About Mr. G. And this blog/FB page…

Dear reader,
Maybe you’d like to know a bit more on who’s behind this blog/FaceBook page/Twitter/ etc…
Ok, facts… You certainly already know that I’m in my late 30’s, working for an Air Navigation Service Provider in Europe (Switzerland), that I’m a photographer (as side job). But did you knew that this blog is maintained by a single guy?
Best post: around 60’000 views, 1’400 fans on Facebook, and ~800 posts written over 2 years on the blog thelostgopro.com
Living my life at 180 km/h! (And traveling as much as I can!…)
Also I quit smoking 8 days ago (bad habit) after almost 20 years of addiction. No help (patches, e-cig, gum,…) just WILL! And it works!
It’s hard, but it worth the effort!
All in all, to summarize:
“I gotta feelin’ that this year’s gonna be a good good year, feelin'” (self interpretation of the Black Eyed Peas song…)! 😉
Mr. G.

Ps the backlog is still present… Will do my best to clear 2 days of backlog per day (usually during evening in Europe)… But also got a life…

Thank you a 1000 times!

Another SUCCESS STORY for TheLostGoPro.com Community! (from Venice, CA, USA to Germany)

Hi!
I can’t resist sharing with you this success story written by Nicolas B. from Germany who lost his GoPro Camera in Venice Beach (CA, USA) as per this post:
http://thelostgopro.com/2013/10/12/lost-on-the-shore-of-venice-beach-los-angeles-ca-usa-on-2013-10-05/
“On 5 October, I lost in the waves of Venice Beach my GoPro camera. Previously, I was on a 22 days road trip across the U.S. with two friends. More than 200 videos and over 1000 photos were now lost.
Back in Germany, I found in the Facebook group „The Lost GoPro”. I tried my luck and wrote a little description.
2 weeks after losing my camera, someone wrote that he had found a camera on Venice Beach and wait for a photo for identification.
Full of anticipation, I sent him a photo of the first days of our road trip.
A day later, the confirmation came. Tom from Venice Beach had actually found my camera on the wet sand near the breakwater rocks, on the south side.
8 November was my lucky day. After a short visit at the customs authorities in my hometown I got my GoPro camera, including all photos and videos.
Many, many thanks to the owner of the Facebook group and website TheLostGoPro.com Guillaume (aka Mr. G.) and of course to Chris and Tom W. for the recovery and return of my camera.
Thank you – Nicolas from Germany –
