In forty eight days the movers come, packing will begin and our time here will be done. It's time to go back to America, not Utah but New York. The start of another adventure, maybe not as exciting or culturally different as here but still not home. We are all excited, but like anything when it comes to an end, you start thinking about what you will miss most about the experience.
I'm going to miss many things.....
pause,pause....more silence......crickets chirping........awkward silence....
Okay maybe it will be easier to list them.....
~Incredible experience and opportunities
~beer and bratwurst
~cheap milk and juice
~ good cheap wine
~country walks and bike rides
~incredible city center and parks
~flower and veggie outdoor markets
~random naked German sites
I will not miss
~the long hours my husband worked
~ rules, rules and more rules
~ not having a clue what people are saying
~not being able to read most signs,mail, food packaging etc...
~the Metric system
~small sized food items
~expensive meat and veggies
~potatoes with everything
~Quiet hours 12-3 daily
~shops being closed during quiet hours
~rainy gray days
~formal rules and etiquette
What I'm looking forward to:
~family on same or close timezone
~understanding languages, signs, packaging
~large pack items
~2 ply soft toilet paper
~a real dryer
~having no excuses
Will I have regrets.....you bet I already do!
Have I learn something....of coarse!
Would I do it again.....maybe!
P.S. -Shelle I swear I don't have a drinking problem....but come on we are taking GERMAN beer...yes I will miss it!
