Auf Wiedersehen, Deutschland!

Not actually my new home -- it's the reading room of the Library of Congress in Washington, D. C. 

Sadly, our time in Germany is quickly coming to an end, and it's time to return to the U. S. after three years. At the end of June we're relocating to metropolitan Washington, D. C. I'm excited to be close to our nation's capital and all the culture and history, but very sad to be leaving Europe. Also I'll finally be living less than an hour's drive away from family, so that's very exciting after 24 years as a military spouse.

I feel so lucky to have been able to live in Germany -- I've visited 28 countries so far, some of them more than once, and next week I'm taking a final trip before we leave: a week-long cruise to Norway! I know I haven't posted that much about traveling, but I'll try to post after I return -- we have a week or so after the movers take everything and we actually board of final flight to return. I don't know how often I'll be able to post over the summer as things will be rather hectic finding another place to live yet again -- I'm really hoping this will be the very last move -- this will be our eighth major move in the past 24 years and I'm really over it.

And bloggers, if you have any suggestions for great bookstores, libraries, restaurants, museums or anything cultural in the Baltimore/Washington area, I'd love to hear about it! I can't wait to explore my new city!
