Today, I actually didn’t do much, but I couldn’t get myself to write the blog earlier. Although I still have more material (and yes, also more pictures =) ), I rather slept or enjoyed the sun. Throughout the day, I thought about what I will write today, but besides writing more about my experiences here in Chillán, I didn’t feel like writing about something else. And as it takes a bit more time to write a travel blog entry, I decided to write about how I feel.
This decision was made after sitting for quite a while in front of my laptop, thinking about a different topic. However, I don’t feel like writing about something else, or something profound. I think during the last couple of days, I started to think less and instead put my focus on experiences. To give an example: I love to read, and I brought several books, I’d planned to read, but instead, I enjoy the sun or talking to my friend or just doing nothing. Moreover, I don’t feel that I “have to do” something.
It is actually a very nice feeling. I feel peaceful and balanced. I come to appreciate the value of being in a completely different environment. I think, being in Berlin with my parents or even being in Germany, or Europe just feels to normal for me. Maybe this hinders me from breaking out of my usual patterns and behaviors. Now that I am in Chile, my everyday life seems to not have traveled with me, which gives me a very nice and very much needed break.
I am writing this at 4:20 am German time. I know that my mom will get up in ten minutes. I hope she is happy as the rest of my family. I also hope that you, the one who reads this, are also happy!
Have a wonderful day and take care!
