My cousin Kim has visited us quite often in the past few years. It has been great to introduce her to Mainz and the area we live in. She loves to travel and one of the great things about being in Germany is the central location within Europe - you can be everywhere "relatively" quickly. Don't let me mislead you though, places can be farther away than you think.
Kim has now taken a civilian position with the military and has moved to Germany! She'll be living in Bavaria, southeastern Germany, about 3 hours by car away from us. It is going to be wonderful having part of my family in the area as well. We're already planning our holidays! On her initial trip over she had a day layover in Frankfurt so we spent Saturday walking around the market, drinking coffee and relaxing in the park. She was also the first of my family, after my parents, to meet Blaise. See you next weekend, Kim! :)
