My Travel Story

I’ve always wanted to travel but I grew to accept that it might never happen as I don’t have the funds to support it. I never wanted to ask anyone and didn’t even want to think about a loan. But then in the summer of 2016 I met Lucie, the love of my life. I have never had any good luck when it comes to relationships as they never last very long. Some might say I have bad luck but I believe we make our own luck. The only girl I thought I might have a chance of happiness with died in my arms in 2014 when we were in a car accident. I am a strong person but it really tore me up, but with time I came to accept it because as much as I wanted to I could do nothing. Then Lucie showed me what it means to really live rather than just surviving. Because what’s the point of surviving if you can’t live.

She came to my country on a 6 month internship and we fell madly in love and got so caught up in the moment we completely ignored the fact that in a few months her visa would expire. I tried everything to keep her here even if it was just for an extra day but inevitably she moved back because neither one of us could afford to extend her visa. She had one of the worst childhoods you can imagine and now she finally found someone that really loves her and really cares for her and the same for me. I have never felt this way before and when she left it was 100 times harder than the car accident.

I need to show her how much I really love her and that I want to spend the rest of my life with her. She is more 12000km away on her own believing that we might never see each other again. She is in a state of depression and I’m afraid it might happen to me to. Every day when we talk she sounds so down and so sad and she is beginning to believe that we might never see each other again. I really believe this could be our chance to live the life we dream about, a chance to treat her like my little princess. It’s all I ever wanted, I just want to love her and be with her. I don’t even really remember my life before I met her. She showed me show much, she loved me unconditionally and she understood me. How can I ever go on living never knowing if we might have had a chance? I cannot and do not want to be without her and I know she feels the same and there is absolutely nothing we can do when we are this far apart.

I need to see her, even if it’s just for an hour. She needs to know I am hers and she is mine forever and always. I don’t care about a good job, great education or great living conditions because all I dream about and can think about is her. She is all I want. And that’s why I am here and that’s why I need your help. So that there may be a chance for me to see her again, I just need the funds to travel to her and at least stay a week or two. Because she needs me and I need her!
