  • The more I read and think about this big adventure the more I have the feeling I should have a list. Not a shopping list or even a list of class members – I mean more or less a to-do list – but a very special one.  In the book, I’m actually reading, the author suggests doing at least 4 things a month on a world trip. So I have to find at least 48 crazy actions I`ll have to do on this trip.
    So if you have an Idea plz let me know.

      “Maybe it would be a good idea to take one of me per day as a picture diary??? (World)” Totally! Then we could witness how your hair grows and how you get sunburned and all that fun stuff B-)
      It would also be interesting from a scientific point of view. Like growing wiser and if it will show in your face. And yes I know, that “totally” and “like” make me sound like a 15 year old…
