My bachelor degree is soon to be a reality and my time as a bachelor student is about to end. It has been a stressfull but a wonderfull year and I will look back at it with joy, remembering all the great times I've had with the people around me.
But before my master studies will begin I have a bit of travelling to do. Once again I will get on the road, experiencing new and fantastic places.
This time I will leave for the Caucasus. I will join a two week summer university in Baku, learning a bit of the Azeri language and getting a touch of the culture and people there. It has been a dream for years to see Baku the oil-capital of Azerbaijan. Ever since I watched a tv-travel programme about this particular area into the Caspian Sea. The oil-towers fascinated me and the idea of poisonous snakes inhabiting the area scared me. To me, it seems the place most unlike what I know from home and I look greatly forward to spend two weeks in the company of Azeri-students who can teach me of this great place and its people. After Baku, I'll
leave for Georgia and Armenia for another two weeks, dicovering the beaty and thrill of the Caucasus.
In Germany everything is bigger
Bordershop in Flensborg/Flensburg
Slovenia and Hungary
But before getting on the road for real, I'll spend almost two weeks in Ljubljana and Budapest.
Ever since I left my wonderfull city of Ljubljana behind, I've wanted to go back. Now the time has come. I will once again enjoy a bela kava at makalonca or embrace the view from the castle. I will meet Mitja again and stay with Joäo at his central placed apartment. I will do nothing but relax and read a book, maybe hitch hike somewhere, and write on my travelblog about what a fantastic city Ljubljana is. I know the place will not be the same as before. Time has gone by and Slovenia has adapted greatly to the EU in just this short time I have been away. Most of my friends are no longer there and I will be a tourist like anyone else. But it is still my city. It will still consist of all the great memories I have. Of all the people I love from the time I lived there.
Afterwards I'll take a few days
seeing Budapest for the first time. When in Ljubljana that was the one place I wanted to go but never went. Now I have my chance. A few days at a hostel, walking the city and just being me. I look greatly forward to this and hope to post some nice pictures from this great capital of "Is Europa a country?"

Well, here I am dreaming of fantastic things to come. Chatting away on my travelblog. My bachelor is not writing itself, though the supervisor says so. Four more days untill deadline and six untill Ljubljana.
NB. I'm posting a few pics of my uni-time. I know it can not be characterised as travelling in the normal sense of the word, but it has been a great and educating travel anyway.
