I would like to dedicate this post to my little sister and my loving girlfriend. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU GIRLS!
All started one and a half year ago (final decision). I asked my neighbor, who is a truck driver to call me if he has a transport to France because i found a good job there, but have no money to buy bus ticket, if we can go together with his truck.
It was a sunny Friday morning, exactly one year ago when i was working in the garden. The telephone was ringing. It was him. He told me that he leaves Monday morning at 10:00 o’clock, there is place for me too. That day was one of the happiest days of my life. Finally i can do something what i was made for. 🙂
Why? When i was 14 years old, on a night of April i was sitting in my bed, watching TV. As usually i was searching for some action movie and i found a little film about the Yugoslavian conflict. This was my first contact with the legendary French Foreign Legion. A true shock that followed me for almost eleven years. It’s funny that when i told to my parents and friends, everybody was laughing at me, saying that’s just a little boys dream. But it wasn’t for me…
The Kepi Blanc
Even after so many years of dreaming, few hours before leaving i started to think if it is normal to go there? Maybe i die or get injured… But something pushed me forward, and there was no turning back. I’m not that kind. Sunday i packed up said bye to everyone, than Monday morning attacked the road. Destination: Strasbourg, France.
It was a two day travel, with a lot of time for thinking about my future, about the sens of my life. Two days to get ready for an unknown world, and grow up a little bit. I went to the legion with a solid decision. I can make it through!
