Sorry all, i am DOWN UNDER, and just didn't write for a while.
So i am already in Adelaide - south Oz- for nearly 2 weeks.
Been super nice and relaxing so far.
It is spring time here, so everything is relativity green still as it sometimes even rains a bit - yes Holland, but a drop or two, not more. The temperature is beautiful. Always between 20 and 30 degrees.
I promised Nat to make her fit while i am here, so the goal is to stay healthy and sporty for 4 weeks.
Convinced Nat to do Bikram yoga and combine this with a LIVER and GALL BLADDER cleanse. This meant, we could only eat apples and drink apple juice for 3 days, then take a water epson salt mix 4x and at the end a lemon- oil mix .
We were super weak, and the Bikram yoga - a 90min yoga in 42 degrees- was so hard, that we both nearly fainted in the first 2 classes. We bought a 7 day pass, to make sure we wud go back...!
After the oil shake, we actually spent the rest of the day on the toilet, or close to A toilet.
But we managed our goal, lost some weight and celebrated at the beach with some fries and ice cream- woohoo!
The days pass by so quickly here, it's scary. Went for a nice run in the McLaren Vale, walks along Brighton beach, went for more Bikram action.
On another run early in the morning we saw a little Koala Baer just sitting on the ground and walking to the next tree, about 2m away from us. Amazing.
Rented some bike shoes, so we will do a long nice long ride thru the vineyards this weekend.
The kids are good. I babysit a lot, so N&A can go out a bit. Introduced the kids to my favorite movie - "Pippi Longstocking". Amie was allowed to have a sleep over in my bed last weekend as well. I received little kicks all night and hardly slept, so I decided that was the first and last sleepover ;)
Lucas is a little " Miststück". But at least he starts saying " danke" and "bitte" to me! I also told the kids that my room is " the quiet zone" - only whispering is allowed. Works....
We baked cheese rolls the other night, painted our nails in all different colors for the school disco, had a little fashion show. So I am for sure not bored here.
The shopping here is terrible. Thanks god. The fashion is so behind here, I would not even call it fashion. It's worse than Germany... And that means a lot. The pricing is going through the roof. Unfortunately the dollar is so strong at the moment, it is killing me. A normal supermarket shopping is at least 200$, a muffin is 4.5$ and ice cream 3$ a scoop. It's unreal.
Had a little " red back spider" under Nat's desk today. She only spotted it by accident. One bite can kill you. Crazy. So I checked my bedroom straight away, but so far nothing...!
Booked my last flights, one to Vietnam and one to Bali. Strange to think this trip will have an end one day. Bit sad already. I feel so great and lucky to do this adventure. It was the best thing I could have done. Feel so energized and happy, have my smile back and just feel relaxed.
Thanks again for all those of you, who pushed me and supported me to do this trip and of course a big snoggy thanks to my man, who actually pushed me out the house and told me to go and enjoy myself and have a blast. xxx. Enough.....!
