I do not think I had a dream of where I would be.

I never thought I would be in Austria.

Well, the last place on earth I ever imagined myself living would have been Switzerland!

I thought I was destined to be in a huge old farmhouse out in the middle of nowhere somewhere in South Africa ..... hens scratching in the dust, water pumped by windmill, surviving droughts and dust storms ......surrounded by extended family, with me sitting there big and fat and contented acting the part of Matriarch like an old elephant.... All the family heirlooms gathering dust up in the attic. Where the telephone is one of those big black wind-up things that all the neighbors listen in to your calls.

And here I am, okay I got slightly more than my 22kg of luggage now ..... whizzing around the village on my bike, living in a consumer society extrordinaire......(and part of this internet singles site!!!) Just goes to show hey? you just never know where you gonna end up!

Never thought i'd be here. But when i was 14, my uncle said i needed to fly.
My friend today said: If there is anything you'd like to leave here, something you'd feel sad about thowing out, leave it with me and i'll keep it until you come back. The way she's so sure and positive about me coming back moves me.
Back to Lisbon in less than 2 weeks, plan to learn intensive Dutch there...and come back here and try...
Will i have to sign an employment contract in Lisbon that states that i must stay in for more than 2 years? dunno all i know is that no matter how much great the money will be in Lisbon, i'm willing to leave it behind...and come back here. I want the Dutch way of living for myself. Full stop. I even say to myself: "even if i have to study Dutch law- bachelors again". See what i mean?
Lets hope i'm strong enough.

Your uncle was right! "Learning to Fly" is what happens when you set out on your own .... You always will find the strength to Fly! Good for you Cristina!thumbs up
