…I’m finally back in Canada. For the summer at least. I loved being in Germany so much, that on the flight back to Canada, I’ve already started to miss it! And being home, these boring grey buildings and vast parking lots which makes up a typical Canadian suburb just can’t compare to the rolling green hills, castles, and cute medieval towns that are all just part of daily life in Europe.
The past month has been filled with working on and mailing in about 7 different German grad school applications, and endless bureaucratic paperwork ranging from getting a new Canadian passport to replace my stolen one, to getting a short extension on my residence permit. Luckily, all that is finished so I will definitely be updating my blog once again on a regular basis!
My to do list currently consists of:
– finish writing my posts about Spain, Luxembourg and France!
– getting a gym membership
– eating all my dearly missed North American foods such as Chipotle, all dressed chips, red velvet cakes, poutine, deep dish pizza and s’mores pop tarts (this is why a gym membership is so necessary!)
– finding a summer job
– enjoying the sun as much as possible with friends
– obsessively checking my email/mail for letters from the grad schools I applied to (fingers crossed!)
And now for a photo recap of my year!

Counting down the days for Europe Part II!
