The summer before grade 6 my family moved to Germany.
We lived in military housing in Weitenung on Hoffnermattenstrasse (sorry, can't add the correct letters). The above link takes you to the small town/village we lived in. I can still find my house (well apartment) on the map....and find my way to what used to be the base by following the roads.
We lived there from August 1983 until August 1988, and I can honestly say they were some of the best times of my life... so far. ;) I made wonderful, life long friends and travelled to more places than my kids could ever imagine.
I keep typing and deleting :) I have soo much to say about my time over there..the places I went..the things I learnt...
