Back home for now....


I spent nearly 2 months at home after the accident recovering at home with my parents.
The concussion, bruises, scars, etc gradually faded and the surgeon in Melbourne gave my neck and back the OK soon enough. However the leg and ankle took their time to repair.
It was also a good chance to see my folks again, and they made it really easy for me the whole time! :-)


My insurance company were awesome. They replaced all of my clothes and damaged items - anything I could list, and paid all expenses without involving me at all.

After a lucky recovery and eventually feeling good, I decided to resume an active life starting at a detox, yoga and healing centre in Thailand....
