More German vocab? Less recap? More photos? Less personal detail? Better layout? I need to hear from you!
On Saturday, we journeyed three hours by train to reach Heidelberg, one of Germany’s traditional University towns. This gorgeous city is also known as one of the most romantic in all of Germany, and that was proved by the multiple couples we saw hiking around for engagement photo shoots.

Week three of our stay here in Horb is over, which means that we are halfway done with our Preparatory Language Program. Our time here is flying by, and many of us have been discussing how sad we are going to be when we have to leave our families and our homes that we have established here. I have certainly developed a lot of love for my little village called Ahldorf, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. Continue reading “Thoughts and Things”
So much activity lately for such a hidey creature like myself! I have spent much of the past week curled up on the couch with my studies, blog, or Netflix. My batteries can take a while to recharge sometimes, especially when I’m working my brain so hard, so I’ve been spending a lot of time relaxing lately. I’ve also developed a serious problem with consuming chocolate, and have been on a violent rampage eating everything from Nutella to powdered hot chocolate mix. I know that sounds super interesting, and I’d love to share the details, but for now, here’s an update on what I’ve been up to when I’m not on the couch or stuffing my face.

I turned a corner that marks the last two Kilometers of that particular route, and it began to rain hard enough to warrant me stuffing my iPod and Fitbit into my sports bra in an attempt to keep them dry.

I have 23 minutes until I have to leave for school, so I decided to see if I can speed up my posting process. The past few posts have each taken over an hour to write, and I’m sure I can reduce that if I make an attempt. To make this easier, I am writing a recap post (also because I already said I would). Here goes! Continue reading “Time challenge”
The gorgeous, rolling landscapes of Germany provide an ideal backdrop for a vibrant lifestyle filled with peace and happiness. I am still adjusting to this unbelievably comfortable lifestyle, and being the easy-to-please lifelover that I am, I have very few criticisms. I am, however, entirely able to comment on the aspects of German life that stand out the most, particularly to one who has never before left the North American continent. I will fill you in on vehicular habits, insects, and a few stereotypes that Californians may have about Germans. Continue reading “This and That”
