Back to Lübeck
I drove back to Lübeck yesterday. There are a couple of reasons why I drove back. I have to manage some things for myself, mainly bureaucracy related. Then there is the problem that my aunt got the flu, and I really don’t want to get the flu too. I am usually pretty resistant against flu viruses, especially because I am often outside no matter the weather. Anyway, if someone else has it around you, there is the risk you will get it too. Yep, I am pretty paranoid about flu viruses and try to keep any risk out of my way (laugh). Talking about my uncle, the person I helped in another town, his health is as previously mentioned much better. However, it can not be ruled out that I need to help again, but I wouldn’t mind, because I miss Reindfeld already a little bit, not the town, but the nature there.
I like the city where I live, but a small town is not that bad either, that’s something I probably wouldn’t have said before. The small town was pretty boring, but the small size makes it easy to get into the nature faster, you don’t have to walk through several districts to find yourself in a forest or near a pond. Of course, we have parks and rivers in the city where I live, but that is still a difference, if you want to see more, you have to get out of the city. So, a small town is perfect for people who like to hike, that’s why I am missing it already a little bit. It’s funny that I wrote this now, because now I see how big the difference actually is, it’s funny because three days ago I complained in one of my posts, that not everything around the small town is nature, because I found country roads, railway lines and small villages behind forests.
I think both has its advantages and disadvantages. The surroundings of my uncles town are more rural, you get into the nature fast, even by foot, it’s perfect for nature photography. The city where I live, you have culture and architecture, not too bad for photography either. One plus about my city is that I could go shopping until 10 pm, and there are a lot of stores that have opened for so long. In the small town it’s much more difficult if you forgot something, they have two stores opened that long, but they might not be the stores where you get what you need. Generally, we usually drove to Lübeck to go shopping, because you find more stores there, and you have a bigger choice of products compared to Reinfeld. So, as said, I can see advantages and disadvantages at both places.
If you would ask me today if I would prefer to live in a small town or in a bigger city, my answer would be “Can I choose both?”. I don’t have the money to have a home at two places, but I could imagine to have two places for living if money wouldn’t be a problem. Bigger cities, smaller towns, I think I did now learn to like both. For now I am just back where I do live, to manage some things, and then let’s see if I need to go back to the town for another month, I wouldn’t mind.
