I woke up this morning, hearing all the early morning busyness in our house, everybody packing their things, trying to get to the staff van on time and i secretly felt sorry for myself that I couldn’t go up. But wait! Who said I couldn’t? Within minutes I decided to also go up to Cardrona and found myself on top of the hill an hour later. Already carrying my gear to the staff area was a mission and I had to stop and rest multiple times.

The art of sleeping – or how I ended up in hospital…

Phew, has it seriously been one month since I last posted? I must have seemed like swallowed up by earth to most of you but – in my defense – apart from being quite busy at work and with social life I was mostly busy with being sick and asleep. Big style sick. Hospital-like sick. And literally asleep around the clock. The good news is I am on the road of recovery and feeling better everyday – time to update you guys on life in New Zealand! What happened during the last couple of weeks? What got me so sick? Why was I working so much? Is it worth it to sacrifice your health and balance for work? And why do I still keep falling asleep now? Many stories to be told – but first it’s time for some more sleep… and when I rise tomorrow I’ll prepare you a big style update from life in New Zealand – and hospital. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
