Auf Wiedersehen und Hallo Dies!

Diesel has been traveling tons, and after his London trip, he spent one day in Germany. Literally: one day. One day flying in, one day flying out, one actual day in Berlin for his meeting.

Like a little kid, I have gotten into the habit of making sure Diesel knows that if he’s going to leave me by myself, he needs to bring me a present from his trip. With him traveling so much, this has become quite an expensive habit, but for a girl who got a belt (YES, a BELT) and a story book in ENGRISH (this is when I did not know any Engrish) from her Dad who was returning from trips, I decided to make up for the lame presents I got as a kid by, once again, putting the burden of my happiness on Diesel’s shoulder.

So this time, with only one day in what is arguably one of the coolest cities in Europe, he did very very good…Here’s what he got me (the BEST present EVER!). Thanks Dies!

German goodies

(that’s the reason why I gained over 10 pounds after my year in Germany!)
