|Overlooking Manhattan for the last time|
Goodbye New York! Two years ago I came to the Big Apple from a small town looking for bigger things, exiting a protected phase in my life... and I found the most fantastic place to live in the world! A lover of art, music, fashion and languages I fell hard for the city's crazy diversity and never wanted to leave. I feel like the day was quickly approaching when I had to board the airplane for Germany. I'm not sure if anyone can understand all of the feelings I'm having at this stage. For me this blog has become a resource to tap into for my own memories of experiences, love and laughter I shared with my friends in New York City. I fondly recall the moment I came to Manhattan.
Nevertheless my visa expired and I flew back to Germany two days ago, boohoo - back to my family and friends, back to my home country. Let me tell you, it was one of the hardest moments I ever had to go through in my life, leaving my boyfriend and all the other people I love behind plus leaving the most marvelous city on earth! Now that I am back I feel like a stranger - an adventurous, outgoing, curious, thrill-seeking young girl misplaced in a quiet, harmonic village where shops close at 8pm and the Chief of Police knows everyone by name. However, I will hopefully move to Berlin soon and also keep posting pictures of New York. Adjusting was only simplified by my wonderful sisters and my best friend Yasemin who spent more than one and a half years with me in New York. I'm pretty sure though that my "new life" will get back to normal soon and be as exciting as it was in the Big Apple - so stay tuned!
