Our friends and family ask us all the time what stuff we miss from Germany and what we want them to send us. Normally my answer is “nothing”. Because every time someone asks that question, I can not think of anything I miss so bad that I want someone to send it to me. One of my american friends told me that there is a shop called “World Market” that sells a ton of foreign candy and other stuff. Yesterday we happened to be near one of those stores, so I decided to check it out real quick. And guess what: Even if I had kind of forgotten about most of the stuff, I totally had to buy a ton. After 30 minutes in that store, I ended up buying a candy stash that will last us for a few months!
Before we moved here I always tried to figure out what I might be missing! But as always: Reality wants to go in a different direction. And for us it decided to (mostly) spare us all the missing and craving. But it’s still nice to have some stuff at home that reminds you of your old home!
* BTW: Most of the german stuff at the World Market is kind of okay priced. The Haribo stuff costs us about 2 Dollars each and for the Candy Bars we paid 50 Cent to 1 Dollars! So if you are german, miss stuff from back home and happen to see one of those stores: Don’t miss to check them out!
