Coachella Grounds Ferris Wheel

Living a dream ~ Coachella Festival

It still feels like a dream to me, being there and experiencing all the things you’ve only seen on Instagram pictures. Is it overrated? Not a tiny bit. Is it overpriced? Probably. But honestly, I would do it all again because it was one of the best weekends ever, meeting all the people, listening to music and seeing the outfits.

Monthly Update ~ Month 22

My last monthly update, crazy how the time went by. I’m sitting in my room in Germany right now, can you believe it? Even though it was sad to say bye to all my friends and my host family it was a wonderful last month. I got to say bye to my friends at my farewell party, met some great people in New Orleans and visited my friend in Washington ๐Ÿ’•.

From Snow Storm to Sunshine Weather ~ Los Angeles, Palm Springs

California almost feels like a second home to me, I have been there so many times (at least many for me ๐Ÿ˜„) and my first two times in the US were in Los Angeles. To be honest, my favorite city is still New York but in LA I get that kind of home feeling because it’s so close to my second home in Ventura ๐Ÿ’•. (If you didn’t know: I spent a month in Ventura during an exchange with a wonderful host family ๐Ÿ˜Š.) Anyway, this post is going to be about the days before Coachella which I spent in LA and Palm Springs.

Monthly Update ~ Month 20

Ok, first thing: I know I haven’t exactly been active the last month but you can’t believe how busy I have been. I was out a lot and my brother was here to visit me (which was awesome) but that leaves little time to write any new blog posts unfortunately.

And second, I just realized I only have two months left in the US, I have no idea what to think or how to feel. It’s just crazy how everything will be over and I will be home in two months (my flight will actually arrive in Hamburg in exactly two months ๐Ÿ˜„).

Monthly Update ~ Month 19

I can’t believe it’s already time for another monthly update, I’ve been (and I still am) so busy, time is just running away and I have so much to do. But at the same time I really feel like I’m ready for my time as an au pair to end. Don’t worry, I still love it here but sometimes you just have a feeling that you’re ready to move on and with all my university applications going on at the moment I’m so excited to start university in fall ๐Ÿ˜.

Things you donโ€™t know until you get to the bitter cold

It’s finally getting a bit warmer here in Minnesota – or as some people say “warm enough to go out without a jacket” (it’s actually still only a little bit over 0ยบC). But honestly, I never thought I would say this but it really does feel almost warm at only like 2ยบC and that coming from a person who is basically always freezing. Spending two winters here in Minnesota where the average temperature is probably anywhere around -20ยบC for three months straight have definitely taught me quite a bit about real winters.

To the still waters ~ Stillwater, MN

You see that pun kind of thing I did there? ๐Ÿ˜

Anyway, as I told you in my Monthly Update a while ago (feels like years actually ๐Ÿ˜‚), I went to Stillwater for a day trip with my friend and one of her friends from home. It’s a tiny town in the east of Minnesota at the border to Wisconsin but as everyone told me itโ€™s a nice town I thought I should go and visit it – they were definitely not wrong.
