The best thing about living in Europe is that a 40-minute drive can take you to a different country.
Willkommen in Düsseldorf!
(n.) an ache for distant places
I got the boys ready early in the morning, Niko for school and Nate for our day trip to Germany.
It’s Xany’s first time in Europe
and we’re so excited to show her around.
We brought Niko to school with the car (we usually go to school on our bicycles),
he doesn’t want to come out. He knows we’re going somewhere.
He maybe young, but he’s really smart!
And no, we can’t bring him with us because it’s mandatory for his age to be in school.
Song for this trip:
“And they say
She’s in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream”
A-Team, Ed Sheeran
It feels wonderful to finally travel again
after a long time. Just crossing the border from
The Netherlands to Germany already
gave me a happy feeling.
We enjoyed the view from the Rhine Embankment Promenade. There weren’t a lot of people because we were there right before it got busy. It was a short day trip since we need to be back before Niko’s done with school.
Trust the timing of your life.
This year has been more fulfilling than last year. I was able to
get my residence permit and at the same time our
application for Xany to live with us was approved.
The process went pretty fast for us actually. That is why
I admired how fast the system works in Europe.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
