Day 1: Arriving to Stockholm
Thursday, 15 August 2013
It was around 1:30am when I took a shower and was finally ready to go to bed. We were to leave to the airport at 3am to give ourselves plenty of time before our flight to Sweden, so I got up around 2:15am having slept for only 45 minutes. Klara and Laura were on a few minutes after while myself and Sylwia were bustling about. They seemed to be very excited and itching to move on. We packed up and set off to the airport as planned.
Enjoying a journey
Saturday, 10 August 2013
I took a moment to reflect on the previous months, and I can’t get my head around the fact that, after months of anticipation, we have just a few more days left to our departure. All this started with one single spark of inspiration and grew from there. We added just enough focus, passion, discipline and determination to bring it to fruition. It took time to plan the journey and now we are coming to the final stage of our preparation.
Knocking on doors
Saturday, 27 July 2013
The story had begun in August 2009. That’s when the idea of my around the world trip had come to my mind. It’d got me pumped up for first few weeks or so. I really had loved the idea, but after a few weeks I’d started to realize what that would actually mean. Pretty soon all I felt had been not only excitement, but also loneliness and fear. Anything worth doing is filled with uncertainty. Following our dreams can be lonely. People may simply not understand our enthusiasm.
Being a traveller
Saturday, 13 July 2013
I wasn’t always a world traveller. My parents hadn’t travelled very much when I was a young boy. However, by the strange move of the Hand of the Fate, traveling has become my passion, and one of the beautiful things about it is the therapeutic impact it has on my life. Sure, there might be hard times on the road, but it’s then when I feel alive, absorbed, undistracted, and lost in the moment.
