Packing up in Canberra

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

The firts phase of 2012 has come to an end. The winter base. The superlong camp down here in Canberra. All my belongings now have to a) fit into a 23kg max weight suitcase b) be posted back home c) recycled to Canberras junior girls or d) thrown away. The bin ended up filling, and […]

Beloved routine

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

It’s a bit remarkable that in a job that has so much freedom, I appreciate the routine. The arrival in Canberra has reintroduced this part of my life. A structured training program. Meeting times.

Back in Canberra

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Back in training, Canberra

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

Not sure if I am a Canberrian right now? I guess not quite yet as I’m still looking for somewhere to live… It’s a little bit frustrating as it was a lot harder to find that what we initially thought. Our drama is that we need a furnished place for a short lease. Not easy. […]
