Done Deal!Posted: March 28, 2012
Just on 15 months ago I described “Dulmen: seems to be a lovely village, district really, and we look forward to coming back, hopefully in better weather. Vast flat expanses of crisp white snow suggest a summer view of lush green fields.”
Today, it’s spring!!! Beautiful, blossom filled, warm and sunny days! Quite the opposite of when we arrived.
We have come back to sell Cubby and are delighted that the selling process was as easy as the buying process. We could not have hoped for things to go more smoothly. The team at Dumo assessed Cubbys condition and offered a fair exchange. We deregistered as temporary “Coesfeld” residents and closed our bank account – done and dusted in half a day.
Now we have now sold Cubby, homeless and vehicle less we are not sure what to think, and surprisingly are emotionally neither here nor there! Mostly our thoughts are preoccupied with the logistics of getting home and wondering about the outcome of the baggage handlers strike today at Frankfurt airport!!!
We think positively and wait and see.
PS: For those economists and those just plain curious, the outcome of the buy/sell idea:
Accommodation and Car with deisel fuel – 15 months:
Including fluctuating exchange rates, around $32,000!!! We are happy with that!
