Hi everyone!

I'm fed up with the hot weather here on Corsica. It's so hart to go running in the middle of the day, it's more a fight against the lack of water than good exercising. So yesterday I found out a very good way to "tease" the heat. :) Waking up at 5 o'clock in the morning and go running! Then either work directly after or go to sleep for another hour before work. And then I can sleep in the middle of the day when I think it's too hot to be outside. Don't you also like this idea? ;) So off I went, 5 am, this morning to go out in the "only" 25-degrees weather. It was still dark so I brought my headlamp. Unfourtunately the batteries were almost done so I coudln't run my usual trip, the one I used rto run in the middle of the day. So I went to the harbour and then along the beach. It was pretty dark at the beach but it worked anyway, and I didn't get wet. :) After I came back to the hotel I took a shower and then started to work at 6:30. It was a really nice start of my day. So I will countinue this for a while, running at 5 o'clock in the morning.
If anyone thinks this is a bad way of exercising, go running when you haven't eaten for about 12 hours and then not eat until two hours after the trip, please tell me. Cause I've heard that some people says that it's not good, and some people are doing it and they feel fine. I'm thankful for all the help I can get when it comes to exercising and other stuff that you do in life. :)

Time to recharge my batteries so I can go running more in the forest tomorrow.

Soon time to go to bed. Believe it or not, but I turned the lights off at 9:30 last night, probably record for this summer. It's soooo nice to go to bed early and then wake up early, I like that kind of life. Sometimes I work until 10:30 pm though, but that's life, and that's just for 2 months more!

I can't upload any pictures today cause I'm not using my own computer.

I soo wanna start counting the days until I'll go to Switzerland but I haven't booked the flight ticket yet so I can't. When will I go? Any suggestions? :)

Good night! It's 8:06 pm and almost sleeping time for me.

Have A Nice Day Tomorrow!

Big hugs from me

Last Friday the staff here at Hôtel Méditerranée went out for a few hours to do some activities together. First we climbed and then we went on a walk with questions along the way, so called Tipspromenad. The climbing was really fun, I really liked it! I had never done that before but I would like to do it more. The Tipspromenad was pretty difficult, but I won first price! I won a photo frame with two photos of me and then about 100 more photos from that day. I was very happy about the price!

Yesterday I went climbing Via Ferrata, it's when you climb and you fasten yourself all the time and you climp by holding onto metall things that are stuck in the mountain. I think I ad too high expectations or it was too easy for me cause I thought I would like it more than I actually did. But it was fun! Unfourtunately the hard one was closed due to thunder storms warning. On the way down from the top, we went Tyrotreking. It's a so called linbana (aerial cableway). It went pretty fast, high above the fround, there were quite a lot of them and they were pretty long so I really liked it!!!! Very fun! When we came down I went swimming in the melt water! So nice!! Cold and sweet water!! :) At the end of the day we went up to the start of Monte Cinto. Along the way there were some cows and calves that didn't want to move, :P cute ones. Up there we saw snow!!! It's pretty amazing that it can still be snow up there when it has been around 25 degrees for a long time now!

Today me and two guys from the staff went biking to the Revellata Peninsula. It was a very bumpy trip cause the roads over there are full of rocks, but it was fun and a bit hard! At the end of Revellata we were jumping, swimming and snorkeling in the water. It's cool there cause the water is very clear so you can see the bottom far away down. But I was standing on some cliffs in the water with some sharp seashells on and then there came a wave and swept me away in the water a little bit. It wasn't really dangerous, I just got a little bit scared (due to earlier experiences) and I hurt my foot on the sharp cliffs/seashells. It was bleeding a lot for a long time but I hope it will be good soon. "What doesn't break you only makes you strong, that's the secret!"

Now it's time to go to sleep!
See u laters alligators!

Yesterday I received an e-mail from École Suisse de Ski & Snowboard des Diablerets and they said that I can come back next winter and work the whole season!!! I'M SOO HAPPY!!! It's almost too good to be true. It's just INCREDIBLE that I'm gonna go there again and work with those people!! I wanna go there NOW cause I miss them A LOT! And it's soo much better in Les Diablerets than it is here. But it's just a few months left. I can't wait!!! Last night I almost couldn't sleep because I had so much energy cause I was so happy! :)
Miss you there in la Suisse!!!!!!!

Take care everyone in Swizerland and everywhere else!

Salut tout le monde!

