I´m not too late yet, right? I´ve been wanting to write about my passed year for a while now, but the new year started with high speed. 2014 was an adventure. I can see now that it was probably one of the best years in my life. It feels like a lifetime of happiness. I have had amazing adventures and seen places that I haven´t even dreamed about. Yet there has been so much stress and worrying. One of my biggest weakness is that I over think everything, I have horrible scenarios running around in my head and it stops me to be happy with what I have at the moment. And I have a lot. This is also one of my new years resolutions: worry less, enjoy more.
My year in 2014 was like that:
In January I spent some quality time with my best friend in Dusseldorf.
Even though the winter was warm and not so snowy, I managed to learn a bit snow boarding and enjoyed it a lot.
February passed quickly and I have no idea what I did on that month. Me and my boyfriend focused a lot on travel planning as in March we had our first long-distance and longer in time period trip together.
March was the month where my life dream came true. We went to Brazil! Seriously, I dreamed so much about it. And it was even better than I expected. Nothing´s perfect so I also managed to got lost in the city with my roller-taxi driver and we got lost in the dark rainforest together with my guy, but boy was it all worth it! Perfect time, perfect trip, something I will treasure the rest of my life (sorry for all this cheesiness)
April was a busy month. I had two trips. First with my mother to Vienna, which is such a lovely city and we got to enjoy first spring weather and spending time together.
In the end of the month I had a capoeira workshop in Lisbon. It reminded me how much I actually love this sport, but unfortunately life got in the way later on and my capoeira trainings are not going good at all lately. Meaning that I don´t go to my capoeira trainings lately.
Summer started early this year and was warm and beautiful. I was rather busy with work in summer and didn´t focus on traveling, but I got to do something i have been wanting to do for many years now: to spend the summer in Estonia! It is such a beautiful yet short time, but I got to take the best of it. We started to make some small trips already in May and enjoyed time spent with friends
More trips in Estonia followed! I joined traffic school and began my journey to get the driving license. this journey is still continuing.
the whole country celebrated the song festival. It is a very strong national tradition and I have also been part of the biggest choir, this time I was in the audience. My boyfriend surprised me also with the tickets to the dance festival.
We also had a trip to Saaremaa, the biggest island in Estonia
After a long and busy summer we spent a long weekend in Stuttgart and saw Blink182 live
Another month that was kinda crazy with planning. We ended up attending a wedding in Madrid, spent some time in Malaga, visited friends in Tarifa and spent time with family in Torino
Was full of birthday celebrations. I felt happy and loved.
In November we had the big trip to Japan! I didn´t have many expectations, but Japan turned out to be one of my favorite destinations. It was a very adventurous time in many ways.
One of the craziest months in the year. I was so stressed, worked hard for school and was ready to explode all the time. I also did explode more than once. Around Christmas time we had some grief in my family, we lost a relative and our family dog. But it all turned out good. It ended up being one of the best Christmas holidays I have had for years, after all the stress I spent time with family, friends and my super supportive boyfriend just the way I wanted.
And now I´m ready for new adventure, new challenges and all the happiness that 2015 has for me. Bring it on!
