anywhere i lay my head

i'm baaaack.
to be honest i can't really be bothered detailing my adventures in germany, but a picture tells a thousand words, so here's a whole lot of words for you.

on the tram in freiburg

l-r: me, janet, tina

day trip to strasbourg, france

mmm, apfelsaft


night out in munich

day trip to basel, switzerland

bmw museum


berlin wall
our hostel room in cologne, aka the fortress of awesomeness. cleanliness is apparently not our strong point.

cruise down the rhine

the downside of this trip is that now that i'm back in australia, i'm bitterly disappointed. this is a snippet of my tirade directed towards my family in general:

me: australia is awful. if you go to the country here, there's cows. if you go to the country in germany, there's bloody castles everywhere.
mum: it isn't that bad. living in australia does have its advantages.
me: yeah but it's not exactly the hub of fucking civilisation, is it ?

anyway, my point is, as soon as school as over i'm off to europe and i'm never coming back - how i will execute this is another matter. since my grandfather was swiss my father had the chance of taking out citizenship until the age of 18, and he never did, which pisses me off even more. he regrets it now, but that doesn't make it any better, does it ?
if you're in europe and willing to marry me temporarily with the next few years so that i can gain citizenship, let me know, mmkay ?
