Pre-Christmas wonderland

On the weekend I went home to Bavaria to see my parents and to take a break from Berlin. Don’t get me wrong, I love Berlin. As a country potato though it is quite tiring and I needed some time off from the big city life. Furthermore I felt like I would be happier coming back…

Where is home?

Wow, three months since my last post even though it happened a lot. I feel a bit guilty but in the same time I think I needed the break. After I’d left London I didn’t feel to well either, sadness and excitement overcame me. The two weeks in Berlin working for my host family flew…

Time to say goodbye

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…

“In Dublin’s fair city…” – Holiday Éireann

For the half term holidays in the spring term the Australian and me, we decided to visit a city both of us hadn’t been to before. Therefore we booked flights from Stansted to Dublin for the Thursday at half past six in the morning (I still don’t know who is so stupid to book such early…
