40 days

A lot can happen in 40 days. You could buy a new house, go on vacation, learn a couple (okay hopefully more than just a couple) phrases of a new language, eat 40 pints of Ben and Jerry’s (this is normal right?), run a marathon, or read several books. 140 more words


Gettin' it going

26 days and I’m shipping off to Frankfurt, Germany to begin my fellowship through the Congress – Bundestag Youth Exchange Program. Trying my best to enjoy the remaining days! 23 more words


I'm Going to Saarbrücken!

I finally found out that I will be living in Saarbrücken for my first two months in Germany. I will be attending the Carl Duisberg Center in the city for my language training, and I will get to explore all that the city has to offer. 115 more words

I have a family!

This past weekend I opened my e-mail to find an e-mail from someone I didn’t know. I shortly found out that this “someone” happened to be my host mom from my first host family in Germany! 94 more words


The One with Frankfurt and the First Ouch...

Remember how in my last post I said I had fallen asleep like 7 times while writing my blog that night? Yeah. Well, the thing is, I can’t actually sleep. 1,262 more words


The One with the Letter to Future Exchange Students...

This letter is directed mainly toward exchange students going to Germany, because that’s the only place I have direct experience with, but I would guess that it is probably similar no matter where you are going. 3,846 more words


What is CBYX anyway?

I will be going to Germany with a program called the Congress Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals. Thats a mouthful, huh?

CBYX is a program that is funded in part by the State Department, as well as by the German Bundestag. 332 more words
