Round the Globe?

I really like to travel. I like to see new places. I love when I see cities in movies I have visited, myself. But I haven’t travelled that much. For the most part of my life, I haven’t gone far from home. It is just a few years ago I went outside the part of the World I live in (Europe) to see parts of Asia and North America.

I don’t have the time or money to see every country in the World. But I have now decided that I will try to reach every one of the seven continents on this Globe. Up until now I have been in three of them. Hopefully I will have visited three more within a year from now. At that time – if everything goes as planned – I may be planning a trip to the one remaining part of this World, I still haven’t seen.

… At least that is the plan.


A few months ago I wrote that I had been “sold” by my company. I – and some of my colleagues – had to start in another firm. Of course it was a chock to get such news. And in the first days, we could only see all the negative things about this job change. After these first days, it began to settle. We got used to the idea, that within three months, we would be switching companies. The positive sides of the transfer started to push the negative thoughts away: With a new company come new possibilities.

I have now started in the new firm. I have been well received, and the receiving firm has made an effort to make me feel welcome. I have felt welcome, and I am glad to be where I am now.

Not everything is in place yet. But I am sure it will be.
