Relaxed Kite Flying at Rabbit’s Grove

‘Twas a nice Sunday … sunny, windy … just made for some relaxed kite flying. So we took our kites to Zajčja dobrava (‘Rabbit’s Grove’), a small landscape park on the eastern part of Ljubljana. There is not much to say; the place is less than ideal, a grove of trees just behind us did … Read more

New Guy in the Sky

We are oftentimes waxing poetically about our first KAP kite, the Venerable Blue Rokkaku. The constant praising of the old kite even while flying new(er) ones, and an opportunity of someone of us having a birthday, prompted the indomitable Janez Vizjak, founder, chief kite designer and kite maker of Dr.Agon kites, to make another Rokkaku … Read more


The eastern part of Ljubljana basin – Polje, Zadobrova, Beričevo, Zalog, Kašelj – is a curious mix of agricultural, industrial, and leisure areas.

But how does it feel to be up there with all the creatures of the air? Magnificent, we’d say. To experience that we just had … Read more

The Glorious Sky of Jesolo, Italy

We’ve had a kite club for what, almost 6 years now?

Where the Mountains Meet the Sea

Fold your legs, let’s roll … When the inimitable Sandro Macchi, KAP master, inventor, kite designer and a member of the illustrious 30 kite club from Genova asked us if we’d drive for 1.350 km just to fly kites for a couple of hours, we said – yes, of course! But we weren’t going to … Read more
