Finally there was an opportunity to escape the tropical heat, back to where i was born. Eating food we grew up with, smelling the fresh cool dry air, catching snowflakes with your tang, sipping on hot "Gluehwein" , but more importantly, being with family and old friends.
There are amazing places on this planet, and i can call myself lucky to get to most of these corners. But there is something about a place you grew up. There is some emotional attachment, and i must say, as older as i get, and as more as i travel, as more i learn to appreciate. Appreciate everything, not only nature and wildlife around us, not only beaches, forests, rivers, waterfalls, but also cultures, smiles, friends, good company, laughs, visions, food, smells, sounds ... everything is not taken for granted anymore. It's all special and different, but then also the same. Now as i have really confused you, i will go back to pack my bags for the next trip to explore this beautiful planet :)
