HOW WE MET BOB AND HOW WE CHANGED HIS LIFE
We first met BoB on the golf course – of course, where else? Lars played quiet a good round and wanted to hit some more balls on the driving range. . . and there he was. BoB looked so sad and Lars had to ask him ‘What’s up little boy?’
He said that he is so sick of his normal life on the golf course. Being surrounded only by the rich and famous, he always wanted to explore our lovely planet besides the ‘perfect’ golf world. Seeing other places, getting to know people and cultures, listen to new music, trying unknown food, just traveling.That is what he was dreaming about the whole day long. But for a little curious golf ball that was a huge dream. How should he ever travel around the world? He had hardly any money and he was too small for long travels.
Lucky for him, that Lars met BoB on that day. He and Liane wanted to quit their jobs anyway and start traveling. ‘Why not with a golf ball?’ Liane asked. ‘He is small, light, doesn’t eat too much (that’s what we thought) and he looks like a funny guy.’ Both couldn’t resist BoB‘s sad looking eyes and the decision was made.
So Liane and Lars told BoB that he can travel with them and he started to cry as he couldn’t believe it. BoB packed his backpack, said goodbye to his collegues and friends on the golf course and started his big adventure around the world!
WHO IS TRAVELING WITH BOB?
Hi I’m Lars. Have you ever had to write about yourself? Man, I have no idea… let’s say I’m the typical boring average guy who has been very lucky in his life. I am German, so I never had to fear war, hunger or that I have to live under the bridge. I have a lovely girlfriend (only God knows why I deserved that) and I’m neither a good journalist or writer nor a great photographer or filmmaker… so I’m perfect for a travel blog *lol*!
The last 10 years I worked in the luxury hotel sector, responsible for Sales and Marketing (I loved it) and I had to travel a lot through Europe which was amazing. I lived in 10 different cities and 3 countries. I visited 13 countries before I met BoB and of course I want to visit MORE
Oh yes, and I love golf and I don’t like people who say they hate golf but never played it (except for miniature golf…tzzz). Golf in fact is like traveling because you get easily addicted to it. You should try it! Now have fun reading our blog and a big THANK YOU for coming by!
And who is the third part in this trio? Me… Liane Nice to meet you!
I think it is not difficult to start liking travelling but I guess, it is something different to have a passion for it. The roots of my passion can probably be traced back to my childhood. Grown up in a very touristy place at the coast of the Baltic Sea, I have always been surrounded by travellers. After school I started to study ‘Leisure and Tourism Management’. What a surprise! During that time I experienced my first longer stays away from home, in New Zealand and on Tenerife, Spain.I enjoyed the time being abroad so much! It was also the time when I discovered the photography. To keep memories alive with pictures is just great. (However I am still far away from a professional! Luckily I have a quite good camera that helps a lot 😉 After these two longer trips my wanderlust became bigger. A few years later I spend another 6 months in Australia, doing ‘work and travel’ with a friend.
