I’ve been thinking a lot lately. Different things stroke my mind. Why now? I guess primarily because the first part, the planed part of my Australia-Adventure is over. I still stay in Sydney till the end of march next year, however there’re a few changes. My time in language school is over of which I at first thought I’m more than happy about but it appears that it is also a loss regarding making friends, doing useful things. Don’t get me wrong, I rather stay in bed than getting up early to catch the train to school. Nonetheless, my morning started with the beautiful sight of Sydney Harbour and at the moment I can’t think of anything more beautiful and delighting.
I’m exciting to see what life and Sydney offers me next and I’m welcoming it more than willingly. Life also showed me once more how valuable friends are and how thankful we should be to have close friends. If it’s just your one very best friend or a whole bunch of people. Doesn’t matter as long as you have a person to share your experiences, thoughts and feelings with. How valuable are the most beautiful moments when you can’t share them? Making new friends is what this chapter of my life is called. Australia has been treating me good from the very first moment I touched it’s ground. People are nice, friendly, helpful, open. I love the lifestyle. Talking to strangers on the street, bus, train or where ever is just so normal, so right. You don’t back off, you enjoy a chat. You say hi and bye and go your way, probably never see that person again but what about the possibilities which those accidental meetings offer?
Talking to a new friend made me think about a lot of things which had been either just a given for me or I’ve always thought I knew exactly my opinion on. Travelling, tattoos, music, general lifestyle to name just a few. I find meeting people who affect the way you think the most valuable. It doesn’t mean you have to adapt their opinion but just get you out of your everyday narrow-minded-ness. This friend is just so different from me, different to everyone I’ve ever met before. Appreciate them.
