In a few hours I will step into the Soyuz capsule with my colleagues Oleg Kononenko and Don Pettit. Six months flew by. After we undock we will orbit Earth two more times. Then my space mission will be over, after 193 days. I am returning with mixed feelings. I will miss living in space enormously. The wonderful feeling of floating, the views, the important work I could do onboard and the people with whom I shared these experiences. But I also want to see my family and friends again. And I want to enjoy fresh air, the sun in my face and take a shower that I have lived without for six months up here. Time to leave. See you back on Earth!
