First things first.....

A trip abroad.......



An international flight (but of course da :-)....)......



A tryst with Frankfurt.....



Recurring experiences with calling cards......and electric stove.....



All alone in my life spanning a quarter century and more.......and I do mean alone......



Sharing space for an indefinite period with people other than family and friends .....



Relationship management with room-mates......



Full-time cooking .....



Roaming in a alien country.....alone..... for the first time......



No tiring after-work journey back home .....



Chilling/numbing sensation thanks to all-low single-digit temperature......



Getting used to complete strangers throwing a smile or a kind word to me....



There's a first...... for everything....for everyone....including moi.


p.s. Some points have not been listed for the sake of (my) discretion ;-) !!!

from my side - all these and more...
the most recent thought after returning home after an absence of more than 6 months being - "life out of perspective" my life or others', no clue.
