I spent the weekend in Heidelberg with my two life-long girlfriends who flew in from Spain and Greece, where they are teaching English. It was so fun to spend time with them in my old hood :p
I spent my first full day in Münster today. It was really great! My flight was, well, less than great. But I got through it and now I am enjoying the beautiful fall weather here in Germany. I love my flat and my flatmates, and am slowly starting to discover the city. Below are a few photos. Miss you already!The main university building. It is literally a castle. No joke.My room. It is soooooo cool. I don’t know if I’m cool enough for it to be honest ;pMy apartment building
Hello friends, how are you? I’ve been having fun traipsing around Europe with my little brother and our childhood friend who is conveniently studying abroad in Germany this summer. It feels so nice to be able to let loose completely and be around people who’ve known you your whole life. There’s nothing like it. After I spend time with them, I always stop and think why did that feel so different?
Because being known is everything. It is so important and I’ve missed that feeling a bit this year. You don’t realize how much your body and soul needs to be known until you’re placed in a new environment. I’m so glad to share these summer months with them. Below are a few photos from life lately. Enjoy!The neighborhood of Kreuzberg was my favorite spot in Berlin. So funky. So punk. So cool.Euro brother in Frankfurt.Bowling. Reader, I was HORRIBLE. Consistently horrible all ten rounds. My pride is still recovering.

Well, enough said.Hiking to the petting zoo with a class from school. The bus didn’t show up so it turned into a rather long adventure, but at least the scenery was pretty ;p
Have a good one!
Happy happy happy am I
Hello Spring, I thought you would never arrive! Welcome. Welcome. Welcome. Welcome. Did I say how happy I am that you’re here? It felt like you took your sweet time, but you were so worth the wait.
As you may have gathered, this winter was a bit rough for me. I like snow and reading and wool socks as much as the next girl, but by the end of March it was, well, let’s just say it was a bit much. Now that I can sleep with the windows open and show my pale legs to society, I am one happy lady.
Yesterday I went to Heidelberg to visit a dear friend. Everyone was out enjoying the warm sunshine. Live music wafted through the market square and I ate a ginormous gelato cone that later gave me a stomach ache from all the sugar but I didn’t even care. Spring in Germany is something special.
The tourists haven’t arrived, the towns are still waking up again from their long hibernations. This is our reward for surviving the last five months. Thank you God!
Hello friends! How are you? What’s new? My mood is much improved lately because the sunshine has been visiting us here in Germany, which does wonders for a person. I can’t tell you how much I missed it. If you live in a consistently sunny place, don’t take it for granted haha! Below are a few random iPhone photos from life lately. Enjoy 🙂I went to Hildesheim last weekend to visit my friends from the summer I spent there. Above is a part of the University of Hildesheim campus. Isn’t it pretty?Drinks with my sweet friend Alena! She is such a doll. I miss her!Woke up to fresh snow on Sunday. Such magic.Chillin with my favorite little guy Lasse, the son of friends 🙂My other main squeeze. He was only a week old when I arrived that summer and lived with his family as an Au Pair!Snow AND sunshine at my school.Found this cutie behind my school and petted his nose!Breakfast with my girl Elena. I may have spoon eaten Nutella…Colorful houses in the village where I work.A trip to Ikea in which I bought more than I needed. That place is like a casino- no windows, no natural light so you loose track of time. You could spend a week and all your money in there if you’re not careful!A bought this striped rug and I do not regret it.
Have a good one friends!
1. Yoga is not necessarily relaxing, especially in another language.
2. You don’t have to justify your life or tell people your ‘plan for the future’ if you don’t want to. It’s not required or even necessary
3. Any amount of sunshine is some kind of magic in late January.
4. Patience and all is coming.
5. For the love of God, you need to take out the trash more than once a month!
