We had just moved into our new apartment when I had to go on a business trip. I probably would have pushed one of my colleagues to go if it wasn’t a trip to Germany (my passport was about to expire 4 weeks later and I kind of kept it on hold to renew it for way too long). So I decided to pack my suitcase literally two days after moving into our new place keeping in mind that I could do the express passport renewal much faster in Germany than in India.
I will post about our move separately but you can imagine how it looked like when I was opening all boxes searching for my formal (and warm!!) clothes for the biz trip. (Side note: If you are moving houses and need to go for a trip just about the same time, please do listen to all the people who advise you to pack your suitcase for the trip before packing boxes!)
Anyways… I managed to pack my little purple suitcase and was surprised to fly off with not more than 17 kg (check-in and hand luggage) out of which around 5 kg were office material for my meetings in Germany.
Still I had to decide carefully what to take and what to keep when I was about to return home to Mumbai a few days later. Here is what I brought back with me:
Looks yummy, huh?
Most of the chocolates and sweets were meant for friends and colleagues (who enjoyed the Gummibärchen as much as I did when I was a child). Some of the Schwarzbrot (brown bread) and cheese is still left and will be enjoyed at our housewarming brunch soon.
I would love to hear from you which food from your home country you miss most? And have you been able to find it anywhere in India?
