I just realised that winter starts officially only on 21.12. – and I am already fed up with it now!
What always used to be a major complaining point about South-East Asia for me, that it turns dark all year around 6pm, has turned around into something very pleasant. Here in Germany it has been dark grey like on the verge of getting dark basically all day. And at a quarter to five pm it really got dark completely.
And on my way from the airport my beloved green valley just before my village in the Taunus hills near Frankfurt has turned grey and dark also. No more leaves on the trees. I am surrounded by pure misery! And unpleasant temperatures. Too cold to feel comfy in a leather jacket and too warm to wear a down jacket. In addition it rains most of the time.
Sh.t, why did I have to come back now? To make sure that Pirin Lodge is in perfect condition, that we have enough logs for the fireplaces, that our services are up to level and…and that we are ready to greet our apartment owners and their families and friends like our own family…
And I wish a lot of them will come – but there will be only few. At least I hope they appreciate what I am doing and how much I care. Because I certainly don’t make any money out of it. So, appreciation is the only satisfaction I am getting out of being the “janitor” at Pirin Lodge.
OK, we will see how things go in Bansko. At the moment, however, I would much rather fly back to Vietnam than to Bansko but… I never run from reality. In fact, I am the one to shape it around myself …
I will be in touch
