Happy 2013!

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

I started my new year, a few minutes after midnight, walking around on a beach in Mozambique, watching fireworks and telling everybody I saw that I am getting married this year (actually screaming it, as my voice is gone, still is). I then proceeded to tell the listener how the day before I was getting married next year, but now its this year. And I was all a butterflied and admitted that the thought scared me.

This joyful and honest confession was probably fueled by impenetrable heat of about 39°C (102F);  Red Bull; a local rum called Tipo Tinto, mixed with Raspberry, which in turn made a potent drink called R&R and all the other arbitrary shots that were shoved in my hands by passersby. It rocked!

There are no pictures of the celebrations, unfortunately, as I left our camera at the lodge. Good thing though, because our bag, with clothes and drinks were stolen as soon as we took our eyes of it.

I am not one for resolutions, as I mainly never stick to them, but this year, I will try to be nicer, more patient, happier and grateful for everything I have. I will also, with wedding bells ringing, try (and succeed) to lose weight while also taking on a healthier and more active lifestyle.

Happy 2013 everybody! May it be brilliant, filled with love, joy, adventure and all things your heart desire!
Live this year awesomely!
