Well, it turns out that I am not just writing for myself. First of all thank you Fi, for sending me a postcard and thinking of me. As said my thoughts are always with you.

Turns out my friends are not the only people reading my blogs, as my companies head office proved when I was asked about my web presence here, I think they were the third hit on my blog and for that I personally think they interpreted much to much into it.
Have to say that I am not sure if I should be delighted that someone is keeping an eye out for me and our companies reputation or if I should feel as if my rightful freedom of speech and opinion has been infringed - and just for the record: long working hours and strenuous work are not a negative thing, nor is the fact that you write about where you work (in my personal view at least).

To prove my point I would like to end my post by sending my best wishes to my previous employer, the Four Seasons Resort Whistler. - Heaven on earth for skiing and meeting loads of super people (especially 2 lovely friends from NZ who I will never forget). I still wish I could be back on the mountains for a month of skiing and fun. So this one is to all my friends out there. Thinking of you...

It is now about 4 months since I started my job with the new hotel & chain in Berlin. Opening up a new hotel has been a challenge for me and everyone involved. The long hours are starting to get more and more strenuous. Nevertheless I think that it is a good idea to try and hang in there for a little longer in the hope to complete the startup and learn some more even though I really miss the snow, the mountains, being able to ski and most importantly my friends back in Whistler.
