Here we are in the end… Leaving another “home” (Amsterdam), but this time heading for a different destination… My Dreams!
A mix of very different emotions cross my body.
Nostalgy: leaving the house that after one year become “home” with friends ringing the door belle at every time. Watching the living room so empty both on the walls, stripped of the travel photos that warmed them up till now, and empty of the friends that I had to say “see you soon”.
Love: for the power that this city transmitted to me during this year and a half, and for the beauty that floats all around its canals and streets.
Excitement: for the Big Adventureto begin and unlimited opportunities in front of me.
The “Plan” is to make a short stopover in Bergamo that will last a couple of weeks, the right time to say another “see you soon” to colleagues and friends, unpack, re-pack and spend some famility time with my parents, brothers and especially Giulia, my new little niece.
The stopover will be necessary also for some organization: bank, credit card, insurance… but also buy a proper backpack, my new house for the coming year! 🙂
The plane is taking off and while I physically detach from this land the question arise again: cut off the links and start again a new life or struggle to keep alive and active the “short” but promising good roots and friendship set in Amsterdam?
In the doubt my shining blue bicycle that drove me around the city in the last year will be here waiting for me in a friend’s box, ready to run wild again!
