my trip is coming to an end, I am flying back to Vienna tomorrow. I can’t believe I have been travelling fo ralmost 6 months because it seems that I had veen away for only a short time – I can still remember saying goodbye on the airport as if it was yesterday.
the last 5.5 months was the best time in my life and I didn’t have a single day that I regret. I also don’t regret having left Austria without having a “secure” job once I come back because then I would have never experienced what I have experienced in that time.
I met amazing people. learned about various cultures, experienced nature in a way I never dreamed was possible and crossed the limits that I had set so dar in my life (in terms of physical exercise and exploring nature all by myself).
I am very thankful and happy about every single experience I made and I want to thank all the people who supported me before and during my trip, who kept me company in their thoughts while I was travelling and also to all the amazing people whom I met during my trip and who enriched my experience enormously!
It is impossible to express or sum up what I feel about my trip but I am more than happy to share some thoughts and stories with all of those of you who are interested.
Ithanks again to everybody and also a very special thanks to:
