Pondering “Home” and Misty Maastricht
I hope you’re psyched for another weekend. Woo-hoo! Sometimes it amazes me how quickly a week can pass. Sheesh. Even more so when you are busy packing up your bags and getting yourself ready for a flight half-way across the world! That’s right, Fleuropean is heading “home” for the Holidays!
As much as I’d love to bask in the wintery goodness of just one white Christmas, I’m always filled with an incredible sense of warmth knowing that I’m heading back to my roots to spend time and celebrate with loved ones.
As fun as it is being able to call two wonderful worlds “home”, I’m always caught off guard by the waves of sadness and excitement that take turns crashing over my psyche. Simultaneously feeling excitement at going “home” and sadness at leaving “home”. Confusing, huh?
Anywho, most of you probably know that 99.9% of the time, San Francisco, my favorite city by the Bay, is shrouded in a thick sea of fog. Okay, 99.9% is an exaggeration, but you get my drift. Understandably, I was amused to stumble upon my favorite city by the… river in a similar state of misty-ness.
The only ones that seemed to fully enjoy the cold air and the thick, grey skies were the birdies. It seemed to give them a sense of freedom, a new license to fly the friendly skies!
The seagulls in particular were going crazy, swooping low and sailing through the thick atmosphere.
Tomorrow I’ll be making my way toward Amsterdam, getting ready to fly the friendly skies with (*fingers crossed*) the same sense of freedom as the birds of Maastricht. I’m looking forward to including you all in my adventures back in California!
Have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
