Hello everyone. Some of you may remember that I decided to take a temporary break from the site, somethimg that I wrote on my last blog. which was deleted anyway.
I felt that I needed to take a break, needed to pay attention to other things, not to mention I was tired from work at the hospital. I needed something extreme...I wanted to gain perspective on things, while not worrying about anything else.
What I didn't mention is that my vacation was almost there....and I wanted to do something else....something for myself....something that I always wanted to do, but never had the chance or the money for it.
I'm talking about going to another country. Sounds crazy ? Maybe.....but at my 35 years I think I've worked enough to give me this little pleasure. I know it sounds a little bit selfish...because I wanted to go alone, solo...all by myself. Just wanted to explore the world, another country...another culture...... alone.....
I've always dreamt with this since highschool.....back then my parents wouldn't have let me.....nor I had the money.
Last month was the right time......
What about my wife ? I opened myself and told her the truth about how I felt and what I needed. She said yes.
"Where are you going ? " she asked........
"Are you serious ?!" she said.........
Yes....I even have a friend there ! :o
"Who ? " she asked again
Mark Schutz. A friend from gamespot (best known as TTDog) and facebook !
"You know what you're doing ? "
Sounds crazy I know.....but I wanted to go to Europe and meet him.
I'll link you to his blog and his excellent writing skills for a detailed description of what happened there.
I had the most exciting and intense week in a long time.
I met a great human being..... excellent person with an awesome sense of humor, who beat me at pool........
Thanks for everything Mark, for taking your time and having the patience to attend this crazy not-so-old doctor. :)
One more thing...I'm not doing this again alone.....I'll have to go back tu UK with my wife someday.
