Thanks to Caroline for an amazing start of the trip in Thailand, Nat& the Rickers gang for having me for so long and making me really feel part of the family, Ari'scha for putting me up & inviting me for dinners and having the funniest days, the Ruhl's for showing me more of Sydney and treating me like a special 1st guest in their new home, Verena for showing me her life in Vietnam, Rico for a great surf-fun-ride-food week in Bali and of course my Andy for making the last weeks of my trip super special and then taking me back home!
Thanks for all the support and the excitement also from my family and friends at home! Loved every skype chat, mms and email I received.
Amazing and great to know, which beautiful good friends I have around the world! Far away, but very close! Big effort to visit them all, but meant so much and so worth it!
This trip meant a lot to me and I honestly think & feel i have learned a lot.
I am more relaxed, open, confident to travel and be alone, happy and smily and have for sure changed to see things from a different perspective!
I have erased years of cooperate angst and have a fresh new mind!
Biggest thanks also to my former employee, who mad this whole trip even possible for me ...;)
