Day 21~ March 21st~ Egypt

An innocent farewell

We live our lives in chapters and at some point each chapter has to end…

One of the hardest things to do after being charmed by people and after the sharing of a small part of life with them, is the separation. On the trip to Egypt, I had to say good bye so many times to so many beautiful people, it felt like leaving a small piece of me after each departure. It was always the children who left the most remarkable effect on me with their innocence, their playfulness and their natural way of being. Now that I have a child of my own, I feel so blessed to be able to laugh every day, to enjoy the simple things, to view the world through a veil of uncorrupted innocence as children do when I am in her company.

Children are our most precious responsibility, and they deserve out best effort to protect them and help them develop into the leaders of the future. I wonder how good of a job we are doing.

difficult goodbyes

Love between little cousins is pure, intense, joyful, effervescent, and everlasting. Every year the separation gets more and more difficult. We all live oceans and continents apart and holidays are savored and valued as times of reunion, re-bonding and the creating of fond memories.

Photo taken: Lea saying goodbye to her little cousin Monya, a process that took about 15 minutes of warmly hugging and kissing before our long drive back to Germany.

farewell to the magic beach

Today was our last day in Boracay, and the island has gifted us the best weather possible on this last day. The sun was shining the whole day, the water was glistening clear blue, filled with fish and little sea creatures. Even the moon was a beautiful glowing picture book crescent. We could not ask for a better day. My daughter and her friend bid farewell to the beautiful beach right before sunset.
