How to survive Christmas without your family (and away from home)

Hi everyone,

since Christmas is near and I remember quite clearly how it was to spend my first Christmas without my family two years ago, I wanted to collect some tips for all the people out there who are currently on exchange or away from their families for other reasons.

  1. Celebrate anyways: I know the temptation to just skip the holidays it definitely there. Don’t do it, it will feel wrong as well. Instead, find ways to make it a happier time for yourself.

Hi everyone,
this is a (late) article for the September Linkup over at Kiki’s Blog (this month together with Dave and Beka from SunshinetotheSquareInch.com). The prompt was to blog about our hometowns and I decided to take a little bit of a different spin on it and make it into a travel post. Also, Heidelberg is not exactly my hometown, but at this point I am not really comfortable with talking about the little village I was raised in (you would basically know my address then). However, I spend most of my life in the area around Heidelberg, studied there, and I tend to refer to it as my hometown. So here are ten things you shouldn’t miss when you’re visiting this beautiful city. Enjoy!