Such an amazing start of my day!!! With that start, it's impossible to have a bad day! Now it's like that really again that I wanna be with other people... The "bad" thing is that I don't miss them less when I talk to them...

Today I've done almost just "good" stuff. I've cleaned the whole personal floor, hoovered my own room, done the laundry and then I went to a hairdresser to cut my hair. It was a special kind of hairdresser I think, maybe it was normal here though... But instead of using a pair of scissors, he used a shaver quite a lot. I guess that was quicker, so a pretty good idea. :) And then I was standing up for a bit when he cut my hair, I've never done that at a hairdresser before. But it didn't take long time, only 20 minutes. I really like the result. My hair is short now, I think he cut almost 10 cm... But I like my hair short, especially in the summer when it's warm outside. And I can tell you, it's very hot here! Why can't it just be winter or at least late autumn tomorrow and I can be in Switzerland???

That's all for now. Maybe I won't answer if you ask me any questions about my blogg, cause I just write what's in my mind for the moment... But ask me anyway and maybe I'll answer. :)

Today I was hiking for about 5 hours! I started at the hotel in the middle of the day and at first I walked up to a small church, Notre Dame de la Serra with a Madonna-statue. It's a very nice view from up there! It took about 40 minutes up there. Then I countinued to the Cross, Capu di a Veta. It was a pretty long and steep way up with a bit of climbing in the end. It was hard sometimes but it was really worth it, cause the view was awesome!!! I could see the whole Calvi and a long way from there too, for example the airport and the Revellata "half-island". It took about 1 hour and 20 minutes there from the church. I found a cool rock with a whole that I took a picture of. And it's still possible to see the snow on the mountains!!! The way down was a bit slippery sometimes but not too hard. I walked another way down so I didn't pass the church. I came to a road instead and then some houses. The road there was really long and I didn't know where it would end but it ended close to the supermarket, and I was happy about that cause I was really hungry. From the start at the hotel (including a fast trip to Super U, a supermarket) up to the cross and then down all the way to the other supermarket took 5 hours. It was a long and nice walk, neither too easy nor too hard. I really enjoyed it!

Some pictures from the walk:

Earlier in the day I went for my morning walk and then I did some "muscle training". So tomorrow I'm gonna rest my body, I think it needs that...

Good night everybody and sleep well! At least I'm gonna do that after this day! :)

Today I was on Canyoning. It was AWESOME!! So Fun!! For those who don't know what canyoning is I'm gonna explain that. You're wearing a wet suit, a plastic diaper, shoes and a helmet. Then you're walking in a river. Along the way there are jumps, slides and caves that you go through. The jumps were from 2 to about 8 meters high. I didn't do the second highest jump but the highest! :) I was standing there on the rock and saw the water about 8 meters underneath me. I was so scared but I know from before that I get angry with myself and regret it if I don't dare to do some things... And I knew I could do it cause everyone else could. The guide said to me, at 3 you'll jump. He started to count but I wasn't ready. So I swallowed once and when he started to count again and said 3 I jumped!! It was SOO COOL! I think I had some kind of sitting position in the air but that didn't really matter, cause it's ok to land in no matter what position in the water - believe me, I know. It was a little bit heavy to swim in shoes but not at all as heavy as with skiboots and skis. :P When we went underneath the rocks, it was like caves, I really missed the caving at Beacon Lodge in USA last year. Caving there was really fun, I love it! I especially miss the time when it was me and two gay guys and only two campers. We counsellors discussed who was the most "girly" one of us three. And I was the least one, after the two guys! That was such a good time!! Unfourtunately it's not possible to take pictures during the canyoning if you don't have a waterproof camera, and I don't. During the bus trip to and from the canyoning and a bit there I was one of two guides, on the bus I was guide alone! It was fun, my first "real" guide job. :)

After the canyoning I realised that I'm not made to be an "office girl", sitting at a desk inside all day long. So after these months I'm gonna do my best to get an outdoor and active job and keep that kind of job for all my life!

Since I couldn't take any pictures at the canyoning I'm gonna show some from my amazing time in Les Diablerets, last winter! The first one is La Quille, such a beautiful place with a soo cosy restaurant!! The second one is me, in the powder! :)

Btw they are playing Leva Livet with Gyllene Tider in the bar now! Great song, in Swedish... :P

After this great day I need some sleep, and tomorrow I'm going on a bike trip!
Bonne nuit!
Take care you and everybody else!!!
