Nick, outbound to Germany

So it's been a little over a month now and it's going absolutely fantastic!

In the last couple of weeks I have made a ton of friends, gone hiking with my host family, been to some of the oldest places around, enjoyed more culture than I expected to in the first four weeks and the list goes on..
It is truly amazing here in Dresden, Germany. The city is big, the people are welcoming and the beer is freshly brewed!  Haha! (I can't say that last part, can I?)

My family is more than understanding with my problems with the language but over the past week or so, everyone has noticed how much better my German has gotten since I first arrived..

It's sometimes hard to comprehend that I am in a different country half way across the world.. there are moments where it hits me like a bat out of hell and I start to tear up.. But then I remember how amazing it feels to sit down with 3 or 4 friends and just talk in German for an hour or two... it is one of the most rewarding feelings I have ever had.

And then I realize, none of this was possible without all the amazing people that have been part of my life.. I just want to say thank you to my family and friends that I know will walk with me through this new part of my life..

So, until my next entry, Tschüss!
