I met Noel in India. He is one of the friendliest people i have ever met in my life. Really! During his time in Bodhgaya he volunteered for me at Bowl of Compassion. I remember that we were trying to fundraise money to buy new school books for the students of the primary school. Noel then had the brilliant idea to let the children draw postcards that our supporters can buy for 5 Euros in order to help us. This idea was beautiful and soon after we started to inform the people online, we received the first donations. Within 10 days we had all necessary funds that covered the costs for the books. I was so greatful!
We had a beautiful time together and i promised Noel, that we meet again for sure if ever visit France.
And i did 🙂
Noel lives not far from Strasbourg in a town called Metz. I fell in love with both cities for their beauty and fairytale character. The old style houses and sweet alleys with all the cafes and sweet restaurants.. i was in love!
But it was even more beautiful meeting Noel and Marie there who i spent a wonderful time with. Marie is Noels girlfriend and they both make a perfect match. She is as kind as Noel, which is hard… but i was actually not surprised. Kind people attract kind people 🙂
Noel had promised me to teach me Tarte flambée.
