Back in the day traveling anywhere was a big deal. It took hours at the least, and some trips lasted for years. I’m so glad I live now, when I can go from Geneva, Switzerland to Atlanta, Georgia in less than 12 hours. We got back to the states this past Friday, and what a whirlwind it was! The time zone changed on us 6 hours, we changed our surroundings totally, and blessed English is being spoken everywhere. I never thought I would be this excited to come back to the states, but I am.
You know you’ve been in Europe too long when you want to say “genau” every 3rd sentence, when you see signs in English and think they look funny, when you read the name of the sports building on campus and say “goom-nah-zee-oom” like the Germans pronounce it. Yes, it will definitely take a little adjusting now that I’m back. But I’m ready for the challenge.
It was a long-short summer, and I’m not sure I’m ready for it to be over.
