Frances' Journey to Germany

Current Location

Trier Germany

Wilkommen! (Welcome!) Join me on my trip to Trier, Germany! I’ll be teaching English to the students of the Friedrich-Wilhelm Gymnasium, all while exploring this beautiful historic city.


This week I took a trip to a tiny town called Lahnstein. I visited a castle, ate some good food and saw lots of beautiful riverside scenes!


Since this week's journal prompt is "recognizing other perspectives," I wanted to write about how my race affects how I am treated in Germany.

Field Notes

Get to know a class of 6th graders at my school! How do their lives differ from yours?


I love good food! And I couldn't resist sharing pictures of some of my favorite foods I’ve had so far here in Trier! Have you tried any of these delicious dishes before?
