„How will our families and friends react?“
That was the questions we asked ourselves shortly after deciding to really make that trip. I had all kinds of scenarios in mind – from crows over tearing up to preachments. I was sure that my sister would start crying and my to-be father-in-law would give us a lecture on not to quit our jobs and apartments and leave everything behind. But it wasn’t that bad. We found a good tactic to tell everybody about our intention. Because if you start the conversation by saying „we have to tell you something…“ everybody thinks the woman is pregnant. And when that topic is no longer an issue it’s not the badest thing that we will go away to travel the world.
But of course there were a lot of questions. In part they were comprehensible, in part they were kind of absurd. I wrote down the frequently asked questions. Maybe that will help you to prepare for the endless hours of questions and answers.
