Sometimes the best things happening to you while traveling are totally unexpected and the result of a spontaneous decision.
I was just walking down the beach (as I had been for a couple of hundred kilometers on my walk to Africa), when I saw people jumping out of a small plane. In that instant I was sure what I would be doing the next day – my 24th birthday!
I ended up spending the day with the people I met at the dropzone, completing it with a barbecue and a swim in the Mediterranean under the moonlight.
This has probably been the best birthday gift I ever gave to myself.
