Vogel des Jahres and blog update

Hello everyone!

I took an incredibly long break from writing on my blog due to some personal reasons. Finally I am back with some news. This blog will take a slightly new direction.

I would like to explore more of the world of travelling and learning new languages.

Additionally, blog posts will be a bit more personal, which means I will share more of the things I see around me in Germany every day.

Today I have learnt something new about Germany. Apparently there is a special and very unusual award given in Germany every year. It is called Vogel des Jahres (Bird of the Year). Tübingen (town where I currently stay in Germany) is famous not only for its University, but also for its beautiful nature. Luckily, it is easy to see many birds around here. The sounds of the local birds wake me up before my alarm clock goes on from time to time. The award Bird of the Year is given since 1971.

You can easily notice how Germans love birds (in Baden-Württemberg at least). In a local Müller store there is a big choice of Vogelfütter and even a CD of bird sounds 63 minutes long. Vogelkonzert am Waldbach. 🙂 Germans love to connect with the nature indeed.

Bis bald!
