And.... I am back. Two weeks went by in a flash and I am back in Melbourne, suffering from a very nice souvenir from Germany. Actually I am suffering from two - namely a nasty cold I probably caught in Hamburg before departing and a
I miss my family, my parents and especially my grandmother. I was granted with many beautiful hours that I spent with her during my visit, only making our goodbye hard, oh so hard. I miss her terribly.
I miss my friends - I was lucky to see many of them while traveling through Germany and Switzerland. It was wonderful to see that even after two years of not seeing each other, it was easy to pick up where we left. It almost felt like I had never moved and that makes me very happy.

I had a super busy schedule and I almost never had alone time let alone time for taking photographs. I had all those plans laid out - where to go, what to see, what to photograph. In the end I only spent one afternoon in Frankfurt by myself, waiting for a friend to come and have dinner with me at the great new restaurant Oosten at the banks for the river Main.

For all the expats - isn't it incredible how one needs another vacation after returning visiting home? So busy!!! Definitely doesn't count as a holiday! Ready for the next one! *K
