I went home over the weekend to visit family for the last time before the end of my placement here. It was short but good to see everyone, and we walked by the quay even though it was much rainier in England than in Idstein (no surprise there…). Nothing much exciting happened on my trip home aside from having to stay an extra night in Amsterdam due to a missed connecting flight. Sometimes it’s nice to go home and relax for a bit.
So far the summer in Idstein has been almost unbearably hot (35°C!!), mostly due to the geography of the land around us as we’re landlocked, but the aircon in the office makes it much more enjoyable and not so humid. We get a lot of thunderstorms too, which is all fine and good when you’re indoors but getting caught in one isn’t so much fun. Basically, the weather has been very good and we’re doing our best to make the most of it. I think we have a trip planned to Frankfurt for Saturday, which will be 30°C – we were also looking at the weather for our trip to Malta and it’ll be around the same temperature.
