I met Ida in Aarhus on rainy Monday afternoon. We were talking less than one hour, because she needed to take train to visit a friend. But I am very happy we managed to meet anyway. Ida lives in Norway now, she came to Aarhus just for 3 days, so I am very grateful she found some time for our talk.
Ida is 26 years old, she just recently graduated technical school, her favorite thing in the world is sewing and she is a professional tailor now.
For the moment she is working in theater in city Kristiansand. Ida has been working as well in opera in Aarhus for 2,5 years and in London Royal Opera House for one month.
In 2008-2009 she decided to travel to unknown places, it brought her for 6,5 month to South America. She traveled alone, but while she stayed in hostels she met a lot of friendly people and joined them in their journeys. She has been in Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Ecuador. It was amazing life experience. The top of her travelling list now is Australia.
For all this time we talked Ida was smiling all the time, she is the person who does what she wants in life, she is positive, sociable, she loves people and her life.
And I am happy that finally I met such girl, who didn’t afraid to travel alone in exotic countries. One of my dreams is to travel to South America as well, to see remains of Maya and Aztecs civilization, to explore new cultures and new life. I don’t know when I will be able to travel there and if I have travel companion, but I know that I have to do it, even if I do it all by myself. If you have a dream you have to carry it out in life, and then you will have new goals and new meaning of your existence.
