Alex's Journey to Germany

Current Location

Landau Germany

Hi, I'm Alex, and I'm jetting off to Germany to teach English this fall! Join me as I see the country and play around with board games in the classroom. Let's have an adventure together!


I took a trip this weekend to Germany's oldest city, Trier. Established nearly 2400 years ago and conquered later by the Romans, Trier is a gorgeous city with a colorful history.


Some minor cultural differences can sometimes be difficult to overcome if you are not ready for them.

Field Notes

My hike near my host city brought me into contact with some interesting new plants and fungi, and I just missed a few quick-moving animals in the brush.
