I miss you!
Lately I have been very, very homesick. Not homesick to Germany, but homesick to my friends. We have been here for a little over 18 months now and even though we already found some new friends, it is still not the same. I was always very worried about finding friends before we moved here and expected it to be very hard. But if your fears really become reality, it hits you harder than you expected.
I really don’t know, why I am that homesick right now, but I hope it will not last forever. I didn’t expect to have a huge circle of friends after a little after a year and I know that I will take a few more years to fully settle into our new home, but even with this knowledge it is hard. Lately many people have been telling us that Los Angeles is especially hard to find friends at. But we already met some great people here and I am positive that there are many more that we just have to find.
Don’t think that we regret moving here or something, because I have been sounding a bit bumped lately. I just want you to be able to follow our journey as close as you can. And that means that I can’t only write about the good things that happen, but also have to write about the boundries that stand in our way. But be assured, we still love living in LA, we know that a lot of amazing things are laying ahead of us and let’s be honest: This whole journey wouldn’t be as amazing as it is, if it was easy!
