Home Sweet Home

Sunday, January 31st, 2010

I know you aren’t suppose to run away from your problems. But this last month since the accident has been really stressful and as I get nearer and nearer to home I feel like the problems of the last month are slowly melting away. I still need to figure out what to do with my […]

Gotta Have Goals

Friday, January 29th, 2010

It’s weird when something that has been such a big part of your life is over (other than sorting out my collarbone and what to do with my bike). So I have decided to follow in Ian’s path and come up with a set of new goals for the future.

Hangi and Home

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

I went to a traditional dinner and show and it turns out that they traditionally cooked like the maoris do in New Zealand by steaming food in a pit (see my blog entry when my family did a hangi). I had been looking forward to coming to Easter Island because I thought it being a […]

Alternative Healing

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

There isn’t really much to do on Easter Island when you can’t dive, snorkel, hire a car to drive or bicycle around so I decided to have a reki session with Diana. I was a little bit skeptical but actually I felt much better afterwards. Then in the afternoon we went to the place that […]

Couch Surfing Party

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

I was lucky enough to find Diana to couch surf with as accommodation is pretty expensive on Easter Island. Diana is a Swiss girl who had been studying alternative therapies while working at a bank and then gave it all up to come and become a healing practitioner on Easter Island. I have a lot […]
