My Next Adventure

May 24, 2007

As of May 12 I am officially a Rice alum! I’ve moved out and said goodbye. Now I’m living in Germany for 10 weeks and then traveling around Europe for 2 weeks. This is the craziest thing I’ve ever done. I’m working as an au pair in a small Bavarian village, Vilsheim, and trying to get by with my non-existent German. I’ve met some great people so far and even went to a party at the university in Landshut, the nearest city of 60,000 people. I’m loving it here and am highly amused by the obsession with American culture. Almost all of the music is American. When watching television most of the shows and movies are American shows dubbed with German (they even have Law and Order here!). Any product they can they slap “American-Style” on here sells much better. I can hardly believe it.
So I am back in Europe, ‘where the history comes from,’ and can’t make up my mind what I want to see. I need to explore Landshut and Munich since they are close by. Prague is definitely on the list of places to see, as is Berlin (especially for the zoo to see the baby polar bear and baby jaguar). Other than that I have no idea where I would like to go. I can fly anywhere pretty cheaply so I’m up for anything. Any suggestions where this adventure should take me?
