I think when someone or something special comes into your life unexpectedly, you definitely should grab it and hold on tightly. Take advantage of the situation and use it to create an adventure!
On of mine is when my best friend left for the US to go and work there for a whole year. I know this doesn’t sound as something positive, it was the opposite actually. Having to miss my best friend for a year, our talks, gossips, trips, movie nights, clubbing, drinking and most of all having fun and laughter. However, her contract stated that she had a 12 month working visa and a 1 month traveling visa.
When she told me, our brains instantly started planning a trip. She didn’t even have to ask me or tell me, it was obvious that that would be OUR 1 month trip. This is how we work, most of the time words aren’t even necessary to communicate.
Oke, so, the trip planning for the larger part took place via Skype. Another unusual thing I would say. Having such a large distance between us and discussing important decisions about our trip, but I think it made me even more excited about it.
What we decided was to book plane tickets, rent a car and meet up in San Francisco. That’s all. We knew the dates of the start and end of our trip. Knew the day we would start driving and when we had to hand in the car. The rest was totally blank.
The adventure could begin!
