One Year in Berlin: An Internship

After several weeks of juggling term papers, rugby practices, and even a bit of traveling, I’ve finally seemed to settle back into a somewhat normal rhythm here in Berlin. One major advantage of studying in Europe for a full year (as opposed to one semester) is the enormous amount of free time I have in between terms. For about two months my only academic obligation is to choose my courses for the summer. Otherwise, I can more or less do anything I want until mid-April.

Are you in love with a German? Tell us your story on Heartbeats…

February is a month for celebrating the people we love.   But Valentine’s Day only comes once a year, and we want to celebrate bi-national couples all year long. If you are dating or married to a German, we’d love to share your story on the deutschland.de blog.

Some people say that the language of love is universal. But what happens when two people from different countries fall in love? On Heartbeats, bi-national couples tell their stories.

On Valentine’s Day we introduced two couples. Marc and Derek are a German-American couple who met in the United States and live in Hamburg. Christie and Bernie are a British-German couple who met in London and now live in Wiesbaden.  Each week we’ll introduce two more couples who found bi-national love.
