First stop: Austria

I spent 2 weeks at my parent’s home in Austria over Christmas. The whole family was there. It was a miracle that everything to do with my move from the UK to Austria went as well as it did. On the day we left there was no other way out of the country apart from the car ferry: planes and trains were delayed and many got canceled. Heathrow was shut down for days because of the snow. Christmas and New Year happened in good family tradition with lots of Japanese style food.

Tomorrow we are heading towards Germany for the annual MK get together of the Liebenzell Mission, which is always a fun time. MK stands for missionary kids. They are a funny bunch who have grown up in different countries all over the world – wherever their parents were working at that time. Many find life in Europe a bit difficult.

In 5 days I will take off from Stuttgart to go to Lusaka, from where I’ll take another plane for a short trip to Ndola, where somebody will pick me up to go to my destination: Chingola.
