Back in Germany!

Hey everyone,

Sorry for writing soooo late, but we are back in Germany since Monday morning. We were lucky to arrived Frankfurt early in the morning, before it got closed because of the snow….

Johannes now is in Koblenz and Verena in Grevenbroich. We both didn’t have a problem with the time shift and are pretty well. We really enjoyed out Australian trip and are looking forward to do something similar (e.g. the semester abroad in our Masters) in another country soon.

We hope we will see you all soon, now that we are back.

Third Sunday of Advent

Today already is the thirs Sundav of Advent and we only have one week left in Australia. Furthermore, only 11 days are left before Christmas…

Light the Advent candle three               Wir sagen euch an den Lieben Advent.
Think of heavenly harmony                   Sehet die dritte Kerze brent!
Angels singing “Peace on Erth”              Nun tragt eurer Guete hellen Schein
At the Blessed Saviour’s birth.               Weit in die dunkle Welt hinein.

Candle, candle burning bright,               Freut euch ihr Christen,
shining in the cold winter night              Freuer euch sehr!
Cndle, candle buring bright                    Schon ist nahe der Herr
Fill our hearts with Christmas light.

Wicket number 10

Australian Christmas Postbox
Australian Christmas Postbox

Only two weeks to go! Get your wishes in the mail … 🙂 And remember, ‘no standing – reindeers only’!

About the mailbox: This mailbox stands right in the center of Adelaide at Victoria Square, one of the busiest places around here. It doesn’t seem like it, but the mailbox is something like 4 meters high (without the hat). It’s huge … On the front it says ‘Santa’s mailbox’ and on the left (the white sign) it says ‘no standing – reindeers only’ (looks just like a regular sign that prohibits parking/standing on streets).


Hey everyone,

We had a wonderful sunny anbd nice day out at the Great Barrier Reef! We both did two introductory dives (with scuba tank, stinger suit,…) and snorkeling. We saw lots of cool fish and corals of course … and had lots of fun 🙂
