Part 3: After five weeks in amazing Ghana with the one I love, it was almost time for me to go back to Holland.
We enjoyed the final week in Ghana spending time with family and mostly together on the beach. Charles took some extra time off so we we’re able to do all those things. Of course we realized this amazing journey would come to an end soon, but nevertheless we also knew that they were loads of new adventures waiting ahead.
We actually handled the situation pretty well when we were still in Ghana. Even the moment of saying goodbye wasn’t dramatic and emotional. We we’re just like: ‘We got this’. Haha. You know, we knew we would be back together soon, our trip together was epic but there will be more.
But once I was in that airplane .. it just kicked in. There was just too much time to overthink and reminisce the memories. But, most of all, I really felt grateful. Ghana did not only change us in our relationship, it did not only made us stronger as a couple, but it also made me a different person. I felt I was growing and that is something I will have for life. I had a clearer picture of what I wanted for myself in life.
Charles and I are both chasing our dreams, we also feel that’s very important, besides having a solid relationship. With that said, ideal would be if we could travel as much as possible together, taking our careers with us as we are going on loads of adventures as a couple. Eventually that is possible. Yet the financial circumstances need to allow that as well. Our relationship is quite expensive since we both travel back and forth. But no matter how much we would like to see each other more often on short terms, we need to think about the bigger picture and work really hard towards that, to achieve what we want to achieve. We have to work our asses off and grow even more as individuals in order to be together.
Charles: Making it work is in our case a matter of teamwork, love, remaining on the same page and doing what we do best: being our self as an individual as much as a couple. Together, apart, it doesn’t matter. When it’s real, it’s real.
We are definitely planning a move towards togetherness! That is the ultimate goal at the moment and we are doing everything we possible can to realize this. But as much as we can plan this great reunion we by now know, life doesn’t always pan out the way we want it to. But all good things happen in time so stay tuned to see what, how and where we land!
