Whew! We finally moved last Saturday, and I’m happy to report that everything made it to our new flat safe and sound. In case you’re interested, we now live in Andernach (site in German – sorry, I couldn’t find a good one in English). The town has about 30,000 inhabitants and is next to the Rhine (just a few kilometres upstream from Bonn), but also close to the Eifel (deutschsprachiger Link). Both offer a lot of beautiful scenery and opportunities for outdoor activities like hiking and biking.
Apart from a few very minor scratches, our furniture is still in one piece and mostly in its new place, about half of the 50 or 60 moving boxes are unpacked already, the kitchen is fully functioning and we even have curtains and lamps in every but one room. As you can see, the phone and internet connection is functioning as well (the Telekom managed the transition without a glitch, yay!), which is good.
I’ve been offline for a couple of days, so I have a lot of online-reading to catch up on, but I have little time for that before everything is unpacked and sorted. Besides, the weather is absolutely gorgeous here right now, so I much prefer to spend some spare time on our new balcony instead of in front of the computer. We really need a wireless internet connection so I can combine the two.
