From my point of view, 2014 was a great year! I met nice and interesting people, had great trips to beautiful nature area's, had a lot of fun and learned a lot.
2014 was also a year with great losses in the world due to wars and strokes.....only a few days ago a lot of children were killed and to me it seems that other (meaningless) things overruled this tragic news. When I was in Aachen, I noticed some very poor people, some of them were begging in the cold, but they got no attention from the shopping crowd. Seeing this poor people and seeing lots of people bying many big expensive boxes of playmobil was a sharp contrast!
I wish you all a lovely & peaceful Christmas and the very best for 2015! Enjoy life, cherish your beloved ones, live your dream and.....do not forget/ignore the people who need help!
Merry Christmas - Prettige kerstdagen - Frohe Weihnachten - I will be back in 2015.
