Europe, My Love…

It is pictures like these that remind me that I am meant to live in Europe. How do I know it? I can just feel it. Whenever I see a photograph, hear a song, catch a phrase in a foreign language, my heart starts to beat faster. It is a dream so strong and so precious, that it physically hurts to not be living it. I lose myself in the possibility that, perhaps, this could become my reality.
So what do I do? I come back down to Earth, adjust my bearings, and fall in love and in purpose with Europe all over again.  I formulate my plan.
Now if that isn’t a sign then what is?
I don’t know when or where or how I am going to get there…but I will get there. One day. Some day. Soon.

#Germany-An Unexpected Delight#

blauberen springs, germany

When I saw this photograph of Blauberen Springs on Pinterest, it just reminded of how much I love Germany. For me, Germany was a traveller’s unexpected delight. Whenever I thought of Europe, it was always London, Paris, Zurich or Rome that consumed my daydreams; Germany never even entered the equation. However, when I moved to Poland, my first stop was the city of Frankfurt, and pretty soon I fell in love with the place.

To me, Germany is amazing. The history, the architecture, the city life and the countryside are all so charming. While the food didn’t really do much for me, the beer, apfel win and pastries more than made up for it! The one thing that really struck a chord with me though is that Germany is a place that has individuality, its own personal style. It’s friendly without being gushing, it’s creative without being gaudy, it’s modern without losing it’s roots, it’s innovative while being environmentally conscious. That unique vibe resonated with me when I first met this delightful country, and pretty soon it became my place to break free.

In short, Germany is one of the most interesting countries I’ve ever travelled. A place you don’t notice instantly, but when you do, you are taken in big time until, eventually, you become hooked. As it is, I’ve become a lifer.

Enjoy your weekend! Danke shon!
