Because I knew you, I have been changed for good!

1 oktober 2016 - Leiden, Nederland

All things come to an end, and now it's my time to close this amazing chapter in my life.
I want to say THANK YOU to all the wonderful, inspiring, beautiful, crazy people I have met along the way:

"Because I knew you, I have been changed for good!" [Wicked] 

'I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn. 
And we are led to those who help us most to grow, if we let them
And we help them in return.
Well, I didn't know if I believed that's true, but I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...

It well may be that we will never meet again in this lifetime
So let me say before we part. 
So much of me is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine, by being my friend...'

Bon voyage, Andiamo, Buen Viaje, Gute Reise, On y va, Safe travel, Let's go!

With love, Marieke
