I bought my ticket for the ferry, not the cheapest one because they told me maybe it’s nice to have a bed on the boat as it’s going overnight and the price was just 50 cents more then the deck-ticket. As I arrived on the boat a guy called Ferry was the only local speaking English, he helped me find my way on the boat and put me on the deck and got me a mattress to sleep on. I was just sitting in the sun relaxing talking a bit to other backpackers what they where about to do on the Togain island and to what resort they where thinking to go to.
All of a sudden there comes this girl on the deck with an amazing smile! Wow, I need to get close to her and talk a little with her, so I did. Coming from Turkey and shining like a star, very interesting of course. Ok! Ferry don’t push to much as she was talking with some other people as well, 1 person was just taking photo’s from her and I thought is this somebody famous, blogger, model or what? Ok, I need to go and ask again. After that we never stopped talking on the boat, some other backpackers where sitting with us as well but we just talked with the 2 of us, 7 hours straight away. Ok, time to close our eyes a little bit and hopefully we follow our conversations tomorrow again. I woke up in the morning and the sun was coming up, I just had a few hours sleep but I felt like I was shining like the sun. I looked at her for a while when she was still sleeping, she’s also beautiful when she’s sleeping. I softly woke her up to see the sunrise and together drink a coffee.
I still had the same amazing feeling about her, I really wanted she was coming to the same resort as where I was going to but how are you going to convince somebody you just met 14 hours ago? I didn’t had a clue, we walked together from the deck down but when I was downstairs she was not behind me anymore? What happened? I decided to wait a little and there she came, smiling as always, I just hoped it was because I was waiting her. I basically asked her directly to come with me to the same resort, she smiled and walked with me, still I wasn’t sure if she was coming to the same place, as we needed to take a canoe to the place. I looked at her eyes again and I just knew she was coming with me.
(What happened after that you can read in her story.) I just want to say that when we were sitting on the beach and looking stars our lives really changed and never would have been the same again. When I looked in her eyes there was so much feeling going through me, I just knew that I didn’t want to run away, but yes the easiest way in life is saying ‘no’ but I’m not the person who chooses the easy way, so I stayed and now we are living our life together around the world. Best decision ever made 🙂
