Every year in August in Sydney there is the City2Surf race. It is a running event that start in the city center and goes to the Bondi Beach. The route is 14km long and the event is really big. This year it was my first time and I ran with another 85 thousands people. There are people running in costumes, wheelchairs, blind people with buddies and all age groups. It was the most amazing event that I ever participate and I really like it.


I will be running the City2Surf next month for the first time. I have decided to make the things a little bit more fun and I am fundraising. I want to help to make a difference for the Cancer Council NSW an institution that does cancer research.

I am 36.

This month I have turned 36 years old. We had a small gathering at home. Anna, Thomas, Tati, Matthias, Emily, Helen and Peter. Gabi baked some pão de queijo and we bought a chocolate cake to celebrate. It was a really nice and special afternoon.


This month Gabi and I babysat Jazz a Guinea Pig from Anna’s and Thomas school. She is an adorable little being. She loves grass and Gabi made sure that she had plenty. We even took her to see an exotics animal vet because she was squeaking while peeing, but she was fine. It was a lovely 15 days and she will be missing by both of us.

9 years in Australia

Today has been 9 years since I arrived in Australia for the first time. It is unbelievable how time flies I don’t feel I have been here for that long. One thing though is true, I still love to live here. I found my old passport and took a picture to post and document the occasion here.
