Away We Go


Posts on the Visual Basic have been a little slow lately due to a wave of commissions and due to the fact that I am packing up to study abroad in Germany for a semester. This is the first time I have been out of the United States, other than Canada.

I'm not sure what to expect on this trip. I feel like I'm leaving for my freshman year of college all over again. Not sure how to feel. And positive this will be a life changing experience. I leave home with a heavy heart, full of worry and doubt.

But I look to the future with hopes for something new and and a sense of clarity. So I hope all of you bloggers out there stay tuned for all of my adventures. Today Texas, tomorrow Germany!


  1. How exciting! I hope you have a great time Rach!

  2. Rachel! Good luck with your travels, you are going to have an amazing time overseas...my roommate/best friend studied in London last summer and fell in love! Sending good vibes your way!!

  3. Wow, good for you! I'm sure it's going to be an amazing experience!

    I studied in France when I was younger and it was one of the greatest experience of my life :)


  4. So jealous! Have fun in Germany. When I went it was only for a short while but in my opinion it's a fantastic country. And take the opportunity to travel around Europe while you're there - everything's so close!

  5. hope you'll still be blogging while in germany! have fun!!


  6. I studied abroad in May all around Europe, and we were in Germany for a couple of days. We learned some introductory German phrases, but when I got there, almost everyone spoke English! And oddly, I found a lot of Vietnamese restaurants too. Good luck!
