On the road

A semester of Lisbon (incl. To-do list Portugal)

Until soon, Germany – Hello Portugal

Soon it says „Goodbye Germany“ for me, because I'm leaving the country. In 1 1/2 I'll take my semester abroad weeks in Lisbon.


The semester abroad is in my field of study (amazingly) no obligation. I voluntarily decided, Since I am of the opinion, one learns a language best spot. Also, you have also the possibility to get to know other cultures. And perhaps other fallback cultures! I'm looking forward, Lisbon's bookstores to crawl back books ;)
I am housed in a 3 WG for girls. The kitchen is very small and „functional“ be. I hope, I'm going there can bake continue with much improvisation and you here on muffins & further can provide with delicious recipes and reports!

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.
