So I am currently living in a small college-type area of Ravensburg known as Weingarten. It literally translates to “Wine Garden.” Cool, no? I haven’t seen any yet but I am keeping an eye out for these gardens. In the meantime, I haven’t really done much exploring, but I wanted to share a few photos with you:
These photos were taken on Sunday when Thorsten was here with me. We took a small stroll in search of whatever was possibly open on Sunday in Germany.
We finally found it!
Then we got food and went back to my apartment. I am living in a four bedroom apartment with two students and an intern from my company. I have the two students (a girl named Dorothea and a young man named Adonis….I’m not kidding – side note: he’s from Syria but spent six years in Ohio and was very excited to have another English speaker in the house). I have yet to meet the intern but I have seen his back while I walked into the bathroom one time. Honestly, I mostly keep to myself. After years of living alone, I definitely enjoy my solitude.
So without further ado here’s my little private space:
It’s not much. The bed is actually one of those Ikea folding couches. I brought my own bedding to protect it from the dog. I also brough my feather pillow from home because I have not had good luck with European pillows. But that’s not the best part:
My room is actually an entry-way converted into a room. But as you can see, they put two layers of blinds so I have privacy but still some light. Also, I have my own personal entry way, which makes taking Abner out nice and quick. Not that my roommates mind. The two who have met Abner like him 😀
Anyway, that’s a little bit about my living situation. I will have more time to explore soon so there will be more photos 😀
