Seasonal packing- 8 DAYS

A day out in the field Life has been a rollercoaster lately, involving travelling around, working long hours and not much sleep. I am not complaining simply breathing out a little now...Work has been very busy, so much to do and finish before I leave on friday. I will miss the office greatly and Robert too. He is sort of a big brother for me...my boss...but luckily we will keep contact:) So I am officially finishing work on friday and organising a north african dinner on thursday for 14 people, everyone I have worked...

My last week-end in Soldotna. I might pop up to Anchorage on saturday night if I can catch a ride with Stef from work but nothing is sure...So, for once I am actually sitting in bed on a friday night, not out listening to bands or in bars chatting, or with friends...and it was disappointing at first then I came to realise how much I needed to have a night off... used the opportunity to vacuum the Buick 1985 and brush up on my english vocabulary..I am constantly learning words it is amasing... Oh Btw could some of you tell me what... [Lire la suite]

Matin pluvieux, ame heureuse

I have 2 weeks and a half left here. Time is running out & I might have to start planning (arghhh new word in my vocabulary) what, where and when with who...Oh well could start a list here but I would more likely bore you to death. Mmmm as the office is empty....Ole just called, he should be here at 9:30, and it is right now 8:35....So I guess I have plenty of time on my hands to start and finish my longlist of important things to do: Pack a box with all the books I bought (see under liens cherryh, I collect her old SF books...

The vision of your wildest dreams

I have just come back from my week-end and it was simply an experience I hadn't plan to turn the way it did. A good feeling, a great wedding, Nice people and generally just the possibility to enjoy nature at it's best... pics will say more so...

Account None

I am  feeling like I have no time ahead of me. I wanted to sum up for you my trip to Denal national park last week but between work and Social life, there has been absolutely no time to sit down and download pictures or write accounts of facts... So I guess I'll do that as soon as the weather gets bad.... I am leaving again for the entire wee-end and the same next week....Hope you're enjoying the last few days of summer as much as I do....

As I am sitting alone in the office, waiting for Tara's mum to come pick me up, I thought I could finish telling you my little week-end down by Kenai lake. Tents were sprawled all over the beach and bonfires started lighting up in the summer night. I paced up and down the shore, observing people and sat facing the water, listening to bits of conversation and human noises that contrasted strangely with the peaceful setting of mountains reflected in water. It was like being in a beehive, hundreds of noises, people, buzzing. A stage... [Lire la suite]

I am slowly, after 3 weeks here, getting accustomed to the place, the people but dread still fills my heart....I am not as outgoing as I thought myself capable of...This journey is just starting and at times I can see myself already giving up because it's too hard, I'm tired, I don't feel like making the effort. I wonder how I would be if I could spin around in an euphoria wave most days., I precise most days as it is not realistic. It is a weird feeling to have to make your own plans and arrangements by yourself, catter only for... [Lire la suite]

Inner Peace

(1) Une journee en attente, en exil, un petit spleen baudelerien me ronge tendrement, prend ma main et se glisse sous ma peau, sangsue bienfaisante qui me vide goutte a goutte et me laisse pantelante, prete a m’evanouir, manege d’enfant colores tourbillonant. Hier il a enfin fait une journee ensoleillees, une journees faites de nuages dores et de ciel bleute. J’en ai profitee pour faire un petit tour en kayak sur le lac en forme de haricot, j’ai perdue pied dans un monde de silence entre ciel et eau, le ciel reflete, ma... [Lire la suite]

Hi everyone. I made it. I am standing on alaskan ground, safe and sound. I had my first day of work today in the field, counting boats from 13 o'clock til 19:00 to measure the impacts of wake on bank erosion of the river. I have witnessed huge red and king salmons jumping out of the water and they are YUmmingly impressive. I can't wait to catch one mysself. We will be doing the same for the rest of the week and are getting up tomorrow at 6 :) We, means, me and Stephanie. I am staying with her and her boyfriend Tom for the next 10 days... [Lire la suite]
