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. If you want to help me this is my fundraising page: https://city2surf2013.everydayhero.com/au/antonio

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.

Accidental Full Triathlon

Yesterday I traveled to Newcastle with Donna and Leigh for the Triathlon. Gabi had a cold so she couldn’t come. We first drove to Morisset on Saturday and stayed and Leigh parents place. Leigh’s friend Thomas would do the cycling but it got cancelled. Leigh would do the swim but he injured his back so he couldn’t compete. Since the cycling was cancelled because of the roads had been wet by the huge swell, the running was extended to 6.

My First Triathlon

I have participated on my first Triathlon this month. It was a team effort, I have done the run and my friend Leigh did the swimming and cycling. This is an Enticer Triathlon and the distance are 350 meters swim, 8 km cycling and 2 km run. The ideia is to get people started. My next Triathlon will probably be on the 3rd of March and I will run again but this time 5 km, we are just waiting on a confirmation from the cyclist and Leigh will do the 750 meters swim this time.
