The final Farewell

I can’t believe that my year abroad is over. I’m taking the plane back to Germany in a couple of hours – so I’ll be in my other home tomorrow for the first time since August 12th 2013.

I couldn’t have asked for more.
You turned into my second home, made me experience incredible stories that will fade into amazing memories and you gave me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world; people that turned into friends – friends that turned into family. Thank you so much!

USA – this is not a goodbye, it’s a „see you soon“!


In August, my journey started with a song – a song that became an anthem for this year.
And even though I’m not sure, if I will ever be able to hear this song again since it’s connected to so many memories from this year abroad, in my opinion, this journey has to end with the following quote:

„So wake me up when it’s all over. When I’m wiser and I’m older.“

With love,




Meine Eltern heute wieder zu sehen, war vermutlich eines der besten Gefühle meines Lebens. Dennoch – dass meine Zeit hier am Juniata zu Ende geht, ist einfach unglaublich traurig.
