Back home - freezing

The contrast could not have been bigger this year: leaving Cape Town with 40°C that day and landing in misty Hamburg with -1°C. Back to reality for now. Unluckily the weather did not change that much until mid/end of February: it was cold, dark and snowy. So, I only sailed once in the past month, which was more like relieving my addiction: knowing that it is stupid, but the "pain" was bigger.  But I do not want to complain too much. Last week, I found pictures of me from two years ago lying in hospital with ARF (thx facebook for reminding me...not). I think that everything always happens for a reason. And that expereince taught me to be happy with the little things: being able to do so much sports (especially water sports), travelling and simply living without any limitations - health is priceless.
