Moving on

My life has changed so much, that I have barely had any time to think of my blog. This August it has been three years since I came to Germany in 2015. Many various things happened to me here and my opinion about living abroad changed many times back and forth.

Today I just want to be thankful for the opportunity to stay abroad, to experience a new life in Tübingen for the whole three years. It is time for me to move away from this place. In the very beginning I hated this small town, but gradually learnt how to like it. I cannot say I am in love with it at present, but I definitely do not hate my life here anymore.

Finding friends and getting a job is without doubt the biggest help for a newcomer to get alone with the different environment. I am not leaving Europe, I am moving to a much bigger city now. I feel that it will be easier for me to go through all the changes and adjustments again, since it will be my second time. I am sad I am leaving my friends in Germany, I am scared of the fact that I have to start it all over again. Where can I meet new people? Will I find friends? Will I do all right at the language school? I surely hope so, and I am not eager to be back to square one.

My life has changed and I have more responsibilities now. I have no choice, but to go on with all the difficulties that relocation to a new country brings. Wish me luck. I am going to miss you, Tübingen! I could never think of saying such a sentence three years ago. Time is an amazing thing.

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!
