I have to admit I did a bit of a crazy thing: right in the middle of the exam session I went home to Austria for a whole week!
Well, let me explain: The main reason for going home just before exams ended, was my cousin getting married. Otherwise I’d probably waited until exams are over in order to go on holidays (like any sane person would…) But given the facts and the circumstance that I happened to have 13(!!) days without any exams right in the middle of June, I decided that instead of coming home just a couple of days for the wedding and stressing everyone out (including me), I’d stay the whole week. Easy.
It was a gorgeous week of early summer, filled with a beautiful wedding, barbecues on our terrace, motorcycle rides, a fashion photo shoot, many coffees in the sun and lots of cake, a walk in the narrow streets of Salzburg, going to the ballet with my sister, hiking with my dad and just being home. ❤
I suffer of a very particular case of home sickness – I only ever get it when I’m at home. When I am away, I’m mostly happy and don’t miss being at home very much (apart from that special occasion, when my relatives send me photos and make me miss them). But once I’m home, I realize how beautiful it is, how cozy and lovely and I miss being here all the time. I am not entirely sure if any of that makes any sense – but to me it does. 🙂
I’m back in Rome now – for exactly two more weeks. I’m charged with energy to finish those exams and in a bit I’ll go on holidays again: back home to Austria!
