„You have such a nice life, such a nice flat, such a nice husband, so nice kids“. I heard that some people stopped reading our blog, because „it’s not fair that some people are so happy, and some are not’. You know what? Bullshit.
Do you think that leaving my beloved Warsaw, my dear family, my very important friends and nice job, to move to Berlin was an easy decision? Do you think that divorcing (yes, I was married before) was an easy decision? Do you think that for Tom it was easy to say: move in (knowing that I’m moving to Berlin JUST because of him)?
But we took this risk. Of trying, of building something, even while speaking not mine and not his language. Our English was and is not perfect, and even if Poland and Germany are close to each other, there are also loads of cultural differences. But we wanted to try.
Travelling together was one of our first topics with Tom. None of us was before on any longer trip. Not talking about travelling for 6 months with a baby! But we wanted to try.
Last week I was coming back from Warsaw with the girls by train. There was no tickets anymore, so we risked to spend few long hours (with my tired kids) at the corridor of the train. I was a bit afraid but then I remember the post I wrote for you – about travelling by train with kids. And I thought: come on, can’t be that bad. And you know what? Girls were super nice, the controller sold us a cheaper ticket, some people made space for us and we spend lovely few hours making new friends (ok, those friends was Hanna’s job: „hey, who are you? why are you not smiling..? etc). We wanted to try (and to get faster to Tom).
This will sound simple, but I really believe in this trying. My god, in worst case, it will just not work out.
When I was younger, my biggest problem was ambition. I wanted to be the best in things. If I didn’t have a chance to be the best, I didn’t want to try. I was playing the guitar, then my boyfriend started, was much better, and I stopped. Super stupid, no? I’m still fighting with it. But last year I decided that I want to start flying and I went for a pole-dance course (you can see the picture). After not moving for many many years, I have no chance to be a master of the world. But it is so cool to try and to be able to do every month something new. So I’m trying.
The next thing, from the list of things I-want-to-do-in-next-life-so-why-shouldn’t-I-start-now is playing a saxophone. I will try. How many things on such a list do you have? And do you know they will probably never happen if you will not try?
I will try the saxophone but only after our next trip. Next trip… Another try! We always wanted to go as far as possible. AAaaaaaaa!! So we will try! Where? ;)))
Our first book is out!
We have published our first book (for now just in Polish:) about our Central America Trip.
