It has been great! (by German standards) I have to admit that I am actually a bit looking forward to autumn. All the colourful leaves rustling beneath your feet and the nebulas ascending in the meadows create a very special atmosphere that I don’t want to miss. But to return to the point: Let’s celebrate summer first! For me, the clearest sign for the arrival of summer is the diversity of available fruits. No matter if strawberries, …
