Only 4 more days until I am home for Christmas!!!
This weekend I visited my good friend Alex Göldner and her family in Botzersreuth, which is about a 5 hour train ride from Reutlingen and close to the Czech border. Alex and I met last year at Elon because she is in the same dual-degree program as me, but she started in Germany and is finishing at Elon. Alex came home for Christmas so I was excited when she invited me to her house for three days. Her family fed me delicious German food, took me to a Middle Ages Christmas Market, and showed me the town of Weiden. We also ate at a typical Bavarian Gasthof so I tried some traditional food like Knödeln. It was so wonderful spending time with Alex again and getting to know her lovely family.
Another exciting update from me is that I accepted an internship offer!! I will be working in the business development team at Modomoto, which is an online clothing shop for men. The basic concept is that men who hate shopping can easily order outfits picked out by the Modomoto stylists. You can check out their website here: https://www.modomoto.de/. Modomoto is located in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. Matt will be in the Mitte district for his study abroad program so we will only be about 30 min away from each other by U-Bahn.
