I was just cleaning up some folders in my laptop, and I stumbled upon old pictures…Whooaaa, memories!! sweet ones.
1. My Au Pair journey in Germany was memorable. I will never forget this period of my life. I got the chance to be independent by living abroad for a year and lived in with a family, learned a new culture and also met new people. This picture was taken in my first summer abroad in 2005! Together with a neighbor girl (on my left side), Kristina. She was super nice, the first girl I met when I just moved there and immediately took me under her wings. I was welcomed warmly by her family… Her mother, Frau H. was such a lovely lady and I was always welcomed there whenever I needed a quiet moment. Then we would sip tea (she loved to make peppermint + camomile tea) in the kitchen. The other 3 girls were her foreign girlfriends. Senka from Bosnia, Nadja and Masha from Belarus. The pic was taken during an event called Strassenfest (bloc party). Seriously, I met such great people during my stay in Germany. I guess that is why I always feel Germany like my second (or 3rd) home whenever I am there.
2. My first holiday to Spain! Here I was tasting Cocido Madrileño ..a traditional chickpea-based stew from Madrid. Oh my it was soooo goodddd!! I think if I remember it correctly, our tummies were about to explode, but could not helping ourselves to eat it more and more..and in the end, we did not finish it. Moreover, it was such a perfect summer evening. It was warm, love was in the air and we had a bliss. We definitely will come back to Spain someday. Sevilla is definitely one of the cities in “next cities in Spain list we need to visit” !
3. Ahh…Little Tjakra and his brother, Naru on J’s lap. Naru died not long after this picture was taken 😦
Hiks..I now get teary eyes from the last picture. Well, have a fabulous week friends!
