Flo and I constantly get asked what about Germany and what kind of german things we miss over here. Our friends and family don’t want to go on our nerves with asking these questions over and over again. They basically just want to know what to bring or send us to do us a favor. But against every expectations we had, so far we don’t really miss anything. At least not things you can just bring or send over.
Before we moved here I actually thought there might be certain foods, groceries or beauty products that I might miss. Bread, a few of you might think of as an example. No, Flo and I don’t miss bread. We found bread we like over here and Whole Foods even sells german bread. Flo and I never were big fans of Maggi or other german stuff like that, so we don’t miss that. Flo actually misses german Mettwurst (a kind of Tartar you eat on breadrolls). But that’s basically everything we miss.
I didn’t want to make this post about the people we miss and our families, so please don’t think I don’t miss them just because I don’t mention it. But: Flo and I (so far) don’t really miss Germany at all. And that surprised me a lot! Maybe this is another proof of how right the decision was to move here!
