2 years… its been 2 years since I had my big departure… 2 years since I wished my family and friends farewell and made the big jump to south-east Asia

It have been 2 extraordinary years, honestly.

If one would ask me if I regret my decision, then the answer would be one of those rare occasions in my life when I could tell with 100% confidence this answer:


I am happy for every minute which has been given to me here, may have it been sad or happy as the extremes showed they can be here.

Do I miss my family and friends? Yes.

Simply put, of course I miss my family and friends, and I will be happy to see them again.

But.. Would I change the last 2 years? No..

as simply put as before, I chose this life. I chose a life between the continents.. Not being here, not being there. And I am aware that my way of life will be passed on to my children… The only thing I ask for is that I hope that my children will forgive me for that heritage… that they wont be here and wont be there.. world citizens i guess…

Oh well, next week we will go to Manila (again) to visit the Embassy to do our last leg in this year long race. We will file for the Visa for Mai and Books. The goal is to move to Germany this summer, to continue our story there. 5 years is the goal, and after that heaven knows where we will go. The world is big, and it is open to us.

The only thing.. the only thing I missed here.. were the countless visitors from europe. You guys have another chance in about 5 years… don’t disappoint me ;)

    Und doch klingt das etwas nach Wehmut und Sehnsüchte…

    Mehr We(h)rmut den Wehmut ;) Aber um Sehnsüchte geht es doch immer, mans sehnt sich immer nach dem was man nicht hat… Ist ne sucht, kann ich dir sagen :)

    Na da will ich dir und deiner Familie mal fest die Daumen drücken, dass das mit dem Visum klappt. Sollte eigentlich kein Problem sein. Ich freu mich echt wahnsinnig, dich wieder zu sehen hier in DE. Bis dann.
