After two months travelling with my sister she returned to Germany yesterday and left me with lots of memories and a few useful things I might need while travelling further. Even if I am already used to travelling alone (and enjoy being alone once in a while) it is a weird feeling letting her go and making from now on all decisions on my own. Weird because after spending almost 24/7 over the last two months together a piece of you is missing. No one to help you decide what to eat, no one to join you at the dinner table…But as much as I will miss her, I am already looking forward to the next months. If travelling alone is good for one thing then that you can go at your own pase. After my time in Guatemala I had the idea to just “go with the flow”, meaning: spending time at one place as long as I like it there and moving further the moment I’ve seen enough. So for the next three months (until my older sister will join me in Australia) I will try to find the spot where I “belong” to stay for a while.
From 7th January I will join a project I found over helpx.net and work 20 hours a week for food and accommodation. Some guys bought a large house with fourteen bedrooms and are setting it up to look after refugees. The work includes small demolition work, decorating, gardening cleaning and setting up furniture etc..The house is close to the northern beaches of Sydney and if this wouldn’t been enough they have table tennis and table football there (I miss the table football matches with my colleagues). So if I am lucky I will already find my place to stay for a while, especially since the weather here in Sydney was perfect over the last days. Not to cold, not to hot just perfect to be outdoor and enjoy yourself in the sun. So even if it is raining since Nancy left (she claims she doesn’t have anything to do with that) I can still see myself staying here cause it is still not cold and the chances are good that it will get back to perfect again at the end of the week.
