I hope you have all had an amazing summer so far. Mine has been eventful, to say the least and so I thought it was time for a good old life update post. Where should I start? (not just a rhetorical question, I’m genuinely thinking about where I should start.)
If you have been following my blog for a while you know that I went abroad right after my birthday, to the lovely country of France. There I took part in a concept called ‘workaway’ which is basically the same as work & travel, only that you don’t earn money but get to stay at your workplace for free in return of your help. I first stayed with a French family near Bordeaux and then at a hostel in Nice and both experiences turned out to be really rewarding. I got to know the French culture and language a lot better and I’m really missing the country, especially the French Rivera. I also went on a short backpacking trip to Italy from where I flew home to Germany. From this point onwards my summer was packed with meeting all my friends again, a lot of catching up and some exciting road trips including visiting one of my really close friends in Hamburg. Oh what would we do without Flixbus, am I right? Another highlight this summer was definitely my cousin’s prom, I can’t believe she has already graduated from High School – time is just flying! Her graduation party brought up a lot of memories of my own graduation and I still remember the moment so well when I finally had my qualification certificate in my hands. It was one of the happiest and most emotional moments of my life for sure and I almost wish I could repeat it. But speaking of my cousin’s graduation, her prom was simply amazing and I spent the night dancing until I couldn’t feel my feet anymore (despite changing my heels for more comfortable shoes).
How was your summer? Do you prefer Starbucks or Costa? x
