Hallo, herzlich willkommen! My name is Holly, and I am a 28-year-old Californian native currently living in Potsdam, Germany. I earned my bachelor’s degrees at Sonoma State University in 2018, and spent a year studying abroad in Tübingen in southern Germany, for the 2015-2016 school year through CSU IP‘s exchange program. I am now in my third semester in a master’s program for Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation at the University of Potsdam.
The purpose of this blog was to document my experiences while studying abroad, but it has now been almost four years since that program ended. Now, I use this website to make general updates about my life and adventures with my partner, Kyle.
I appreciate and encourage any and all sorts of feedback or questions, so feel free to reach out at any time. Thank you for checking out my site!
Also, for my senior thesis at SSU, I created another website at The Green Why. Feel free to head on over there and learn a little bit about the differences and similarities in environmental outlooks between Germany and the United States. I plan on updating it occasionally with more current information, but don’t hold your breath.
