Hello Germany!

As I am starting this blog on my second week here in Germany. let me fill you in on a few things that you might have missed.

Firstly I took a direct flight straight here into Frankfurt Main Airport. A 9 hour flight is something that really pushed my limits. Being the first time I have ever flown, I was quite nervous to be boarding the plane. Luckily the guy next to me was a frequent flier and helped to calm me down!

Having a window seat was a great first experience when flying. Looking out the window while taking off aboard my first flight ever is something I will not forget. While cruising above the clouds is an amazing experience, it quickly gets boring when you have 9 hours to sit. The plane was however full of good movies to watch and I found Iron Man 3 helped to pass the time.

My second major experience happened almost immediately upon arriving in my new home of Wurzburg. Unknown to me I had picked an excellent day to come to the town as they were celebrating Karnival! From my experience it seems like a mixture of Halloween and a large parade. With the city bustling with excitement and party goers walking the streets I took one look at my new dorm and quickly decided to hit the town.
However after a 9 hour flight and having not slept in what seemed like forever I called it an early day and left the parade early. From what the local Germans have told me the parade can last as long as 4 hours!

I am hoping that with this blog I will be able to share some of my experiences. While the above is only a small bit of experience so far, for now it will have to do. I am also sure that my blogging so far has not been very good. I am hoping to get better at this with each post. I will post as often as I can, although so far my Wurzburg experience has been a hectic and busy one. For now I will leave you with a picture of the town.
