In 2014, I visited 24 destinations: Dublin, London, New York, Zillertal, Geneva, Beijing, Shanghai, Stockholm, Berlin, Amsterdam, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Hammamet, Douz, Tokyo, Kyoto, Seoul, Bucharest, München, London 2, Athens, Prague, Paris, London 3.
There were 33 flight segments in 52 weeks. The total amount of money I spent in all of these trips was under 8000 Euro. That means an average of 333 Euro per trip which included flights, transportation, accommodation, food and quite a bit of shopping – clothes, BAGS, souvenirs. I had saved this money through my previous internships + part time jobs in Vienna when I was 21-22. At that time my family was supporting me financially in Vienna, but that is not the case anymore since starting to work for an American IT company you might have heard about.
The year took a turn in August during my trip through the Sahara desert, when I found out about my mom’s health problem. Then, I started to travel even more to show her the beauty of this world, even if she only sees it on Facebook.
I don’t know if we will ever grow to be 100 years old and frankly, I don’t even care. If every year from now on will be as beautiful as this one was, I will forever be grateful for the people I meet and the time I spend on this Earth. Thank you for sticking around and reading my words, even if they were sometimes scarce and painful. And if you haven’t stuck around to see everything I had to give, thank you for at least being part of a very special moment.
If you find me, of course 😉
