and we watched the sunrise on our walk home.

[august 23. 2011. Kiel, Germany]

a few weekends ago i spent my saturday evening
exploring the city with my new friends.

we laughed so much my stomach hurt
we danced so much my shoe fell apart.

we met less than a month ago
i already feel like i've known them
for years on end.

later when we were at a
british-pop-music pub
this song 

came on-
i squeeled
and then 
sang my heart out. 

my new friends?
they kindly listened to me sing

and even though a few people
gawked at the american girl
singing along with the music 
at the top of her lungs-

these friends-
they laughed,
tried to sing along.

when the song was over
they clapped
we all high-fived.

and that's when i knew:
these friends are going to be around for a long time.
Pin It Now!


  1. oh anna that's so awesome! i'm a firm believer that a person can get through anything with a good support group. but it's even more special when you have a good support group with which you can have a blast in a foreign country! :)

  2. thats so wonderful anna really happy. and yey for britishness!! xxxxxxx

  3. Hey - long time reader (over a year now), first time commenter. I love your blog, and I'm loving reading about all your adventures!

    There is nothing better than good friends =) Sounds like you're having a wonderful time!


  4. How did you make those friends? That's amazing! I'm thinking of making an abroad gap year next year (I'm from Austria), but my biggest fear is not finding friends :/

  5. That's awesome and awesome attracts awesome so somehow I'm not surprised you found these cool people.
    Singing loudly in pubs is one of my favourite things :)

  6. I added your icon to my blog, because I love what you do ^^ Hope you don't mind! x

  7. Anyone who listens to your singing (not you...specifically) is a good person. No matter if you're great or terrible, an audience that understands your passion for a song and its message is a beautiful thing.

    I do, however, feel sorry for my audiences. Terrible. That's the side of the fence I fall on. :)


Oh, please do say hello!
