Liv Hambrett

Germany + Australia + Culture + Motherhood + Home

Life in Münster, Travel + Life Abroad


On a Sunday that opened with sunshine, grew grey and grizzly then threw in a bit of snow and a lot of rain before closing with skies of blue and white, Silke and I drove to Metelen to see Cathy. Metelen is a small village very close to Holland and Cathy herself lives a mere stone’s throw from the border. This excites me. You all know how I feel about crossing borders. We ate homemade Nutella meringue cake, wildberry cheesecake and drank coffee with Cathy’s Australian Cattle Dog, Jack. Jack is amazing. He hails from the Blue Mountains. He is a little piece of home trotting about the German countryside. I did note his farm instincts have been blunted somewhat, but he is bilingual, so you can’t have everything.

On the way home, Silks and I pulled over to take a few shots of the wonderfully enigmatic landscape. Barely a soul passed us by as we stood snapping on the endless road.

The results?

Not a soul in sight.

    It was wonderful to have you round, and it makes me sad that this was (probably) the last visit for a very long time.

    […] Liv is about to move to Bavaria. To be precise, she is going to leave Münster on March1, a date which is approaching shockingly fast. We had talked for ages about her visiting me, but somehow never managed to nail a date. So it took the pressure of “last chance!” to finally make her come to my place (courtesy of Silke, as no sane person would let Liv drive on German roads). […]
