Since the beginning of april I’ve been moving my stuff to my parents and sister. My sister lives on a farm with her husband and two kids. My brother in law helped me moving the bigger furniture, thanks for that!
At this moment I’m sitting on a beach chair in my mostly emply appartment and it is a good feeling. Moving out of my appartment feels like a big steps towards the start of my trip. Every weekend I’ve been packing stuff and moving it. It takes quite a lot of time but it’s a good, almost therapeutic way of moving my stuff. Normally you move to another place to live so you get your stuff right back. For me, I can’t tell exactly when I’m moving into another place. It could be in half a year, a year or? By moving the stuff all by myself I can say goodbye to it.
I have been throwing away a lot of stuff. There are quite a lot of things I haven’t used for at least two years. For example, beer glasses, a tea set I won in a game 10 years ago, an old microwave and I could go on and on. I’m gonna do this weekend probably two or three more trips with my stuff and next monday, May the first I will hand over my key to the estate agent and I will leave Assen.
In one and a half month I will board the plane that will take me to Honningsvag, which is very close to the Nordkapp. I’ve been talking with a fellow countryman who is leaving in a couple of weeks! You can follow him at his site: www.goshikes.nl.
