On the 4th of August 2011, I packed my bags, took a few flights and I went to a new country far away from my family, my friends and leaving behind my comfort zone. I decided to go to a new country I had never been to an start a new adventure. Now after a year I can say I love living in Chile and I love Santiago. I have learned soooo much during this year. Time has past way too quick and it’s amazing to see how much I have lived in such a short time.
I feel like I have lived many new experiences, done many new things, learned so much in this new life experience. I made the right choice to come to Chile, I am happy of what it has thought me so far and I know the learning isn’t done yet.
I won’t lie, it hasn’t always been easy, there has been some really though moments, though decisions, lots of tears but you always learn something and I did. I got to know myself so much better, I have seen aspects of myself I didn’t know, some I like others not that much.
I have gotten to know a lot of new people, got to learn about other cultures, other life styles, …. I love the variety my life is surrounded with.
I am thankful to all the support, love and friendship I have received during this year.
Now it’s time to start a new year!
