so today I have a confession to make.
most of the time I love this little city we call home. I love the old buildings and narrow streets, the castle on a hill. I love the cute cafes hiding around every corner and the parks by the river. And I really love that you can get all the way across the city centre on foot in less than 20 minutes.
But there are times when Marburg to me feels just too small.
Times when the West Coast girl in me just wants to go to Starbucks. Or, you know, the beach. When these narrow streets & same old cafes and shops seem tired. When it would be nice to spend the day in a large, bustling city without an hour long train journey to arrive there.
And when this happens, I often try and take a little time to see my city through new eyes. I take a walk, visit favorite places, wander. Take some photographs. Maybe try a new cafe or visit a favorite reading bench.
Because the truth is, there's beauty everywhere.
And you don't need a Starbucks to see it.
