I woke up at 7:30 this morning. Comfortably peckish, not too tired, back to normal. Hopefully yesterday’s early craze was just a little body adjustment, getting used to the healthy meals again. Presumably not that surprising when I replaced the stuffing-my-face-with-pretty-much-anything-moving. I was quite homesick after arriving to Australia, you know? But really happy as well, which also makes me eat a lot. My relationship with food can be quite complicated sometimes. My mood too.
I made it till morning. I honestly can’t remember a night when I would go to bed this hungry. It took me a while to focus my mind on something else and finally fell asleep. Am I really snacking that much so I don’t feel hungry normally? I mean, I do usually eat about five meals a day, but they are quite small, you know? Man, is this Whole30 thing already doing something to my body after one day or is it just in my head?
This is it. I’m finally doing my first Whole30. And I think I’m gonna die this month. I mean, I would consider my diet pretty healthy. But then, I eat almost everything, even if I know that sometimes I don’t feel the best after certain meals. But chocolate, you know. And wine. And the occasional pasta.
Bangkok. You will most likely love it or you will hate it. There are no more feelings than that for most travellers. Many people told me not to worry about Bangkok when travelling to Thailand and don’t spend too much time there because I won’t like it, as it is busy and chaotic, bustling with people, full of smells and the traffic there is never ending. And they were right about it. Except one fact. I loved it!
Many of the mountain resorts these days offer much more than skiing/snowboarding. And Kitzsteinhorn, Kaprun we’ve currently visited is definitely one of them. Everyday, every season they offer comprehensive services for demanding customers. Ready for glacier skiing? Or having a drink in an ice igloo? Maybe you prefer to relax in a wellness with a stunning view? Bathing in salty water under the stars? And what about exploring the beauty of the mountains from above in a balloon?
Anyone who plans a visit to the lakes of The Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada, probably heard about Lake Louise or Moraine Lake. Of course they are beyond beautiful and shouldn’t be skipped by. But then there is this one overlooked treasure which should rightfully stand alongside. Bow Lake with the astonishing Simpson’s Num-Ti-Jah Lodge.
Exactly two months from now I’ll be somewhere on my way to a new life. I’ll be moving from a little town in the hearth of Europe to a city which is bustling with 2 million people and happens to be on the other side of the world. I’ll be leaving almost everything I have and know to meet the unknown and start again. Start from scratch.
