As a door closes

Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere. Paulo Coelho

I’m about to board the plane to New Zealand. I’ve been in Australia for exactly 2 years and it’s been a magnificent time. I’ve made many friends, tried out new things and collected a great amount of awesome memories. Yes, I’ve had my downs but the ups were much greater.

Yesterday’s farewell party was a big success.

I’m so glad I’ve got such amazing friends. I’d like to say thanks to all the people who made my stay in Australia so memorable. Especially:

Oliver: your sense of humor and attitude towards life always make me smile 🙂

Mazza: your lack of comprehension of the English language created many hilarious situations. Thanks for the laugh. 😀

Caroline, Barry, Michelle, Neil, Emma, Paul, Priit and Mihkel it was great knowing you all. I will always remember our trips to Seventeen Seventy and Bargara.

Peeter: you’re one of my best friends and will always be one. I’m glad we could travel around Australia and fondle our guy love.

Rachel:  It’s business time… Every now and then I find myself singing “I’m a lumberjack  and I’m OK…” Thank you for bringing so much laughter and joy into my life.

Benn: the best housemate ever. I loved stealing your food and will miss it a lot. I hope you will be able to get more sleep now that I’m not using the blender at 5AM anymore. Be kind to my guitar and make sure to sell all my shit. Love ya! Please send me food to New Zealand.

Emily: the first girl I’ve asked to marry me. Ever! If only Benn hadn’t been in the way. Maybe in another life 😀 I look forward to stealing your vegan ice-cream. Nom-nom-nom! You’re funny when you’re drunk 😀

My Australian family in Mackay: I’ll miss you Annette, William and Jon. You guys rock!

Estelle, Hugo, Michael: you were my best guests, I enjoyed hosting you and hope that I’ll meet you guys again some time somewhere

Diana and Heather: Princess and H, I will miss your laughter and positive uplifting vibe.

Chamara and Hazem: Was good knowing you guys, take care!

Yvonne: You’ve said more mean things to me than anybody else. Sometimes after talking to you I feel like crawling into a deep dark cold hole and never coming out. I’m amazed at all the things you can say and get away with it because you are so beautiful and innocent and good. I love you very much! 😀 I will miss your facial massages 🙂

Vinh: Petrol, you’re a good friend. I could always count on you. I will have my revenge in Twister!!! XOXO

Helen and Ian: thank you for introducing me to the world of Latin dancing. The lessons were always entertaining and something to look forward to. I will always remember when Helen and Maria danced kizomba… the hottest thing ever 😛

Most of all, I will miss Maria. You know what they say. In every man’s life there comes a time when he gets struck by the arrow of Cupid, by the love of God or the beauty of a woman. Sometimes this love brings thunder into your life and it brings a storm. Think about it… It was a magnificent storm. I cherished every moment. I never got enough of you, I was never bored, it was always difficult to say goodbye to you. You are perfect!  I loved dancing with you, holding you in my arms, caressing your hair, feeding you blueberries and kissing your cold blueberryblue lips. I’ll always remember that smile when I told you I loved you for the very first time. It. Was. Beautiful. PS: Yes, I will buy new clothes in New Zealand… only because I love you, not because I need any.

Thank you for the card everybody!!!

As the plane’s door closes I think of you all. Every one of you played an important role in my life, some more than others but that’s always the case. Thank you for sharing this journey with me. I’m not sure there I was heading and I still don’t. So maybe it’s a good thing this door is closing after all… Fuck you Australia! Here I come New Zealand!!!
