Now that I let the cat out of the bag and confessed that I’m not a Londoner anymore (At least not in the true sense of the word…I will always be a Londoner at heart) I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to revisit my stay at my mum’s house in November, and tell you how I eventually knew I had to move back to Germany.
When I booked the flights to visit my mum and Klaus, I chose to stay for a week. The week passed, and as I was about to get ready for the airport, I realised something. I had really enjoyed my stay in Germany – I obviously enjoy quality time with my family, but I usually never enjoy being back in the country. I always wished my whole family was living in London. This time was different though. For the first time in eight years I didn’t want to fly back to London…and I mean I reeaaaaally didn’t want to fly back.
As I said before, there are many reasons why I wanted to return to Germany. To some extent, these have always been floating around in my head causing havoc with my feelings. They were never strong enough to seal the deal, though. But the moment I realised I didn’t want to fly back to London, I knew the decision was made. So I stayed another week, and took the chance to visit a few more beautiful places in the south of Germany before I’d go back to London one last time to start preparing my move.
On the last day of that additional week I really wanted to drive down to Hohenzollern Castle. It was a beautiful and warm November day, so naturally loads of people decided to visit the castle. As the queue to go inside was super long, we just stayed outside, explored the castle grounds and enjoyed the beautiful weather before grabbing some lunch and dropping me off at the airport.
