My last trip to Germany was in 1994. It was twenty years since I had seen my dear cousin Marion, so you can imagine how elated I was when I heard the news that she was coming for a visit in October with her daughter! Her first holiday in Canada was in 1965 and this was now her second time. We enjoyed some wonderful day trips around Southern Ontario together, but there never seems to be enough time to do all the things that we want to do.


Saying Aufwiedersehen was very emotional and I miss her already! I plan to go to Germany next year. Marion and I will go to several wondrous Christmas Markets around Stuttgart.

I miss you Marion and Lara!

    Marion’s first holiday to Canada was the same year I graduated.

    What a wonderful post. I’m glad you got to see her. By coincidence, my father grew up in Stuttgart and still has a sister there.

    It is wonderful to recover loved ones, and it is wonderful to share with them your life and beauty of your beautiful country. All post you’ve dedicated your cousin and her daughter show us how much you love them. I congratulate you for being able to enjoy this wonderful reunion. Éllas sure you have also been very happy at your side, you’re the best host and best cousin. The photo with luggage shows the amplitude of your closet, right? Seeing the beauty of your outfits are understood to need much space. LOL.

    Wow that is a lot of luggage… I did realize it is not yours…. hehe. Wonderful skirt she found for you! Well and on another note… If you really intend to come to Germany next year to “around Stuttgart… I might be there too… and we could even meet! I am flying to Stuttgart on Sunday before Christmas this year and I will go tot the Christmas market in Reutlingen with her. I shall take some pictures.
    I can imagine you miss them, but isn’t it wonderful you could spend great moments with them! ♥
