(Sydney International) I am currently waiting for my flight that will take me across the ocean and all the way back to Europe. It has become time to depart and say goodbye to Australia and everything that it has offered me.
It is with sadness but also joy that I’m about to leave this amazing country. One year ago I jumped on an airplane heading east, without knowing a lot about what was to meet me in this country down under. Now a year later, I’m on my way back again. It is hard to put words on the feelings that I am feeling in this very moment, but I am sure that any person who have experienced to say goodbye knows exactly which feeling I am talking about.
I came to Australia with no expectations, and am leaving with none. Australia turned out to be an adventure of a life time, and I can only hope that my future journey will bring me as much happiness and joy as Australia did.
I would like to thank all the people that made this adventure a unique experience. Without you it would not have been the same. Remember: “It is not about the places you see, it is about who you see them with.“
I am sure that I will be back with deeper and better reflections on all the things that I have learned from Australia, but for now I will focus on the flight ahead of me. One more time, thank you everyone.
