This is our first night in Munich! We moved again, this time from Hamburg to Munich. We are staying at an AirBnB for two months now, hoping to find a good place very soon. While I was sitting on the train with Matilda today it dawned to me that we don't have a home at the moment. We don't have this place you open the door to and know the smell or every corner of it. Some of our stuff is sold again or on its way down to Munich to be stored away until we have found a place to live.
It seems there are all sorts of ideas of what 'home' is - The place you grew up, or live now as an independent person (however you like it). The place you own or lived longer than a certain amount of time, or the place you have all your stuff at - some like to think it is where the heart is or the people you love. I have to say, I haven't found the answer for this question myself yet...but I guess I like the idea that it gives you some sort of good & comforting feeling. The feeling where you can switch of, relax and being able give people blind orders to find something for you ...I don't know, I like the idea of having a home and it is what I am really looking to these days. A home where we can start routines again, find places for things where they should be, smell our home-cooked meals when we open the door and spend enough time at that we can see pot plants grow out of their pots in which they were first potted....
Wish us luck that we will soon find a good place for us to live - in order to make a home

While being in Australia we also made sure to stay for a week in our beloved Tasmania. It is such a special place and I never get tired of it - there seems so much to explore, try and taste. This time we went with friends and after a few days in Hobart drove up the East coast to stay the remaining days in Orford. Three photos I took during our time in Hobart.
Happy weekend friends!

While we were staying with Wills family in Fremantle we decided to go to Rottnest Island for a few days over my birthday. It is a 30 minutes ferry ride to what it seems to be paradise. The beaches are simply amazing around this small island and you can very easily get around by bike or just walking.
The water was crystal clear and warm. Matilda loved to get her little legs held into the water ... I wish I would have taken more photos there but you can get a better look on my Instagram.

Two more photos of our mornings in Perth.
One thing I have noticed straight away after we have been back is the amazing light in Australia. It seems to fuel people with so much energy. I wish you could bottle it up and use it during the colder and darker months here in Germany ...
