Growing up internationally has not always been easy. Especially the last few years where half of my heart is on one side of the ocean and the other half on the other side. Initially, when we moved to Germany I would throw myself a pity party often. And while I still do that every once and a while, I have learned an important lesson – take advantage of your opportunities! I could spend my time pouting about how much I miss Jon, about being a broke college student, about not being done with college yet… And granted, I do every once and a while, but for the most part, I don’t, because when am I going to be 21 again living in southern Germany, with my family, with sight-seeing opportunities right outside of our door? Never again.

So, that leaves only one option and that is to GET OUT THERE! And that is exactly what we did this past Saturday. We took the time to go explore 2 towns about an hour or so from where we live, and I took you all with me! I hope you enjoy reliving this day with me :)

At 5:25 on Saturday morning, my mom knocked on my door and woke me up. As a common German saying says, “first the work, then the fun”. So I rolled out of bed, got ready and by 6:30 my mom, my dad, Tobi, and I were in the car leaving the house. With Easter the next day a round of grocery shopping was necessary. After ensuring we had all of the Easter goods, we stopped by the bakery for some fresh rolls.
