Germany - A-Z blogging challenge
Germany is on my mind at the moment - one of my closest friends has been accepted on a PhD programme in Bamberg, a small city in Bavaria.
I'm simultaneously delighted for her and sorry to see her go - but an excuse to visit Germany is always a good thing! Germany is a lovely country. It has beautiful cities, friendly people, world-class scenery and excellent food (and beer, but I don't drink beer). Their language is delightfully logical and expressive.
Whenever I try to speak my (schoolgirl) German in Germany, I am rewarded with a cheerful smile and an instant switch to English. I love how so many people are bilingual and how they're trying to make me feel welcome, but seriously, guys - how will I ever improve? :)
