This year is really near to its ending, and maybe for some, 2016 may have been their worst year, but with us we cannot say it is our best either but it brought something great with us. One of those is this site; Conversations of Us became the outlet of our ideas, we felt like we are free to share everything that we’ve always wanted to share and another thing is that we are constantly creating a community with this site. So before this year ends let us introduce with you some of our favourites for the year.
Aileen is truly an inspiration for both of us as travellers, she became our very first feature and we are so grateful to know more about her and her stories. The best lesson we got from her is to never be afraid in chasing your dreams, because it’s just there somewhere.
I (Eena) chose this as my favourite letter that Bart wrote, because he did not only focus with his feelings towards Antwerp, but he shared the fact that he still got more things to learn inside his own country. He made me see the fact that each country will always be beautiful, all you have to do is to let its beauty unfold and to never get tired in exploring because there will always be something new that will show everyday.
With a touch of Coldplay’s Fix You partnered with words to live by, it is indeed no doubt that Rish’s piece captured our hearts. She showed pain in its most beautiful way that in the end gave us hope. To the one who received this piece, we hope you loved it as much as we do.
Now, if your 2016 became shitty, try to look at the bright side, happiness may be far but then again, it’s there somewhere. Let’s hope for a better 2017 and we hope that you will also help us create a bigger and more beautiful community together.
Have a happy new year!
Bart and Eena
P.S. We will be back with something great for the fifth day of 2017, stay tuned!
