My LDR story – Part IV

Click here for part one, part two and part three! We kept in touch after my return to Switzerland in July 2012. I told many friends about our story even though we ended up just being good friends because I thought the turn of events was incredible. We were shy strangers and the odds were against us but due to the actions I took, he actively reached out to me. If I hadn’t approached him, I would have ended up...

My LDR story – Part III

Click here for part 1  and here for part 2! Two weeks of school have gone by and nothing has happened.

My LDR story – Part I

August 2011 My second week of school in Uruguay. One evening we went to the school’s observatory to look through the telescope at the stars and planets.

Students of my class and the parallel class stood crammed around the telescope in the dark room. I couldn’t understand what the teacher was talking about. Some classmates bothered to explain the most necessary details to me but they...

Monthly Challenges: June

I can’t believe how time flies. May is over, my volunteer year is almost over, I’m leaving Germany in probably one week and soon I’m going to be in Uruguay again. It hasn’t sunk in until just now and now anxiousness is swallowing me up, paralysing me. It’s always the same – but I’ll leave that to another post and will just focus on breathing for now. Even though this month will be challenging enough I don’t want to miss the chance to challenge...
