Coming from an international school background, I thought I had seen and heard it all. That I had a basal knowledge of most cultures, but man… was I wrong. And man… did I have a laugh. On the first evening I met Terisa from Nepal. We had just done some energisers, and were getting to know each other. Terisa asked me if we used maps in my country. I was pretty sure I misunderstood her, so I asked for clarification. Yeap, she really meant maps, because she was astonished that people in other countries needed them to get around their own cities! In Kathmandu, everybody apparently knows their city like the back of their hands, and if somebody were to tell you to meet them somewhere, you would know how to get there one way or another. Fun fact.
I’ve rewritten this post a silly amount of times. My first version was written somewhere in October 2016. Around the time when I bought my plane tickets to Bangkok. I wanted to share with you the story of Sunshine Sister and what was in store for it. Somehow, my scarcity mentality got the better of me and I kept thinking.. What if somebody steals my idea? And runs off with it and actually does a better job? Shouldn’t I keep this thing a secret until everything is ready so I can relaunch my blog and webshop with a bang and impress the shit out of everyone??
