As is almost a tradition, I once again returned to Bremen this winter for a good old catch up with my besties in Germany. Having only got back from Israel around 2½ weeks earlier, and almost exactly repeating the trip from 2012, I flew out on a Thursday afternoon from Stansted and returned on the Monday night - However this time as I was working, I did a half day in the morning, before driving and parking at the airport, catching my flight and arriving in Bremen in time to join Elena's preparty before the international day party took place in the city. Having arrived less than half an hour before, at the pre party I was already fondly reminded of how fun the Erasmus experience was, being able to catch up with my good friends, ... read more

A couple of huge days. We started out at 6.30am on Saturday morning in Antibes, France, jumped on the local train through to Monaco Monte-Carlo, then we started a road trip from there up to Lake Como in Italy. Stayed in a beautiful place on the lake, then early start Sunday morning, 7am we were on the road heading back to Vegesack, Germany. We travelled up through the top of Italy, into Switzerland, then climbed right up into the pass between Switzerland and Austria. Over 2000 meters above sea level. The views were absolutely incredible. I was terrified coming down all the hairpin bends, but was well worth the trip. Then we crossed into Austria for a short time, had lunch, then back into Germany. Imagine doing that in NZ - passing through 4 countries in ... read more

Just a few more lines that I missed and remaining photos. Today I went to German class with Phillip, boy what a difference living in a country can do to your comprehension! This was only their second year and they are all fluent speakers, but subtle placement of words or some grammar is eluding them. I was surprised to find I am much better this year in speaking and understanding some German.... read more

Had a home day, spent time around Gary and Philip’s new house, then down to the local Pub for a quiz night, didn’t do so good. Met up with Philip’s old housemates from Digby Crescent, Dinner with Steve and coffee with Jonathan – great to catch up with both, lots of things have happened in the intervening years. Went for a walk to the local Finsbury Park, There were about 4 HUGE circus tents – but walled up, some very expensive private function!! Boy would my Phillip loved to see what was there! After our Dinner with Steve, and lots of wine etc, Philip decided to stay home and Gary and I went out for the day to Peterborough. Peteborough has a very nice Cathedral and has a market town feel. We had a good day ... read more
