Hey Ben, welcome home... wenn man das nach fast drei Jahren noch so sagen kann (und dann auch noch im November, der schlimmsten Zeit für eine Rückkehr). Fühle mit dir. Einzige Lösung: Geld auftreiben und wieder los (gibt ja noch ein paar weiße Flecken auf deiner Landkarte... wenn auch nicht so viele ;-).

Thank You
Hey Ben, You been a true inspiration to me. I love discovering and even more rediscovering some of the most beautiful place in the world. I really thought for a moment you would never go back home. Its been great to read you along the way. I cannot remember how many time I was bored in a train somewhere in the world and start reading some of your old entries. Hope you are not too bored at home....you can always leave again...there is still a lot to see. Trust me, you can probably make up a book with all your blogs... Take care Nick

i shed a tear after following you for 2.5 yrs
I have loved following your blog so long and will miss it! Your life was so exciting to follow and it brightened others as well! I totally understand how it feels to come home after a long time on the road. I think I was depressed for at least 6 months after (and it's only been 8 since i got back from my year long travel). And going back to work is a real killer, as well. However, my advice...move to a new city and start exploring while working. It's fun b/c you have more money to do things and also can feel really connected to the city b/c you live there. However, i have no other advice b/c it really sucks coming back to day to day life. Good Luck! Your travel blog will be missed!

Hey Ben, I just read your last blog entry, and while I continue to be very jealous of you, and think you have been ridiculously spoiled, I still cant imagine how hard this must be for you. Also, I suppose its not the kind of thing, like heartbreak or something, that nearly everyone could sympathize over. I don't think youre going to get a lot of "I know how you feel" in the coming weeks. Anyways, best of luck for your re-introduction to settled society, and I hope finding a new path is painless and exciting. Don't see it as the journey being over though! Just a new challenge. Good luck, -Lilia

Welcome back und Woe :-)
Hi Ben mein Weltenbummler, lese gerade Deinen letzten Blogeintrag und hab gleich zu dem Telefonhörer gegriffen, um in Neuenrade anzurufen - besetzt :-) Two things to say: 1. Ich kann nicht auf den Schulball kommen -> Doof! 2. Ich komm am kommenen Wochenende heim -> Möglichkeit! Bist Du zufällig da? Wie wäre es dann am Samstag sich zu treffen? Fänd ich super, Grüßle Sven

Willkommen zurück!
Mein lieber Ben, gerade habe in deinem Blog gelesen, dass du nun wieder zu Hause bist und deine lange Reise beendet hast. Als ich deine letzten Zeilen so gelesen habe, hat mich das selber auch ein bisschen melancholisch gestimmt, obwohl ich mich dann auch wiederum freue, dass du in erreichbarer Entfernung bist und vielleicht sogar die Chance auf ein Treffen besteht!? Selbstverständlich bist du jederzeit nach München eingeladen. Oder aber wir schaffen es, uns in Plettenberg zu sehen - du bist doch Weihnachten da? Fühl dich auf jeden Fall fest gedrückt und genieße jetzt wieder die Zeit im neuen alten Leben. Jetzt gehen neue Abenteuer los... ;o)) Dicken Kuß und bis hoffentlich bald! Lynda

Your Final Blog
Hey Ben, I have thoroughly enjoyed following your blog for the past zillion months. Your blog was an inspiration for me before I began my own long-term travels. Currently I've been traveling one year and, I must say, it's the best decision I've ever made. Again it's been a pleasure, and I wish you well in all of your endeavors. Best, Adam Daigle

Your photos
Hey, I have been travelling (but working :( ...) for the last 4 years and am now back in my home country (UK) going stir crazy while I wait for the funds to go and do what you are doing - as in pure travelling. I had to write to you as I lived in Panama city for a year and just took a look at your photos and they are stunning !!! You really captured the place. I want to do a year trip, from Istanbul to Australia, travelling all through Asia. Can't wait. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos. They are an inspiration.

Welcome back to Germany !
As you have fianaly come to the end of your trip does it now really mean that we have to leave our comfortable armchair and our cosy home and to travel finally by ourself again ? Do you think that this is fair ? As far as I had the pleasure to get to know you I am very sure that this is not the end of "LivingThedream" and this is not the end of your journey it is only a break. I hope we once have the chance to meet us face2face maybe in Frankfurt or Berlin. What a pity that you did not continue your trip to Peru! Thank you so much for letting us share your experience! I will miss your Blog. with kind regards walter

Your Travels
Ben, I have enjoyed your travels immensely. You are my hero when it comes to adventure. Hopefully, someday, I'll make the trip. I would like to catch up with you in a year just to see where you are and what you are doing. It just doesn't seem right not to see what is next in your life. I wish you the very best in health, happiness, love, and career, wherever life leads you.
11th November 2010

Ben, it's been a pleasure following your trip for the past year. I can't even imagine traveling for 2 and a half years. I hope to one day see as many places and have as many experiences as you have. All the best in your new life at home. PS Tell "Ann" to eat it.

Ach menne
Hi Ben, nun bist Du schon wieder zu Hause. Vielen Dank, dass Du immer in den Blog geschrieben hast, es war immer sehr interessant Deine Reise mit zu verfolgen. Leb Dich wieder gut ein in good old Germany. Meld Dich wieder - Anja würde sicher gern einen Tee mit Dich trinken - und ich auch, um spannende uns schöne Geschichten zu hören vorn Dir. Lass es Dir gut gehen. Auf bald. Viele Grüße Oli

Want to hear more
Returning is sad and re-entry provides some challenges but it has a lot of good things also. It takes months for you to absorb all that you have seen and the people you have met. Can't wait to read your future blogs.
