Two weeks ago was our “D-day“. The second of July at seven in the morning we left on our bikes on the journey of our life. We finished our final preparations. Our apartment is for the new renters. Bags were packed. Stuff that we don’t need is at our parents. And the hardest thing I did, leaving my cat in good care of my grandma. One of the most difficult decisions of my entire life but she will have a good life there for the time that I am gone. I’m sure of that.
