The night is young

The night is young and so are we

Dear blog,

You witnessed all the adventures I had to go through during 2012. I can't even explain how grateful I am for all I experienced. Unfortunately I have to say goodbye to 2012 and leave some things there. Or do I really have to leave them behind?
I tried climbing, horse riding, learnt scuba diving and got my university degree. I traveled twice to America and did several hikes along the Pacific coast. I tried new food, got promoted and learnt new things about myself. And what's more important I lived, I loved and I was happy.

This should be the last post about my American travels in 2012. I miss my friends. Thank you for my this amazing year!

The beginning

Some people worry about the world coming to an end tomorrow.

Unfortunately, I am not one of those people.

The idea of the end of the world, or survival against the odds and apocalypctic mayhem - it sounds a bit weird but it fills me with a morbid kind of interest.

Sometimes I even daydream about ways I might survive the apocalypse as I drift off to sleep at night.
And I already have a couple of survival plans.

Maybe normal people don't do this. But the Mayan calendar catastrophe has given me something real to focus my attention on.

And the first thing I think about is of course, my loved ones.
It might sound cheesy but what's the good of surviving the apocalypse if your dearest aren't with you? And where do you want to spend the last day if it was today?

Of course, fortunately, odds are nothing will happen on Friday.

It may be that the world's scientists are right and we really have nothing to fear.

Maybe Friday will be just like any other day.

Or maybe people will just have their personal little end of the world.

But if something still happens don't hesitate to come by.

I might have room for one more person in my ark.
