Be happy and leave your so called comfortzone

Sometimes… I just would like to be alone. There are so many things I think about. After work hanging around with people in my house is usually great and makes a lot of fun and gives me a good feeling but sometimes I just need silence. This is one wonderful sideeffect while working and traveling. In the past times in Hanover I never took time for myself especially for just thinking about myself and doing nothing. I was always in a kind of selfrush and try do avoid „boring/uneffectively times“ but here I start grasping that this is a wonderful time and important for myself to answer my biggest question „What I really want„. I still can’t tell but it feels right like the way I do it…

What the tide could bring

Beside music and drumming my biggest topics are traveling and the thing so called comforzone(I really don’t like this word).
I’m now eight weeks here on the orchard and builded up my own comfortzone. In fact that means we have a stable Internet conection where I spend time in surfing and watching movies. I have a car and go shopping food and just be mobile and flexible. I bought a guitar and a drum practice pad, also I start playing once a week with a Drumteacher and joined a Basketballteam. And the facilities here are more than sufficent to have a good standard of life. It is exactly like I would life in Germany. All in all I’m happy about the situation and could easily work the next half of the year here, saving tousend’s of dollar and then enjoy the last weeks with a good stock of money in my pocket. But this is also my Issue…

Leave your cave

All over the Internet I read that leaving your comfortzone gives you true experiences and you change your life. If you ask experienced traveler everyobody would tell you the same and „leaving your comfortzone to explore yourself“ sound very mighty. I really agree with this. I’m not in NZ only for working and continuing my „easy life“. I know that I have to leave to discover more of this beautiful country and meet more people, allow strange and especially unknown things to happen. I want to do this because of my inner Attitude approaching new things.

Finding the balance of being happy in your comfortzone and drop yourself in unknown things is something you learn while traveling. This is what I really hope and what I believe. Another great advantage of traveling and I figured this out for myself is that you become more selfconfidend and even more you realize that everything is possible. That sounds very heroic but I mean it in the way you feel and see things.

Where will I travel to?

Where will I travel to?


Before I started my journey I thought traveling is soo big. So far I was in a hand full of european countrys for just hotel-allin-holdiay. Easy peasy. I knew Sydney, Wellngton, Dubai, Bankog only from the TV never thought that I would be there because it is so far away. On my way to NZ my plain delayed in Dubai in the middle of the night for three hours. In Sidney the gate changed from A17 to B4 so it was really close to reach the flight. While waiting in Bankog of my flight I was shopping at the airport and saw something about the airport. So what? All this experiences made me more selfconfident and I saw that I can do it on myself. On my flight back to Germany I will definetly stay some days in Sydney and somewhere in south east asia. SYDNEY… I only know Sydney from the news during the big sylvester firework at the harbour and now I can visit this place and touch the opera with my own finger just to realize that it is possible.

I’m happily exited and looking forward to the future in which way this trip change my point of view in traveling and maybe in some more…
