Before Elmar and I left for our summer in Germany, a lot of our friends in Texas wished us well on our “European Adventure”. I haven’t been here since 2011, yet it feels too familiar to be an “adventure”. Many Americans see Europe as a luxury destination, but I see it as “home 2.0”.
This week, we’re catching up with Elmar’s family, but also filling up on typical German things that we miss. For example:
I thought it would be fun to include my youngest nephew in some of these pictures, but my father-in-law reminded me that Germans are more sensitive to online privacy. So I won’t mention his name, and I hope my photo editing above isn’t too creepy.
