Sorry mum for not updating more frequently. Here's a bunch of photos for you to view just to make up for it.
I've just been very busy. Work, crankworx (a huge mountain bike festival in town), visa application (had to give up and hire a lawyer), hikes (ohhh I've been hiking so much and I love being up the mountain, and it's even better when I bring my fav boy-Carter the dog), and some dinner and drink nights. The visa is a huge stone in my heart, because I don't wanna be forced to leave my life, my everything!, here. However, it seems like it's heading in the right direction, towards a permanent visa. Fingers crossed my friends.
