Touching Down in Port Moresby somehow felt like coming home… Even though it was only my second time in the country.
While I was in Papua New Guinea during my spring break, I spent half of my time by the beach, and half of it in the capital, Port Moresby. No joke in saying that I could live there and am definitely made for the tropics.

Eid in the summer and Christmas in the winter, and I am DEFINITELY not complaining. I spent Christmas this year with my family in Germany and it was (as usual), filled with presents, good food, family, champaign, smiles, and good conversation. You can read last year’s post here.
So traditionally, I don’t actually really celebrate Christmas. When I’m here, in Heidelberg, however, I go all out. I can confidently say that this year I was part of the Christmas hype and first hand witnessed the stress of Christmas shopping (or in my case creating), decorating the Christmas tree, baking Christmas cookies, and even singing Christmas carols… even though we sounded awful.
As a farewell to summer here are the pictures I took when I wasn’t doing anything too special or traveling anywhere new, just hanging out and spending time with family. Looking back at it now, that’s what I miss most. This post doesn’t really have a ‘story’ behind it like my previous ‘Summer posts’ have because these pictures are simply a random collection of pictures I took over the two months of my stay in Malaysia. Farewell Summer. You were good.
