Woke up to snow today which was absolutely fantastic, a beautiful dusting of what looked like icing sugar on ginger bread houses.
Today is the day we got settled in, the apartment that we have chosen is lovely it has everything we need other than a washing machine, not too sure if there is a laundry mat or other laundry facilities in the town, I highly doubt it as the town is really little ( which makes it really cute).
On the drive into Schwarzenbach you will see a gorgeous café with a smiling croissant, we decided to go their for breakfast as we had no food in the apartment yet. The lady behind the counter was super sweet and spoke a little English, enough to get a coffee and pastry each for breakfast, it was soooo good!
We decided to go for a drive and find the supermarkets that we saw while were driving to get McDonalds 30 mins away from last night when we realised that there is nothing open on a Sunday, lucky for us the two supermarkets REWE and Netto are literally 5 min drive from the apartment.
They don’t really speak English here, so please make sure you learn a little German, only if it is to say hello, goodbye, I don’t speak German, how much is the bill that will pretty much get you through shopping and eating out. Make the effort at least to speak a little German considering we have come into their country! Shopping is pretty standard it all looks the same and if you are unsure of what something is then the pictures are pretty accurate. We decided it would be cheaper to make our own food but everyone is different, the problem is the lack of restaurants in a close proximity. I have my first appointment today to meet the Dr, I am super nervous and apparently I am also booked in for a procedure called Endemologie which i have no idea will entail! Its all pretty surreal to be here and to have this day finally come.
Meeting Dr Stutz for the first time was a little scary, I have no idea why as he is so lovely. His grasp on the English language is impeccable! After meeting with him I was ushered up stairs to meet Jutta his wife who is responsible for the Endemologie. Its basically a machine that helps from my understanding to break down the fat as much as possible before the operation, this helps Dr Stutz during surgery to get as much out as possible. I am all for that!!!
