I don’t really know where I’m going with this post as it is a question I have been turning over in my head since we got back from our trip to the States last week. It may end up a bit more wandering than usual. We had a great trip back, Christmas with the family… Read More Home
Ich heiße Nicole. Ich komme aus den USA. There you have it my first week of German classes under my belt and I can now say my name, where I’m from, where I live, and what languages I speak.

Beach bums in training… I haven’t posted in a few months but now I can happily announce we are moving to Sydney!
