SJ on the Move

Tuesday, December 19, 2006


Our last weekend in Bonn was a pretty poignant one. It's hard to believe that just a few months ago we were literally counting the days until we left, and in the end we were really torn up about leaving.

In many ways, the weekend was a great last 'hurrah' as we went to the end of the year party put on by my company, enjoyed a few last trips to the Christmas market, and SJ also got the chance to spend most of the day with her good friend Jona.

However, while on the surface the weekend would seem to be good closure, all it really did was make sure the emotional floodgates were good and open while we packed up our belongings and got ready for the journey back to Boston.

If only we could have arranged some more 95 degree weather and a few more trips to the immigration office, then we could have returned to Boston with a real bounce in our step. Instead, we felt torn in two - excited to see family and friends and familiar surroundings again, but mournful of leaving the same behind.
