Hey guys, I just started a new blog last week.
It's supposed to be a traveling blog (which might still take a while to start) but I decided to go ahead and created one right now.
Last week I visited Auschwitz, and I wrote a blogpost about it. I think it's very important to keep alive the memory of what happened in WW2.

So occasionally I might do other kinds of blog posts as well, some of them more philosophical than others, some just to show progress as I travel, and I might do some youtube video's about quote discussions.
Anyways, for those who are interested, read it and please comment on there if you'd like :)

So while we might have very different opinions on various matters, you're still an interesting person so I might just check that blog of yours now and then.

Thanks for the comments.
I'm wondering what you guys think of my writing style by the way.
I posted about the blog on the Project Zomboid forums and one of the guys there said it was 'sensational and wrought with emotion. It's not for me.'
I think I might have turned him off to start with such a heavy subject.
Not sure what to think about the sensational part though, makes me think of dirty tabloids.

I also created a new youtube channel to go along with the blog, which I can upload video's to that I make while travelling.
I put a test video up there now, filmed with my new GoPro HD Hero 2 camera, and it's from last week's ski'ing trip on an easy blue route.

Ski'ing in Spindleruv Mlyn, Czech Republic, 27-2-2012 - YouTube

I might in the feature also make some video's in which I discuss quotes that are inspirational to me, or I might just make a blog post about them, I'm not completely sure yet.

Pfff, blue routes. :p

I skimmed through the blog post, seemed interesting and engaging, but I haven't really read it yet, so I can't comment on your style. Will do once I get round to actually reading it. I did think the pictures were captivating though, nice work with the camera. The front gate one was especially haunting.

Cool video and amazing quality,

I went down the 'Lauberhorn-Weltcup Abfahrt' in Switzerland 2 weeks ago, really awesome, but my Dutch skiing skills still were nothing in comparison with the pro Swiss people there, lucky bastards, at least I can swim better:D.

How else could one describe Auschwitz? I think i would be deeply desturbed to read about someone visiting that place, and describing it flatly and purely factual without any semblence that they were effected by what they had seen there. I would question their humanity.

Considdering the subject matter i think you handled it well, not too emotional but neither cold and unaffected.

Lol blue route but pretty nice footage. Man up and try some harder runs next time I want to see how black and double black diamond runs look in euroland.

I think the problem is how melodramatic they will get without even trying. It's not that uncommon for people to be fed up by the subject (pardon the pun) because only thing you hear about it is almost agony filled patronization about "think of X and Y happened so you should react now otherwise you're [invoke Godwin's Law here]!" just because you didn't cry at the drop of the hat and join the melodramatic patronization choir. Only thing missing is the obvious "And that's terrible!!!" that just takes the cake. There's a fine line between telling and showing in a reasonable manner (which was present in SiC's blog post IMHO) and just forcing it down your throat because of nevar forget and excessive melodrama.

If by off track you mean way out of bounds that is really stupid enough people die every year in my area that I wouldn't risk it...

Yeah that's what I meant, but of course I don't go where obviously shouldn't. AKA places with high risk of avalanches and places with lots hidden rocks. Though there are people who go those places simply because no one else does so or it's never been done before. Understandble but very foolish -Those are the kind who get killed in my area. Though I'm glad that doesn't happen often.

You won't see me going off-route. I'm smarter than that :p
I also did some red routes but I somehow can't quite find the right files, must have been lost in transfer. Must be somewhere though.
I only ever did a black route once, but that was 2 years ago or so, so I wasn't going to go for that again just yet.
