My first time in Tübingen was a mess. I had an interview for a position that I didn’t really want and that went extremely bad. It was the last part of a very long train trip across Europe. I was alone and felt lonely. I left the city relieved and excited to get back home to my family in Greece. My life was a mess.

3 years late, this week, I came alone, but wasn’t lonely. I met interesting people and bonded with some of them in ways that I could never imagine possible in such a sort time. I spent my days attending lectures and my nights exploring the city, driving around the city surroundings with a borrowed car, eating local food and experiencing the nightlife. I stayed up until really late every night and woke up very early the next morning. I reached a new level of sleep deprivation, but I enjoyed it so much, it was totally worth it. I had drinks with an old friend who I hadn’t seen in 10 years (so much to catch up on). I saw the city in a different perspective, present in the moment.

This week made me think a lot about how far I’ve come and about where I want to be, what I want to achieve, who I want to be if I come back here after 3 more years. I left Tuebingen last afternoon extremelly tired, but very full of new experiences and woke up today in a different country. Goodmorning Belgium. We’re going to have so much fun.

ps. All photos by me, apart from the last one that was taken by a very talented friend.
