3 weeks of madness and randomness. of course many things were gone unrecorded, but these are some snippets of what happened :D
it stands for OPEN WATER DIVE!!! whooooooo!!!!
I KNOW!!! Finally another tick from my bucket list (even though now Advanced Open Water Dive has been added to the list ;p) I am sooo so so grateful for this year, that I get to do so many interesting things that are not related with school… xp
So, after postponing it for ages, I decided to get myself into that underwater world :) I have always wanted to dive, but many things kept holding me back. Things like “no one to go with”, “it’s so scary”, “it looks so difficult and dangerous”, and all other kinds of what-ifs (you know what I mean!)
Things changed last year, when I was so lucky to meet this lady in her 60s, whom I admire so much! I met through CouchSurfing in Dresden! (yea, CouchSurfing!!!) She told me that she just did her OWD course in 2011! I was so ashamed seeing how she’s way more energetic and ‘younger’ than I am. She went rock climbing just a few years ago (!!!) and she climbed the tree in her garden to pick up the cherries (because she doesn’t have any ladder, she said) and she cycles to work everyday… Can you imagine now what kind of woman we are dealing with here? and you still dare to say that you’re young and lively and adventurous? think again!! ;)
ENDLICCHHHH!!! :D (Well, I’ve got a mixed feeling on this, but for the time being, its a “yessssss!!!”)
I still haven’t felt much of the effect YET, as it still feels like any other holiday… But I’m pretty sure, sooner or later, things will be so different! (5/6 of my life have been spent as a student!!! that’s something!)
Anyway, before everything else (read: working), I finally get the chance to discover a little bit of South East Asia (like, finally!) :D and I am so so so excited! I have always wanted to do this and it’s now time for CAMBODIA and VIETNAM!!! awesomeness!
I’ll be traveling with 3 other crazy buddies, so I’m preparing myself for the most random things to happen along the way ;)
*the two ugly travelers are ready too!*
gotta explore more and more of south east asia :)
