First hometrip

First hometrip

Happy New Year!

I got back to Shanghai with my 46.4 kg of stuff on Sunday so I I guess it’s time to kick off the blogging for 2018, now that I’m not busy anymore having fun at home.

Here is a quick photo recap of my first trip home after almost 7 months in Shanghai. Not pictured:

  • My sisters and I in a pikatchu, minion and panda onesie. They said I couldn’t post it.
  • Our golden VW rental car. It was beautiful. Thorben was only slightly embarrassed.
  • Lots of fun with family, friends and my former co-workers

 

My favorite things about Germany

1.) Seeing friends and family. Obviously.

2.) Food. No surprise here 🙂 It was fantastic to eat Butterbrezeln, Hefezopf, Maultaschen, Käsespätzle, Sauerbraten mit Knödel … I could go on and on.

3.) Drinking the tap water.

4.) Crusing down the Autobahn at 180 km/h.

5.) Having your phone battery last forever because it’s not getting used up by the VPN. And just  being able to quickly use google and watch cooking videos on Facebook without preloading for 5 minutes 🙂

 

Now I’m back in the land of Alipay and Sherpas, which is also pretty great. Always remembering cash was really annoying.
