Sturmfrei (adj.)

Origin: Germany

Lit. “stormfree”; the freedom of not being watched by a parent or superior; being alone at a place and having the ability to do what you want


Well, it’s not my parents or “superiors” that watch me, but still, I will be without supervision next week and wow, I am so looking forward to it. What I usually do with such freedom is pretty boring — stay up way too late, drink wine, wander around the city, shop… Nothing scandalous. But still, it all feels scandalous because I don’t get to do it very often.

My suitcase is packed — overpacked, is more like it — but I decided not to care and to take what I want with me. Making fashion decisions before travel is way too stressful and that’s one less thing I have to worry about now. So I am ready for anything.

It will be weird to fly to Frankfurt tomorrow and to not have to catch a connecting flight to Budapest. But I have some sort of a strange love affair with Germany that I can’t quite explain, so actually being able to stay there for a week will be magical. I really don’t know why I love Germany and the Germans so much, but I do, ever since I was a little girl. My favorite band was German when I was a teenager, two out of my three great loves were German… Must explore this further… In person. Next week. All the German I can get. All the time.
