Albany 26.11

We left Margaret River pretty early on saturday morning. Our plan was to go to both the Jewel cave and Hamelin bay, where you are most likely to see the Sting rays as they swim really close to the beah.   The morning offered a light shower and overcast, so bringing a bikini to the […]

Margaret River 24.11

The day after we headed down to Margaret River where tastings were on the agenda. We started off with Chocolate tasting at Margaret River Chocolate factory, then we went to the vinyard next door for wine tasting. On our way to the next vinyard we passed a factory for nuts and muesli and found ourselves […]

Dunsborough 23.11

On thursday we had planned to get up early, drive out to the Lighthouse outside Dunsborough to see if there were any whales in sight. But because we had a slow morning, we decided to go straight on a while watching tour. Ever since I saw the documentary in New York about Humpback whales I […]

WA roadtrip and Busselton 22.11

After a good nights sleep we woke up and straight away started making plans. We booked our rental car and made a rough plan how we would drive for the next 6 days in order to get as much ground covered as possible.   Around 11am we headed towards the city to pick up our […]

WA 21.11

Arriving in Western Australia. This has been on my list for a long time. The most isolated city in the whole world, apperently. I think it’s about 200km to the nearest big city, which is Adelaide.   Arriving at the airport, I had a 90 min wait for Val. We got to know each other […]

Back in Auckland 20-21.11

After Vipassana, I got a ride back to the city with the same shuttle service that I had used to get to the retreat. I went straight to the hostel and waited for check in. As I had a few hours before it was time I sat down and used the wifi to call home […]

New plans taking form 30.11

On day 2 the airlines was still not flying people to Bali, only out of there. That meant that experts had made a decision based on facts at hand saying the situation was still not safe enough. The airlines were about one week behind in flying people out. Would they be able to finish that […]

Vipassana 08-19.11

The first day after I had gotten back to Auckland from the Vipassana my mind was all groggy. Emotions coming from everywhere and it didn’t take much for the tears to start falling. I felt SO much gratitude to have been given the opportunity to learn the technique, to have taken the time for myself […]

Update 30.11

It has been very quiet for a while here. First it was the 10 days of meditation, then I spent the days planning for my trip to Perth, and when in Perth it was road trip and little, if any, wifi connection. THe last two days have been filled with planning, due to the volcanic […]
