A few weeks ago,
I met Alex.
And even before really meeting her, I felt like I already knew her,
so, I decided to stay at her house for the weekend.
First, let me just tell ya'll-
Alex is awesome.
There was no awkwardness,
even if we did meet each other over the internet.
It's like we had been friends forever-
minus some details about our past lives.
I had so much fun staying with her,
that I was tempted to prolong our little sleepover.
I decided not to wear out my welcome, however,
since I fully intend on making another visit asap.
So what did we do?
hung out and enjoyed the sunny weather at the schloss (castle)
had a drink or two (or, let's be real, 7 or 8) over the course of the first evening-
and then did it over again the second day.
rode bikes in the dark
attended stuttgarter-fruehlingsfest (post to come)
ate lots of delicious food
basically, had an amazing weekend.
And, Alex isn't the only cool one,
her friends are pretty awesome too.
There was no awkwardness.
But, I have a lot to thank Alex for-
she was the one that planted the seed to be an au pair.
If it was not for her,
I doubt I would be calling Germany my home.

I also learned one other thing over this weekend-
riding a bike while intoxicated is nearly impossible.
I have no idea how I made it home alive.
I did, however, make it back a little bruised and battered by the concrete.
