Satellite of Love

The middle of December is rarely a good time for flying kites. It’s cold, it’s damp, it’s dark … the winds die down, the sun sets wayyy too early – if it wasn’t for the aggressive festive spirit, December would be the worst month of them all. But here and there a beautiful sunny and … Read more

Where the Summer Ends

For us lucky kiters that have so many so great friends in Croatia, the end of the summer is a geographical term. It’s not so much the question of when, but where – for us the summer ends on an island. The island is small and near the mainland, a seemingly unremarkable blob of land … Read more
