Survival of the fittest

I am tired.
Not only in a literal sense, but in an emotional sense.
Australia is tiring me. Or i should say sydney is tiring me.
It is a great place to make money, but it is like a dark abyss, where when once caught it keeps you in.
That might be just slightly exaggerated.
I feel like i am having a normal life at the moment.
I feel like the splendor of past days has… well passed.
Working like a dog.
Every day I wake up in the morning walk along the beach to work. As a cook in a cute little beach cafe at Tamarama Beach. I work for 8-9 h and walk back home.
It is a simple life, nothing fancy. Sleep, work, sleep.
I get great food and my workmates are nice and money is good so that i am planning to go to Thailand soon. 🙂
My car is going to be sold and i will be a free spirit once again 🙂

No pain no gain, or so they say.
My neck is healing well, it is annoying, but not painful.

Actually i am pretty good.
Every day i see the surfers chillin on the swell, i walk to work on the beautiful coastal walk.
and i get to make nice food for people while saving money.
I have been invited to go surfing once my neckbrace is off, lets say what the doctor says.
On wednesday i will see him, and hopefully take it off for good!
I am investing my time… i learn a lot about kitchens, and business, it is very interesting, but work is exhausting at the moment.
I think i miss that counterbalance.
I am living together with 3 chilean guys, but they havent been home because it was chilean national day, and they have been out partying all night 😀
I am looking forward to the next week.
So long
Ole

Demolition man in Sydney

Who remembers the 80ies movie Demolition Man with sylvester stallone?
Well i am demolition man, and i get 22.50 Per hour.
Ludo and moi arrived in sydney and finally found a job.
We had a weekend some hours south from sydney in a little surfer town called Mollymook. Where we visited friends of friends.
Huge waves! Seriously 3m high. We did our best to wrestle them down and body surf.  We even snatched a surfboard of a couple of girls to try the real deal.
It ended up to be waay harder than expected.
But after several loads of saltwater, i could stay on it in the vertical position. I have not the slightest idea how people stand up doing it.
But i will try again.
We also went prawn hunting, but we didn’t catch anything.
But it was fun to walk through ankle deep water, with underwater flashlights on sticks in a moonless night.
Ludo wrote a nice article with pictures.
I am pretty exhausted from work, and i cannot stop thinking about whats going on in Europe.
But i am well, with a cheap car and good company.
I will write again, maybe on the weekend.
So long Ole
