if you read my last post you might think that I have been in Rehoboth since the 27th August.
Instead I’m still at home in Leivi.
I’m not good at keeping things to myself. I prefer to share immediately what has happened.
On Monday, the 26th August, I left home with my dad after packing my 30 kg rucksack. I said goodbye to my friends, my mum, my brother and to the people I love, with tears in my eyes.
After 10 hours of driving, we arrived in Frankfurt where we slept in a cosy little hotel.
The next morning, I woke up really excited and I did a few last minute tasks before going to the Frankfurt international airport, where our flight was leaving at 5:35 pm.
I knew that my visa hadn’t arrived yet, but I hoped it would before the check-in closed.
Sadly, after a lot of excitement all morning long, I received a SMS; I wouldn’t have left that day, along with three other people of our group who were also supposed to go to Namibia.
I was upset, but it was just bad luck and no one was at fault.
The organisation decided to wait for our Visa before to re-booking a new flight.
I decided to travel around the north of Germany and to visit my relatives who live there.
After travelling from Frankfurt to Kassel, then Brema and finally to the north coast, I decided to visit my aunt in Copenaghen. I still hadn’t heard any news about my visa.
After ten days, I was happy about my journey. I had met lot of new and interesting people, saw a lot of new places and ate new and delicious meals, but the time had come to go home.
It was for me very difficult to see my family and my friends again. I had cried and it had been very sad to leave them all. I wasn’t ready to do it again.
But there was no way around it.
I couldn’t travel until my visa came; it was becoming too expensive.
I arrived at home Wednesday night. I must admit that I was very happy to see my mum again and to sleep in my bed.
It was also a pleasure to see my friends and my boyfriend again.
Now I’m crossing my fingers that my visa will arrive soon. You can do it for me, too. Namibia is waiting for me.
I’ll write as soon as I have news.
