I AM IN GERMANY AGAIN NOW. I'm back again after a trip.


Explanation:
We all know what these two sentences mean. Each of us seeks to render the meaning into English idiom. There is a rhythm that links the two sentences. I want to convey that as well as the meaning. English so likes the subject-verb order that I have simply reversed the sentences to end up in English where the writer started out in German.
