3 illnesses in less than 2 months have made me tired as hell, I've lost 6 kilos going from 86.5 to 80.5kg which could be seen as the only benefit from it all. I suffer an iron shortage and some liver disorders due to the viral infections I had, nothing serious but it is what makes me tired - all the time. Despite off that all I took myself for a cold sunrise walk through the snow. We had 10cm in just a few hours the day before yesterday and today was all clear and sunny, that would be too hard to miss.

 

Where ?

 

Almost all my photos are geotagged !!!
