"My mother passed away on the 15th of October. She was 65 years old, too young to die. But I guess we always think our parents are too young to die. Even though I didn't see my mother very often I loved to talk to her on the phone. She was very important for our family. I noticed this now more than before. She brought some balance in a very complicated family! Nobody else in our family can do that.
She was a very proud and not open person. She was always worried about what people would think about our family problems. The funny thing is when I was in Brazil in October I found out that the last months she changed completely
Andrea left for a month and came back only on the 12th of November while I kept myself busy with organizing everything to leave for 5 months, selling the camper and our poor little Smart. As we want travel like we did last year through Europe in the months of June until August we thought we could try this by buying a VW Eos and small and cute little Kip caravan. After all that selling and buying we were also organized for our Europ trip when we would come back from Asia and now ready to leave.
Andrea flew back from Rio via Amsterdam and I went to Alkmaar on the 11th so I could see my brother, be with him a couple of nice hours and go to the restaurant together as he was there just the Friday before flying back to Spain and to go to Michel's birthday party which was real nice.
Andrea arrived on the 12th and my mothers birthday was on the 13th.
This time we had found a real good ticket with Fin air on the 14th so after having taken a taxi to the train station we took the "special" train (which is more expensive and a dirty horror train full and without space to put your luggage) from Antwerp directly to Zaventem. Our flight to Helsinki left at 13:05 with our connecting flight to Bangkok at 18:00 so pretty good.fe
