4 years already

On the 1st of June 2004 I wrote the first entry on this blog. At first the only reason was to write about my trip to America, the land of limitless possibilities. Now, after four years I’m still writing new posts. This blog is still the same with new content every now and then, bt my life is completely different. A change from a 9 to 5 job to a life where I’m not sure what I will be doing tomorrow. A life with surprises, adventure, experiences and life-lessons.

I’ve got a Spanish girlfriend, I live in Gran Canaria and I speak a reasonable amount of Spanish. My brother is in a similar situation. He’s traveling the world, spending a great deal of time in south America. He has an Australian girlfriend and he’s thinking about moving to Australia. Maybe in a family thing, but if so, why have my parent been living in Noordwijkerhout all these years?

I am very happy with the experiences life brings me, the people I’ve met and the things I’ve learned. On the other hand it is sad I had to leave a part of my old life behind. No more Friday afternoon drinks, no more running every Tuesday, no more South African braai’s at Kamp’s place and no more visiting my parents in the weekends. It even stranger, I started cleaning during the week.

Hopefully I can continue this live a few more years. I’m full of good hope.
