It has come, at last. My time in London is over. Today is the last day, tomorrow by this time I will be back in Germany. It is really sad, but then again it has been five amazing months! What else could I ask for?
The suitcase is already packed – even though there are still things in my room that are supposed to go in there. I have no clue how to fit everything in, but isn’t it always like that? There are so many things that you collect over time and you never notice them until it’s time to part. I am so glad that my parents were here last weekend and took some of my stuff with them, otherwise I would be in a tight spot.
Today is a rainy day, it just like London to say goodbye with such an average day. Some people came and said their farewell, but there are some I’ll be visiting this evening for the last time (at least, for now). I am also watching some last DVDs, for as long as I have access to them: I watched Skyfall and Casino Royale, Inglorious Basterds and Captain America. The kind of movie I wouldn’t normally watch on my own. I had baked beans on toast with eggs yesterday for dinner, something I’ve come to like a lot. I also watched Germany’s Next Topmodel, which is of course rather lame of me. But oh well.
I went to Brent Cross, a lovely shopping center not too far from here and did some small shopping. I have never gone on a shopping spree, so this time was no different. I spent less than 15 pounds on three shirts, that’s not too bad, eh? After that, I paid a last visit to the Poundland, getting some last random things. A book called Combat to Catwalk, a bracelet and some chocolate. So now I’m well prepared to go home.
I hope all you readers have enjoyed my blog for the past months and that you will continue following my life in Barcelona. There will be some changes around here, obviously. This blog needs a new design! Thank you for staying with me, and next time I’ll be writing from Barcelona! Cheers!
