Tonight is our last night in Kiel. Tomorrow we move all our stuff back to Britty’s parents house, then next week its off to Amsterdam!! Then it is back to OZ to look for work.

It is a funny feeling to be packing everything up, Kiel has been such a cool place to live, and I have had some great times here. Looking back over the time, we have certainly had a lot of excitement. Summer was especially good, the weather was fantastic and there was so much to do. Going to the beach, riding the bikes, and just generally spending as much time outside as possible was really nice. Not to mention the World Cup, Kieler Week, and the fun associated with those events!

Now that winter is here we are obviously spending a lot more time inside, and without the fast Internet access I think I would have gone nuts. Sometimes though it is really nice to go outside in the really really fresh winter air, and over the last weeks we have been going out for a run at night. I have really enjoyed the change in Temperature, and the change in general. I am still however looking forward to the warm Brissy weather. I will be nice to see the sun most days.

Today finally produced some snow!!!! Yes, on the last day in Kiel, it snowed. I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go outside in the snow and take some photos. Only a few centimetres of snow fell, but it was enough to give everything a white covering. You can check out the photos here, and the best below.

The view out the back window of our place, or should I say old place.


The kids playground over the road.


Cars completely covered in snow.


The small intersection on the other side of the car park.


A random front yard covered with snow.

I think I remember doing some blog posts about my plan to collect the beer bottles of the beers I try here in Germany. Well yesterday I placed the bottles I collected on the table, and this is the result. There were some really nice ones, but after trying all these I still don’t know what my favorite is.

I actually didn’t gain too much weight from trying all these beers! Bit surprising really.

Well that just about does this post. Tomorrow I am going to pack up my computer for the trip home. So this is actually my last post from my own computer in Germany!! Have a great weekend where ever you are, and if you live in Australia, see you soon.
