Five months ago I decided to stay in Belgium, a life changing decision. If you come from sunny destinations, 6 days a week working and hot temperatures, Belgium is the opposite. We are lucky to see the sun, 5 days a week working (yes!!) and sometimes very hot temperatures. There were two important reasons that kept me here. I felt that my family needs me more and I needed a little more stability in my life. I was looking for a job and a car but instaed I got a boyfriend. Later on I found a really nice job and a little Ford Fiesta as well.
One last adventure before things got back to normal. I went with a friend on a Surprisme holiday. Eight days of travelling through 3 countries. When we were at the airport of Poland, I started realizing things would get very different then I was used to. One last breath in Poland and off to Belgium. Two days later I started with my job. A normal job like everybody does but the most important a nice job. I can do the thing I really like in life and that is helping people. It’s maybe in a very different context but when I get a compliment, it makes a **** day good.
I thought I can handle it, I am used to change my life every year. Why not this year? It is harder then I thought it would be. I may look from the outside a very strong girl that can handle everything but sometimes I need my drama queen moments. The last five months went with ups and downs. Luckily more ups then downs! I got to know a lot of new people and found my old friends back. Being in Belgium has advantages, what about not try to explain in Spanish how to cut your hear? Some people cannot imagine how happy a person can be with two days off a week. Here in Belgium it is normal, from where I come not very normal. In the past I would have killed somebody in summer to have two days off.
Clue of the story I am still alive and kicking in Belgium, but travelling will always be a part of my heart. I left my heart in some parts of the world but in the end I lost my heart to a Belgian boy… ❤
