It’s been a few days since I arrived in Germany, and everything is so lovely, but Internet access has been a little spotty!
The first night, I stayed in a youth hostel (Jugendherberge) just off the Rhine river (on the Rhein Promenade).
My room overlooked a playground, and there were kids running around and playing for the entire day on Sunday! I’m traveling with a friend, and once we’d settled in, we walked around, bought meals to-go, and generally took in the sights.
I’m just loving this so much—so happy I’m in Europe, that I have a buddy to do this with, and that I had such a good experience on my first couple of days here. When I came back to my room, I even found a sweet roommate who was happy to welcome me to Europe, and who made for a great conversation partner!
We’ll be settling into our dorms tomorrow and getting registered for our classes at the Geothe Institut, and I really have no idea what to expect.
If nothing else, I hope to find some Spaghettieis soon!
