Back in Chiang Mai

It is Friday now and the kids and I have been in Chiang Mai for the last three nights. I try to get our sleeping habits into order, feed the family, do the washing, getting my work life started. I miss my wife. Not so much for the working part, but for the debriefing. Sharing about the experience in Switzerland. I know that for the first days in Switzerland it felt the same. I felt out of place. The same I feel here right now. Out of place. I guess I have not fully arrived yet.

So time to get the washing in and do the dishes 😉

Arrived in Singapore

We just arrived in Singapore on our journey back to Chiang Mai. It is half past twelve in the night for us, but here it is morning. We will probably be home around lunch time. The kids doing fine. They are just very tired. We left Lillian back in Switzerland for another week. We will miss her for sure.

My soul is still in Switzerland and hasn’t made the journey yet. I will miss the late Summer evenings, the wine, the Alps, the chocolate and all the friends. It feels weird being disconnected again. I am not allowed to think to much of it because traveling puts me in this twilight zone mood 🙂

Looking froward to our house and some sleep. Next time I will write from Chiang Mai. To everybody we know in Switzerland:" thanks for all the hospitality".

Last days in Switzerland

It is Friday and there are a view more days we will be in Switzerland. Four days ago my ibook gave up on me. I went to the MAC shop here in Bern. There are some start problems, but the data is still on the hard drive. I won’t be able to solve the problem before I go back to Thailand. I think again about buying a new Mac book. Mine is slowly but definitely falling apart. I just can’t decide. There are rumors of a new Mac book coming out soon.

Yesterday we were up in the mountains to Engstlenalp with our friends. It was just what we needed. I even went into the mountain lake. It was freezing cold and I thought my heart would stop pumping. I must say I like when the water is more the 25 degrees.
Later we went to a waterfall. Switzerland is soo beautiful it takes my breath away. Unfortunately I can’t post any photos yet because I use someone else’s computer.
