My home is a disaster zone of packing boxes, paint cans and piles of stuff to be donated or ditched.
Part of our lease is to repaint the interior of the house white before we leave. Fabulous!
Just adds to the stress of moving. Throw in Christmas, New Year, a mountain of paperwork
and a never ending to do list, nerves in our household are jangling.
In days, our life as expats comes to an end after nearly eight years and three countries.
It is time to move back home to Perth, Western Australia.
We can look back on a fabulous list of adventures over the last twelve months, 2016 will be
vastly different as we head back to live in the most isolated city on the planet.
No more driving from Germany to France for lunch!
It is going to be wonderful rediscovering our homeland, more memories to be made,
adventures to go on and exploring things that have changed.
We have certainly made the most of our time in Europe,
here are just 15 of the many adventures we went on in 2015
Belem Tower in Portugal on a gorgeous Summer day.
We popped over to Metz in France for lunch one day...because we could.
The cathedral was one of the best I have seen.
We visited Mannequin Piss in Brussels.
Spent the day by the seaside in Lynmouth, Devon.
On a very hot Summer's day in Germany, we jumped in our air conditioned car,
went for a drive...and stumbled on this amazing castle..Eltz Castle.
A medieval castle nestled above the Moselle River.
We popped in to Woolacombe Beach in England, voted the 13th best beach in the world!
Nice, but I can't wait to dip my toes into the Indian Ocean next week!
Another day trip, another castle! The gorgeous Heidelberg Castle.
The spectacular city of Lisbon, a few days was not enough, I will be back..one day!
Enjoyed yet another Fasching Festival in Wiesbaden, so much fun!
We drank Bordeaux in Bordeaux and fell in love with the city,
stayed an extra day to discover more...
We drove through a snowstorm to visit Utrecht, The Netherlands.
So worthwhile, such beauty and the skies turned blue for us!
Baden Baden, in The Black Forest was wonderful, the Spring air so fresh and fragrant.
We spent a fabulous weekend in Prague, wandered around this beautiful city for hours!
We took in the views while walking amongst the heather in the Exmoor National Park.
We soaked up the history in Berlin, the capital of Germany.
Stay tuned for some Aussie Adventures...and I will document our European adventures in more detail ... when I have a spare minute...possibly 2017!
Now....back to packing and sorting...
