Am I still welcome here?

Originally I didn’t want to publish a post about the Eu Referendum in the UK. I’m sure everybody has already read about the circumstances and the results. The Leave campaign won with a narrow majority. Everybody I know is shocked, devastated and disappointed. My friends are of various cultural backgrounds like Czech, Polish, Australian, Scottish, Irish…

Bavaria in one weekend

I had waited so long for this weekend to come and now it has been already two weeks since we visited my parents and spent lovely two days in Munich.

Where, when, what?

The stressful time started: it is application period. Even if you can’t apply for the state unis yet, I had to handle a first rejection. I was applying for a private uni near Dortmund. The Universität Witten/Herdecke is a uni teaching to Humboldt’s principles. Unfortunately they only have 30 places and a lot more applicants thus…

Back In Town

But not really arrived yet. This time it was very hard to get on the plain. I was flying from Munich on monday evening after visiting my old work and meeting my best friend. Luckily she accompanied me to the airport otherwise I think I would have stayed in Munich. Obviously I was looking forward…
