonderful Sunrises in the morning. The proof, here:

If we could only Touch The Sun, to dream is not enoughthe world is on our hands...

PS - A friend on Fb said that I'm not holding it right. My answer was
"I'm not holding it. I'm containing it within the centrer of the distance between my palms, using an energy grid. The asymmetry of the glance is caused by instant coronal mass ejections (CME), witch takes place at the spots where sun's magnetic field penetrates it's surface." ~ Yes, I know. I have to get a life soon...



Perseids Meteor Shower 2013

Well, it's been a long time since my last post.
A lot of activity to cover on blog during this summer, lots of stuff and photos to follow.

To start covering the lost time and ground here's a photo I took on August 12th during the Perseids Meteor Shower.

We were in Agios Ioannis in Nicosia/Cyprus during the event, and that was the only partly successful image we managed to take. Enjoy
