I have been home almost 3 days…
and, I haven’t stopped smiling once.
despite the stress of finding work and making money,
life is perfect,
and just as it should be at this very moment.
I plan on indulging in certain things I have missed these past 4 months-
all things mexican
the strangest thing about being back?
I learned to love driving on the little one-lane village roads while living in germany.
slow moving traffic wasn’t caused by too many cars on the road,
but instead by tractors hauling manure and bales of hay away from their fields.
manual car aside,
driving was easy.
speaking of driving,
I have to say it-
german’s really know how to drive well.
we could learn a lot about driving from these masters of the autobahn.
don’t drive and talk on your phone.
I also miss the bakeries, affordable wine, and public transport.
but mostly, I really miss the alps.
i was spoiled.
so so spoiled.
and, i knew this the entire time I was there.
after all, i’m not blind.
thankfully, i took advantage of the natural beauty that sat in my backyard,
and spent a lot of time outdoors whenever the rain decided to stop.
i’ve never loved living in the US more than I do now.
even though a fast food restaurant and gas station is literally on every single corner,
we relish in processed food,
and our economy is in the dumps,
i love it.
and, i am so happy to be home.
