Oh hai, remember me?


I am that girl who promised to update while on vacation and who failed miserably.
I know I do owe you an apology for dropping off the face of the earth so rather unexpectedly. I really wanted to update here while I was on my trip and let you be a part of my wonderful experience back home, but I just did not get around to posting anything (besides the two rather short updates in the beginning).
I guess, I was too busy having fun. Please do forgive me.

I safely made it home across the Atlantic this last weekend. Since Eyjafjallajökull was keeping quiet this time, our return route was much shorter than expected, as we flew directly over Iceland and the southern tip of Greenland. This was a good thing.
The plane from Frankfurt was delayed and I would have with no doubt missed my connecting flight from LAX to SMF, if we had made a huge detour around Iceland again.

To be honest, it’s quite strange to be back. Three weeks are definitely enough time to get used to being back home again and I also kind of got used to not doing anything and just hanging out with my family. Life should be that way, don’t you think?

I am hoping to make up for all the lack of posts recently by giving you a nice, detailed recap (probably stretched out into a few posts) of my (almost complete) May 2010 in Germany.


  1. Sounds like a plan! :)

    I was absent too due to my super time-consuming class. So, yay to both of us for being back!

    1. Yes! Yay for both of us being back!

  2. And I leave tomorrow for Berlin! I try to post while Uschi makes dinner, so hopefully I will succeed at keeping you enlightened on Anneliese and my travels.
    Missed you terribly, but so very happy you enjoyed your family!
    Yes, that’s what it is all about!

    1. Have a great trip, Maribeth!

  3. Glad you made it back safely. That cloud picture is awesome!

  4. Good to have you back :)

  5. Glad that you are back safely.
    I am sure the time with your family was great and you enjoyed every second.
    Time goes by so quickly lately,… *sigh*

    Looking forward to your posts with all the news.

  6. So glad you made it back safely! Hope you had an AMAZING time and can’t wait to hear about it :)

  7. Welcome – I noticed that you call both sides (Germany and America) “home”. Isn’t this funny that we, probably all, feel this way?
    I’m glad you had a wonderful vacation time and I hope you’ll get back on the daily routine easily ;)

    1. Yeah, that’s right… it’s both “home” to me know. It’s strange ;)

  8. Glad you’re back, and no worries about the blog absence, I’d much rather you were loving your vacation and not having to rush to the computer every few hours. Can’t wait to hear about your trips and see pictures!

  9. As long as you promise to talk about food too. I heart German food (and if you think I’m weird, chalk it up to having gone to a German School)

    P.S. Thanks for the beautiful comment on my blog today. :-)

    1. Oh, you can be sure I’ll be talking about food! :)

  10. How was it?! I want to hear all about it!

    1. It was a blast! :)

  11. Welcome back! I’m not sure any of us can blame you for ditching your blog while you were gone. I usually look forward to non-blogging when I’m away on vacation. Can’t wait to hear your recap(s)!

  12. Welcome back, lady friend! :-)
