An Overflowing Heart

Jump to last reply

This is not about travel. This is about having my breath taken away. I’m living and working in Germany (how cool is that?!). Over the weekend I went on a wein wanderweg at Freinsheim sampling wine in the vineyards. At a table, a group of about ten Germans made room for us, toasted our arrival and practically adopted me and a friend. Throughout the 5-mile walk we ran across them, always wanting to chat and joke with us and just have fun together as if they’d known us forever. Today is my birthday. I’m feeling a tiny bit sorry for me being alone and away from friends/family. At about 7:30 my doorbell rings. It is my landlord and his wife. They shout “Happy birthday” and give me beautiful flowers. I am astounded. How did they even know? All the Germans I have interacted with are just so wonderful, warm and embracing. I am truly the luckiest person on the planet to be living here in this fantastic country.
