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

My time as an Au Pair is nearly over. My things are packed, half of it is already with a transport on its way to Berlin and I had to leave London last Friday, as the family and me are in Berlin for two weeks before they go on holiday. It was very hard to say goodbye…

Am I still welcome here?

Where, when, what?

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…
