Coming home after Helsinki, Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, Rome, Florence, and Venice


What happens when you’re traveling for a month? You get on a momentum and want to keep traveling.

When you finally return home, you feel like a stranger.

The book cases have been moved. The kitchen cabinets have been rearranged. The portraits have migrated to their new locations.

Nothing is the same.

And everything needs a good spring clean — a good scrub.

The backlog of e-mails look intimidating — too formidable to begin sieving through what’s spam and what’s genuine.

That’s when you realise that you can keep traveling. But the new arrangements of “Queen of Sheba” and “Winter — from the Four Seasons” draw you to your grand piano.

What has the classical guitarist who arranged these new duos been up to? You google “Robert Bekkers” and discover that you forgot to share this clip with your readers.

And then you reckon that you actually wouldn’t mind just settling down and enjoying the new domestic setting for awhile…. that is, before Vienna beckons in January.
