Johanna Ouwerling - Open Arms – My Trips – 2004/2005

Here is Part 2 of my "Open Arms" trips in 2004/2005.
This one is to Leipzig where Tina Turner would perform in the ZDF show "Wetten Dass".
It was at the 13th of November 2004.

Already for weeks I tried to get tickets for the show.
I emailed a lot of people, also in Leipzig and also tried to win some tickets through the ZDF, the German TV station. But no luck.
Then in the last week before the show I tried to get tickets through Ebay, the auction site, but the prices went up till 500-600 Euro (about 600 Dollar) for 2 tickets and I would not pay that.
So with pain in my heart I had to let go the idea of going to Leipzig. But fate had decided otherwise.
On friday the 12th of November, the day before the show, at 1 pm I got an email from Mrs. Weise of the Ticketservice in Leipzig.
She had tickets for me!!!! And asked me to call her rightaway.
I did of course and it turned out there were some tickets left and she immediately had thought of me. Fantastic of course!!
I could come and collect them the next day. I thanked her and called my friend Renate with this great news.
Now we had to pack very quickly, because in 3 hours our train would leave and I also had to get the tickets before that.
Renate called the hotel. I already had found the NH Tagungshotel and luckily they still had 2 rooms for us.
So we met at the station and at 4.15 pm we left for Leipzig.

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
