From our new Home………

Dear Friends,
.
After nearly two years of planning, Bella and I have finally arrived in our new, ( permanent? ) home, Germany.
Of course, America is my home as much as Germany, so I hope I can travel between the two countries often. I still maintain a small place in Miami, but for now, my base will be Germany, until…………..?
As of now, we stay at a small apartment near Cologne, but I am actively searching for a much larger place up North, hopefully near the coast.
Until we have settled in, which I estimate will take at least another couple of months, I won´t be able to post at my usual pace, pls forgive me.
My pots and pans, cameras, china, utensils, etc., are still in a container on the High Seas.
But, when all the dust has settled, I hope we can proceed at our regular, about two posts a week, speed. After all, we´ve got to eat !  🙂
Until then, most of the dishes I´ll post will be food I have prepared, written the recipes for, taken pictures and stored them,  during the past few months.
.
Until soon,
Bella and Hans
.

.
So here is Miami, Florida, which we left behind.
Below that is Cologne, Germany, where we moved to (happily, I might add)  🙂

    Your favorite restaurant no matter the cuisine works equally as well….

  3. I am so glad to hear from you! I was thinking a few days ago wow, it’s been a while since Hans has posted. I am happy for you and Bella, so many new adventures will now be experienced! Plus, so many new recipes for your followers in the States to try out! My uncle Rolf Eiring would have been happy for you as well. May your days be peace-filled and exciting as you adjust to your new surroundings. Many blessings.

  4. Good luck in good old Germany!
    Ich frage mich manchmal wie es wäre zurück zu gehen, bin echt neugierig wie sich das anfühlt für dich – du warst ja sehr lange in den USA. Was hat den Ausschlag gegeben?
    Alles Gute!

  5. Hi Gisi,
    the decision was based on many small and a few large factors, but mainly on the fact that living alone in South Florida is no fun.
    The lack of culture, manners, humanity and the ever-increasing racism, as well as the small matter that I don´t like the heat, together with the extremely high cost of living, these were just a few reasons. Also, it is easier to travel in Europe and I can take Bella everywhere, most hotels and restaurants, etc.allow dogs on their premises.
    These are just a few of the many reasons.
    I hope all will work out and I am finally settled for good 🙂
    Life is Good !

  7. The best to you in your new home.  What a beautiful world both the old and the new.  My ancestry is German, but I’ve never been there.  It certainly looks beautiful.  Now you’ll have to get used to the cold of winter, but you got there just in time to enjoy spring, summer, and fall.  Love your posts.
