guest post- Alyx (Germany)

Hey Everyone!
Today I have Alyx from Everyday is a New Adventure guest posting on this little blog of mine.
She's an American, on a Fullbright Scholarship, living with her Hubby in Germany, 
She's pretty awesome, 
and by pretty, I mean really.

Hola! I mean... Guten Tag, readers of Lost and Found.

My name is Alyx and I blog over at Every Day is a New Adventure.  You might be wondering why I whipped out the German greeting. It's because I'm currently living in a small town in Germany.





I thought it would be fun if I shared a list of pros and cons of life abroad. So without further ado, I bring you The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - Germany Style
Let's start this thing off on a positive note, why don't we? 


The Good. 
1. Schnitzel. Bratwurst. Bratkartoffeln. Cheese. Bakeries. Okay, let's be real here, people. My belly needs food, and those Germans know how to fill it up with lots of deliciousness. My arteries might start to hate me (as will my favorite skinny jeans), but I say, "While in Germany, eat as the Germans do (or 20 times more, because it's just that amazing)."

2. Spaghetti Eis. Yeah, it's food, but it's so good it deserves its own category. 

3. Having the world at your fingertips. I love to travel. It's like crack to me (except I don't think I'll die from it). I love having the option of just driving/flying/training (just made that a word) to another country on a whim. 

4. The language. Dude. I know German sounds evil and mean and awful and crazy and Nazi-like, but I think it's a beautiful language. I know, I'm a freak. Maybe it's just all the time and energy that I've put into learning how to speak it. 

5. Having a crapload of free time to spend with my hubby. This job really doesn't require a lot of time. At all. I have seriously gotten to spend more time with my husband in the past 6 months than I had the entire year before that. I'm not even kidding. 


The Bad. 
1. Being po. Fo' shizzle. We're so po, we can't even afford the "o-r." This Fulbright shin-dig only pays 800 EUR a month. Our apartment is 465 EUR a month. Do the math, yo. It's a good thing we are semi-responsible adults have figured out how to live on garlic pasta and water (totally kidding, we eat other food, too - see above). 

2. Home Sickness. Yeah, sometimes I miss having family and friends around. If sometimes is about 5 times a week. Oh, you know what else I miss? Cupcakes, donuts, and sausage, egg, and cheese mcmuffins from McDonald's (trust me, the video below is worth clicking "play"). 





3. No car. Sometimes the lazy bums that drive the trains decide to go on strike. This results in being stranded, without a ride, without food, and without a cell phone in the middle of nowhere. Other times, it's -5 degrees fahrenheit outside while I'm walking 1.5 miles from the train station to my school, and I curse in my mind while my face is falling off and wish I had my car. 

4. Clear doors. Ummm. Our apartment has glass doors. Yes, even the bathroom. Don't worry, we always make our guests feel super awkward  welcome. 

5. Tiny beds. My husband is 6'7" and I'm 6'1". At home in America, you better believe we have a king size bed. Here, on the other hand, we have a bed that is slightly smaller than a double. Sometimes we kick each other in the face. 


The Ugly
1. Nothing. I love Germany. It has my heart, and even though I live in a tiny, boring town with nothing to do, I can't think of anything ugly about this place. Oh, wait... I'm in Germany, and I'm making this ugly face. 
So there you have it - The Good, The bad, and The Ugly of Germany.

Thank you, Alyx!
I can't wait to meet up with you in GERMANY!
Blogger meet-up part II?
