- Edelweiss. The place, not the flower. We’ve visited there so many times it became a second home to us. I hated leaving Garmisch every time, but the last time was particularly tough.
- The quiet. I remember hearing people tell me that Germany was quieter than the states. When I visited family in OCT 201o I didn’t notice America as being loud, but when I got back to Germany the quiet was immediately obvious. I will miss the quiet, even though I love America!
- Doners. And brats. And schnitzel. And pretzels.
- Christmas Markets.
- Tuesday afternoon coffee dates.
- The complete freedom of homeschooling under DODS.
- Maldaner. Oh, Maldaner.
- Bathroom towel warmers.
A bit about our trip:
Today we have no plans but to sleep late, wash clothes, and relax. In just a few days we begin the preparation for our upcoming move but for today… we rest.
This concludes this series but it is in no way exhaustive of the things we will miss about living in Germany. I’m sure I’ll think of many other things along the way, especially once we move back and actually start to miss them.
