first couple of days of 2016 are over and I’m back to reality, meaning back in Strasbourg, my second? third? – I don’t even know anymore how many homes I’ve got – home. I started my new year with a journey, I wanted to do some more traveling after all. It wasn’t easy to say goodbye to my friends in Austria but as soon as I got on the train I was excited to see mes amis en France. Traveling has so many advantages but hardly anyone ever speaks about the downsides of it and yes, I admit there are quite a few as well. Having friends and family all over the world seems like an amazing thing at first and I don’t wanna deny that, but if you have a closer look at it, having friends spread all around the world means that you constantly miss someone and something. I love coming home to Austria as much as I love going home to France, Australia or Hungary even. Or to places I haven’t even been to yet but just the fact that I know someone I love will be there already makes me feel like home. Coming home to such a view of the city compensated the difficulty of leaving Christmassy Austria. I was gone for two short weeks but coming back again made me realize how beautiful Strasbourg was and how lucky I am to be able to do my studies here. L always says Strasbourg and I are made for each other and I somehow start believing it. Even after living here for four months, I am still enchanted by the beauty and the fact that Christmas lights were still up and I could finally take some photos without nasty tourists on them that would make my photos go blurry. Sorry J for having to put up with me that night and for being so patient with me taking thousands of photos. Here are my faves. Hope you like them. Now what’s it like for you to come home?
