On March 22, 2014 in Seefeld, Austria, we had the 8th edition of the World Stars Ski Event organized by Star Team for Children.

At the start of 2014 I decided to bring back the website classic colors, but I was having some technical issues with the template I was using, Atahualpa, and started to look for a new one while made the look and feel changes (If I find a good new theme I would change it, but if not I´d keep the old one with a new look and try to live with the issues). After looking several themes (free and premium), in late january a theme has caught my attention: Avada, a premium theme developed by Theme Fusion and sold at Theme Forest website. Since it was a premium theme (and a bit expensive), I did a good research about the theme before get it and came to the conclusion that the use of this theme would bring huge benefits to a website like mine, that has lots of content. In february I decided to publish the website with the old theme with a new look and feel because I didn´t know when I would be able to buy the Avada Theme, but fortunately I got it sooner than I expected thanks to my fiance (I was only expecting to get it in june or july).
