III. Report – EN

Dear partners, dear friends, family.

Greetings to you from the town Ceduna in South Australia by the ocean coast. We have completed 1987 km of our running expedition. I’m sorry to let you know that in the morning I had to visit a local hospital because of the health problems that persist past 5 days. Based on the medical examination air transport to a hospital in Adelaide was recommended to me. The reason is suspected appendicitis. After a long discussion with the doctor, we reject this possibility and I will undergo the subsequent professional examinations and possible surgery in Perth. So after signing the necessary papers we are leaving the emergency room.

Dear partners, dear friends, family.
