Bringing Hawaii, USA to Cottbus, Germany

Enjoy the journey and be able to look back without feeling lost where you are.” is a personal philosophy of mine. As my time in Cottbus comes closer to the end, I find myself already looking back and re-living such incredible memories.

My Year of Luck

By Jeremy Connor - “Your luck’s gotta run out sometime” – a sentence that would fit a cheesy cartoon villain perfectly and one that I’ve said about my situation in Germany more than once this year.
