Just passed my 5 year anniversary for living in Germany!
Germany has given me so much.
Firstly, Martin is German! We met in Toronto but I followed him here. 🙂
I also went to grad school in Germany (essentially for free tuition-wise), and then went on to land good jobs in Germany. Soon I’ll launch into a (hopefully) lucrative freelancing career.
I am so grateful. I know I live a very privileged life.
It’s been very up and down for me in Germany. But instead of reflecting on my bumpy ride, I’m going to just appreciate how good I have it here.
There are so many people Europe/Germany bound right now, who don’t have it as easy as I do. After reading some truly heart breaking stories, I’m going to shut up. I have nothing to complain about anymore.
Thank you Germany, for accepting me in and for giving me all this opportunity. Thank you for giving me my husband!
To another fruitful 5 years, when we plan to FIRE!
