Moodboard: Heidelberg

16 years ago I spent a few months studying in Heidelberg. Yeah, I’m that old. No Euros, no low cost travel, no internet. No internet!!! So that really meant being abroad, away from your family and friends. I may or may not sound like a granny but, really, those were the old days… I had my first brunch there when it wasn’t even called a brunch, I used payphones to call home, I wrote letters, I cooked lots of Tortilla de patatas because before globalization there were still things that we didn’t know from other cultures, I spent a huge amount of time in trains, I tried to surprise my best friend in Geneva but didn’t met her because there weren’t mails or mobile phones to warn her… I had a great time. It was disastrous, fun, scary and wonderful.
This weekend I’m taking my mum and P. to Heidelberg and I just can’t wait. It’s going to be a walk down memory lane and I’m really looking forward to it. I guess everything is going to be different (16 years have passed!) but I bet Heidelberg is going to be as charming as ever!
