Katias transition

I live in Berlin but my home country is Greece. I was 4 years old when my family and I moved to Berlin. I don’t really remember what it was like, the only thing I do remember is that I didn’t want to move to Berlin. All my friends and relatives were at home. When we moved to Berlin, we found a house and my parents liked it but I didn’t. I was very unhappy. But by now I have gotten used to living here. However, I still hope that we move back to Greece. But I am also lucky, my house is next to a great school. Also, I have two hobbies, I go horse riding and I play the transverse flute. I have made awesome friends, but I do miss my best girlfriend. She lives in Kamena Vourla, that is my village in Greece. It is actually quite large for a village. But everyone knows everyone over there; it was great, when you had finished your homework, you could just go to your neighbours and play! In summer we were outside forever and we had water-bomb fights. It’s fabulous to live in the country. And you have a crystal clear blue beach right next to your house, it’s a wonderful dream. Germany is different. My biggest dream still is to move back to Greece.
