In case you’re wondering why I’m writing a post at this hour… We’re in Australia!!!
OH – wait – have I not told you yet?
Well, Mikey and I left on Tuesday so I was super busy finishing up some projects, notifying my customers and packing before that. And on Tuesday morning, we had a really long flight from Zurich to Hong Kong and after that another really long flight to Brisbane with quite a bit of layover in between and didn’t arrive in Australia until Wednesday night. Mom & Dad came to pick Mikey & I up from the airport and took us to the airbnb place we’re staying at with 2 of my sisters. Since then, I’ve been keeping my work to an absolute minimum! Literally, I check my e-mails once in the morning and once at night and – if something urgent comes up – I’ll respond and work for no more than 30min but so far, I’ve been able to totally enjoy this “home away from home” with my boyfriend and family. Plus, I must admit, I really loved being in the air for so long without any internet connection because there’s currently so much going on (new projects coming up and the intern that will be starting once I arrive back home, …), I was able to perfectly use the time to collect my thoughts.
It’s Sunday morning 9:00 AM here and, in a bit, Dad will arrive back from his swim – you see: the reason all of us are here is because he qualified for the 70.3 IronMan World Championships which take place here today in 1 week! We’re all really excited to be a part of this and – now that I’ve acclimatized to the 8h time change – I can’t wait to keep you posted!!!
