Happy Birthday to me and my blog! My year away has ended and I have seen so much I didn’t even know where to start with this blog post but then I thought, why bother, life and especially life on the road is so fickle, so ever-changing and full of twists and turns and so I decided to make this blog post a huge summary of all the amazing things my crammed brain needs to chew on and sort out at some point.
I guess I am still shoeboxing it – not a good idea! So let’s get it out for me to digest and all the world to see how a year abroad can look like. And maybe, just maybe, it can inspire you to chase your own shenanigans in whatever form, make little changes to spice up your daily life or just provide a little entertainment. In any case, don’t forget to smile, it releases endorphins and you deserve to feel happy, too! Here goes.

What a fun recap of your blog’s birthday. I love the photographs and number summaries. How scary about being robbed at your hostel! Were you awake for it or did you wake up and find out?

Hi Rachel, you are right. Being robbed in my own room was certainly scary. I wasn’t awake and the person still said goodbye to all of us with a smirk before departing as if there was nothing.
Thanks for liking the photographs. I wasn’t quite sure how to squeeze them all in at first.^^
