My Last Preparation Before I left Muenster

My personal travel book

I dedicated this post to my great family and friends who supported me every time during making my plans. I'm very happy to have them.

This post documents my last days in Muenster before I finally flew to Ireland and which final preparations were necessary like: 
Where will I store my stuff? What to leave there? What to pack...? Anything else? 

It's also a kind of commemoration of my nice apartment in Muenster and all about saying Goodbye to my family and friends. I really love my personal travel book I got from them. You'll find later in this post the nice story how I got it .

How to get rid off my stuff?

When I made my decision to move abroad it was quite clear I had to sell the most of my stuff. Actually, I sold it on Ebay and it was quite successful. I didn't get pretty rich but if you start early enough and consider strategically what to sell first, second etc, then things will go well for you. I started selling my stuff three month ago before I left. In addition you'll get used to live with less, before the beginning of your gap year... 

Forever lasting love: me and my couch 
The only thing I haven't sold was my lovely red couch and my armchair... I set both on Ebay but I undid it after a few days because these things I won't get back anymore. Many thanks to Ikea because I'll get back their stuff pretty easy but not my lovely couch. Therefore my grandma offered me to store it at her house. 

So far so good.

Stupid thing was that I thought I could put the couch and the armchair alone in the elevator of my apartment. Of course, it didn't work... Neither to carry them alone nor one of them fitted into the elevator. So I asked my kind neighbor for helping me to carry them in my garage. Afterwards, I picked up a hired Transit van and carried the couch and armchair alone from the garage into the van. Well, tough workout. 

My precious couch & armchair. Worth every workout.
At least I learnt my lesson:
Firstly measure the elevator, secondly ask for help before begin, thirdly I'm not Wonder Woman...
