It was about 2 years ago that I left the US for the first time. I was going to be studying abroad in Germany for a semester and I while I was definitely excited, I was also terrified. I never could have guessed how much that experience would shape the rest of my life, however.

Two years later, I certainly still have a great interest and passion for German culture and language, but I am also now forever entwined in it. Although I am now currently living in the states again, I will be returning to Germany soon and cannot wait to experience all the adventures ahead of me. 

Throughout the next few months I will be posting about my past experiences, as well as my preparations for my next trip across the ocean (it’ll be a one-way ticket this time!). Stay tuned!
