No champagne bottles popping yet.
It’s been awhile! Welcome back into a slice of my life, and where better to start than the biggest date of the year: Election Day.
Election night proved to be one of those moments in life where the goosebumps reappear and you feel like part of the greater good — at least that’s how I felt. President Barack Obama’s victory speech had me choked up, and for once, I really connected with each word. I know the various buzzwords are meant to illicit such a reaction, but I couldn’t help but smile and be proud of my country, if but for a night.

Officially I can say, after a little over a week back in the United States, I miss the laid-back, carefree nature of Deutschland. Over in Germany, my routine was based off which hour of the day I decided to indulge in a brew — the correct answer, of course, is any hour of the day, but I digress. The unique part of Germany, which made the trip truly unforgettable, is the social component, something I haven’t quite been able to find Great Falls. No matter what day of the week, or where you wander, you are sure to run into young, compassionate people who would rather reestablish the Berlin Wall than miss an opportunity to connect with you. I cannot wait to go back.
With that in mind, here are a few stories along the way of my travels in Germany. There are always more to share, but in hopes of keeping this (somewhat) concise, I offer you a few of my favorites. Plus this trip needed some foreclosure, amirite?
It’s about time I update ‘Murrica (USA! USA! USA!) with my German jaunt and… actually… you know… write in this blog (one day, I’ll even design it!!! #ambitionforlife). And by write in this blog I mean litter my text with YouTube videos and encourage you all to partake in a scavenger hunt of sorts. Also, I promise not to reuse every Instragram photo I’ve already posted. Alsoalso, this may or may not be the truth. Alsoalsoalso, with my perpetual hangover comes constant scatterbrained thoughts.
