It's almost time to leave...
A few days to go and then i’m leaving The Netherlands for around two months to go on a trip… to Ethiopia, Kenya and Qatar.
Last week i said goodbye to my classmates, my work colleagues and the lovely women i know from yoga! When i saw that people care about me, i realized that these moments are precious. Between other travelers we have a saying: “People are making your trip.” Well, people make your life at home awesome as well! :) Those moments that you are emotional and feel the love for the people, who you have to let go for a short period of time are never coming back. I tried to hold on, but it was slipping through my fingers.
At that moment my world stood still. Every second you live will never return and our life will definitely come to an end sooner or later. Living is learning to die every second! Even if you try to grab something you want to hold on, you will lose it after a while. So how do we live with the fact of knowing this? A good question to give some thoughts during this trip i would say.
Anyway… I’m leaving to Africa…
I don’t know if this is following my heart. But I do know that where ever you are you can be in your heart… And people from home can be in your heart as well. And even if it is sometimes hard for yourself to be with yourself, you always take yourself with you on a trip. Me to as well.. :)
I’m inviting through this first blog my real i to get along on my trip… To life openly and not seduce the fact that i’m dying every second of my life, and that i learn to live with it as a gentleman…
To live and travel as a gentleman is for me returning to the ‘space in my heart’ where i know that everything is going to be okay no matter what happens. This is a desire what i want even more than travelling. And it’s just so simple because i’m already there.
But sometimes i need a little reminder in the form off a question:
Who am I? The answer is between the silence in your thoughts.
Africa with love. Here i come…

Hoi Ari, Waar ga je naar toe in Afrika ? Kan ik me abonneren op je blog ?
Een vriend heeft een leuk project in Afrika. Ik stuur je nog een link.
