Heeey, long time no see hm? Yes I’m still alive, just felt into rutine. ….waking up at 7 am, breakfast, 20 min drive by car, 15 min drive by ski tube, jump into uniform, 6 hours teaching kids how to ski, back to tube, back to car, shower, dinner, preparing lunch for the following day, doing the laundary or cleaning or going for a beer (wich is not very often!!!!!) and time to go to bed. Up till now I had one day off. OOOO lovely rutine. Hrrrrrr. The thing is weather condition is not really awesome as Australians say. Awesome awesome awesome and “no worries” “no worries” for every second word they use. Apparently this is the worst season in 15 years time and we got it. But, still an optimist. The old guys here (few of the instructors are already grandparents) say we might have a dump in august like in 1993 when they barely had a few centimetres of snow and they got 3 meters in august. People are kind and after a week or two of just private lessons with adults I asked for children for two reasons; first of all you have 6 h per day guaranteed and second they are funny, polite and with lots of energy. Here children have to ski and ski and ski and they learn during the way. Standing in front of the group and giving lectures is as important as it is in Slovenia. I find that awesome because they really get if faster than if you’re talking and talking and they don’t even listen. Of course they don’t they’re too young to listen ;)

Well, don’t know what you want to know…. Tell me ;)

Semi final PT-France

Well, here I am, 5 o'clock in the morning watching semi final Portugal France. It all went smooth from Frankfurt on. In Singapore they were driving me around the airport with mini car since my plane ticket got so complicated it needed extra work (I was flying with Adria first, than Lufthansa than Air Senegal than British Airways and I should only fly with Adria and Austrian airlines). My neighbour from Tolmin who lives in Sydney since 1974, picked me up at the airport and transferred me to the bus station (many thanks to my aunt who arranged that) and after six hours drive I was finally here and only 2 h after my skis were here as well (they got lost during the way but missed me too much ;)

And new page in my life has begun, starting with time difference. Why I am watching football at 5 o’clock in the morning? I just can’t sleep. ;) Time difference is huge, 8 hours and I decided for the easy way dealing with it. First day after coming here I went to bed in the early afternoon than stayed awake till 2 am, got up at 6, worked till 4 pm went to bed at 9 pm, got up at 5 am ;). I don’t know what’s happening but it looks like my night sleep is for my body’s point of view an afternoon sleep. It’s really funny waking up at 5, completely rest especially because I like to sleep long. It’s unbelievable but birds wake up later than me. Well Australian animal world is amazing anyway. On the way to work witch by car lasts 20 min (plus 20 min by ski tube) we meet 5-10 dead wombats. This are around 30 kg weight (they can supposedly get to 200 kg) animals, you normally see for the first time lying by the road dead on their backs with forelegs and hind legs lifted up to the air (imagine in what position your dog would go when would like you to scratch him, well in this position wombats go when they die because they are hit by car). Funny animals. There are of course lots of kangaroos jumping around, colourful birds (witch like to sleep long) and if you’re lucky emus (“Avstralski noj” wich you can supposedly find in Ljubljana zoological gardens). There are for sure more amazing animals around, but I guess I won’t see them in the next 3 months as long as I’ll stay in this ski resort. Time to go to work, I’ll post that in the afternoon and write some more about skiing itself next time.
