Things I Will Miss

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

1. The slant of the roof in my attic apartment

2. The punctuality of the buses

3. The little cloth shopping carts the grannies pull to the supermarket every day

4. My way-too-small child’s bike that gives me a back ache but has carried me all over the place through crazy weather

5. The German way of saying good morning

6. Good espresso served at every food establishment

7. My little neighbor girls downstairs popping their heads out of the window to say hi as I walk by

8. The ultra fancy, posh McDonalds where people literally go on first dates

Spring has Sprung in Germany!

Welcome. Welcome. Did I say how happy I am that you’re here? It felt like you took your sweet time, but you were so worth the wait.

As you may have gathered, this winter was a bit rough for me. I like snow and reading and wool socks as much as the next girl, but by the end of March it was, well, let’s just say it was a bit much. Now that I can sleep with the windows open and show my pale legs to society, I am one happy lady.

Yesterday I went to Heidelberg to visit a dear friend. Everyone was out enjoying the warm sunshine. Live music wafted through the market square and I ate a ginormous gelato cone that later gave me a stomach ache from all the sugar but I didn’t even care. Spring in Germany is something special.

The tourists haven’t arrived, the towns are still waking up again from their long hibernations. This is our reward for surviving the last five months. Thank you God!

A Weekend in Croatia

I spent the weekend in beautiful northern Croatia with my beautiful friend Ruth! We spent most of our time in the ancient Roman city of Rovinj. It was a dream. I can’t even articulate how lovely every corner of the place was! I want to come back one day in the summer when the water is warm enough to swim! It is cheaper and less touristy than Venice, which is only a two hour boat ride away across the Adriatic channel. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!
