The year 2013, as stated in the previous blog, was a year of challenges and become new things… But the changers were pleasant. The incidents in the year 2012 have affected my life in 2013, but I promised myself first to let things go. That was the key to the pleasant feeling of experiences in 2013. I taught myself not to hold on to that what has happened in the past year, but to let it go or leave things for what they are. I must say I’ve succeeded in it! Firstly, I myself reconcile to the fact that I will end up in a new environment and living in it will change. That was not easy, but I finally succeeded.
Besides the move in April, there are two special people who came into my life and I love them very much. One of them came with turbulence. On May 26, 2013, my ‘wonder’ niece, Archini, born. Her birth has changed our lives. Suddenly I felt responsible as a parent for a child. What a nice feeling. You have already concluded that it immediately clicked between us. In August I went to Holland to visit her. From the airport on , we were inseparable. I enjoyed every moment with her. Each day was remarkable and worth discussing. Now my ‘moshimoshi’, this is how I call her, is almost 7 months old. And who knows, she’ll visit me in the new year.

Then unexpectedly another special person came in my life and who’s also brought a lot of positive changes in my life. This story will be continued…. no end expected. Each day with this person is a new chapter in life!
In November I started with a course which is a follow-up and that should last two years. And with this new course the hectic life for at least a year has begun. Actually, I’m still not sure if it will put an end to the busy life of mine. I barely get the time to load pictures on my Flickr blog. But with this blog I’ll place some pictures taken by me this year are shot .
2014 will also be the year of a new home again…Actually, I am tired of moving and I hope this will be the last time in life.. A lot more is going to happen…
According to the hindu tradition, these black beads are for protection against the evil eye.
According to the Chinese calendar, we are about to enter the year of the horse. I’ve read that more people will follow their dreams and their heart. That is certainly a good sign . Even I am going to follow my dreams and heart in the new year. That is my only new year’s resolution!
During my holiday in Europe, I visited Rijksmuseum which’s reopened its doors this year. It has a great collection of Mediterraneanand Asian sculptures and artwork.
Berlin is a great city which is worth to visit. A mix of history, culture, liveliness, action, but also a modern lifestyle.
This was the third time of visiting Paris with the Euro Disney as the big attraction. Euro Disney is so not for me!
Happy New Year in advance!
