We took an impulsive decision to move to Dresden and see how it goes. Then it was the matter of finding accommodation somewhere in the Eastern side of the city, as close to Loschwich as possible. We wanted to be near the forest for our daily hikes, but a short tram ride away from the centre, for its art, food and culture.
Against all odds, we managed to find a fantastic home on a quiet street in Weisser Hirsch. We love our neighbourhood and we feel part of a small community. Our neighbours are joyful and fun, and we always joke that we are like a small family living in the same building. We are blessed that both our neighbours speak English, having lived abroad for many years. And now that we are finally settled in Dresden, we endeavour to learn the local language and while challenging, we are excited to acquire a new skill. We are grateful for the friends we made here who help us feel more settled than ever before. Who knew that after 45 countries, it would be the city of Dresden that will steal our hearts for good.
While we remain enthralled by adventure and travel far more than you’ll find us home, we have never before experienced that absolute joy of returning home, to a city we both love. We couldn’t be prouder to call Dresden, our home.
