Have you ever been in a situation where you meet someone randomly, and just know that together you can accomplish so many great things and share so many extraordinary stories with the world but the only thing that is bothering you is if you were destined to meet those people or was it just a coincidence?
As John Lenon once said, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” cause he could never have imagined himself beeing in a situation where he was couch surfing in the Southern side of the Netherlands with a couple of strangers, not knowing what’s going to happen tomorrow and honestly not feeling sorry about it. Let’s just face it – everything in life is about stories, and if you got plenty then you have lived your life to the fullest and currently this our goal. Experience, inspire, do it for the story and never regret it but before we drown into cliche quotes overused in Tumblr let me take you back to where it all started.
Three weeks ago in the Netherlands Richard and a someone he trusts decided to quit their jobs which were not as they expected, so they packed their bags and left the place. Since they knew just one guy in the foreign work position which was provided to them and he’s gone, they had to realize that they need to leave that place as soon as possible. A few moments later they were lost in the streets that were drenched and cold, so the only thing they knew was that they need to leave a countryside and go to a bigger city – Eindhoven. Train rides in foreign countries can be scary, but the Southern Metropole was welcoming, and the first thing they did was burying their bags as deep as possible in train stations lockers which were designed for not that fortunate person who took to the backpacking trip the biggest pieces of luggage they could find. Little did they know, three lockers away from them were standing two strangers, and as it turned out they were also from Latvia, so they knew they needed to start a conversation with them cause they were first ones who spoke in the same language as them. Mysterious strangers also decided to quit their jobs and start a spontaneous trip in hopes of finding marvelous locations and experiences this world is hiding from the unthankful ones.
The conversation they shared lead to the realization of common goals and interests, and in 15 minutes of discussions on trains stations third platform, it felt like they knew each other since the last Christmas evenings dinner. Ever since they had been traveling across the Netherlands and are on a constant journey in searching for unknown adventures and meaningful stories.
Have you ever been in a situation where you meet someone randomly, and just know that together you can accomplish so many great things, but you’re wondering if that you were destined to meet those people or was it just a coincidence? Well, they have and also I don’t know, but I guess these things just happen.
Life is strange, isn’t it?
