My (German) Journey Back to Healthy

This incredible weather makes me long for better health. Coughing up a lung every few hours is not conducive to visiting Franconia's many swimming hot-spots, from indoor/outdoor swimming meccas such as Herzogenaurach's Atlantis to the city of Pottenstein's beloved "Freibad". I'll be lucky if I can manage to get Lukas' baby pool filled up. But anything is better than sitting inside, longing for the energy to play with Lukas again. At the very least I'll be able to get into my swimsuit and dip my feet while he splashes around.

When I am finally healthy again, I promise I will not take it for granted. Not on second of it.

Germany's flowering apple- and Costania trees as well as the radiant fields of yellow raps flowers - are doing their best to cheer me up, and since so much of recovery depends on your mental state, I think it's just a matter of days until they're successful.

I'll keep you posted!
