Visiting Oberursel

29 Sep

So, as you can probably imagine, deciding where to live in a new country can be quite a daunting task.  Right now we are in temporary housing in Frankfurt until our things arrive from the USA.  I was quite opposed to this initially, wanting instead to just have a place to settle into and get down to the business of “moving in”.   I am  publicly admitting that my husband was right when he assured me temporary housing would be a good thing.  I am realizing that we have so much to learn and consider in order to make the best choice possible.  So, I wanted to start taking advantage of this “research” period right away.  Once again, Kim was a great sport and accompanied me to Oberursel ( a small town in the Taunus region just outside of Frankfurt that was recommended to us).  It was of course ADORABLE and I sort of fell in love.  Here is why:

Pretty cute right?  Okay, so it’s definitely not settled that this is where we’ll be living.  We still have LOTS of looking/researching to do.  But, if everywhere is as charming as this town, we might have a very tough decision on our hands.
