Happy New Year 2014

Happy New Year 2014

I would just like to take the opportunity to wish everybody a Happy New Year 2014. 

2013 was probably the most different I have done in a long time. 
  • I left my job, which was about time - I needed to think things over and consider what new and interesting challenges I wanted to get myself involved in. Thanks to great colleagues I stayed on but maybe longer than I had planned for... Most people know how easy it is to stick to something just because you get too comfortable. 
  • I got rid of a LOT of things and realised how liberating it is; No more dragging around old things just because they once were important to someone else but in reality aren't all that important to me. It is good to stop being a pack rat - we have enough things as it is... Save memories but only those who matter (and preferably those who take very little space). And besides charity organisations are much happier about your stuff than your basement or attic ever will be. 
  • I started studying and travelling. At times a somewhat tough task, but fun. 
  • I moved to Taiwan, a beautiful and interesting country with a lot of amazing people.
  • I started to learn Chinese. 
  • I improved my French - two surfing trips helped with that but also ending up in Taichung, Taiwan, a city with a very big french/french speaking community.

In short; You can say I did what I had set out to do: I increased my comfort zone. 

I also gave myself a lot of time to think about things, and change other things around. 

2013 was a very interesting year.

Now I am very curious to see what 2014 has to offer! 

Hope you continue to follow me on my path! 

For 2014 I promise a lot of articles as well as shorter blog posts not just about the road I am on right now but also about travels and trips I did in the past as well as things I want to do in the future. 
Come and join me - it will be an interesting route...
