Goodbye Germany: Ubuntu columnist Alex Smit-Stachowski intends to trek back to South Africa
(Editor: Alex Smit-Stachowski is speaking in her column about life as a South African now living in Germany. The South African journalist lives in Krefeld, in North Rhine-Westphalia/ Germany).
© Ubuntu columnist Alex Smit-Stachowski will leave Germany and to go back to South Africa, her birthplace. Her most important reason for this, is love.
I recently flew to South Africa to have a short holiday with the man I had fallen in love with. After spending five days in Johannesburg, I decided that within the next year, I will move back to my mother country.
Leaving Germany – with its modern, efficient business-like manner and thriving economy for the multicultural, often haphazard and conflicted country at the bottom of the world map is not an easy decision but one I am making for several reasons – the primary one being love.
