One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've managed to participate in a student exchange program. I went to Ljubljana for half a year. (We do not have Erasmus in Russia, so, it's not very common and it was a bit more complicated). Making a choice between Finland and Slovenia I picked up the second one (why? it's just more far away from here)) and never regreted about that =) That half a year away from all that things that I knew before and got so freaking used to that did not even notice, away from all the life I lived before was nearly the best of all that happened in my life =)

I've met a lot of nice people, who opened my eyes on many things around, I've made great friends there, who made me today's myself =) I'll always be greatful to all of them =) What I experienced there was really a turning point for my mind. The first real feel of a freedom.

so, when about half a year after my coming back home an old friend asked me if I'd like to go to India with him, I did not even think - I said "sure! when?" =) He even repeated the question for he thought I didn't got it =)))
