Guten tag! My name is Jewel, and my husband and I are looking to move to Germany in the next five years. We decided to give it five years so we could make all the plans necessary and make sure we knew exactly what we're getting into.
So, a little about me. As I said, my name is Jewel and I currrently live in North Carolina, United states. I am currently a freelance writer, but am planning to return to school to get a Bachelor's in English with a minor in Journalism. In Germany, I hope to teach English as a foreign language and write on the side.
I enjoy reading and writing, especially poetry and fantasy stories. I also enjoy camping, hiking, and listening to the birds. Nature is a beautiful thing, and I love to be out in it (so long as there's no snow on the ground!).
I have been married since July 2016 (though we've been together since 2008). My husband's name is Mike, and he works as a factory worker. He and I are both legally blind, though his vision is better than mine.
I am learning German from a friend who lives in a little town in Schwig-hollstein. She is my best friend and is part of the reason I chose Hamburg, so I can be close enough to her to go visit onthe weekends. I have learned a lot from her, but I know I need to learn a lot more before I'm ready to live in Germany.
I have so many questions, I don't know where to start, so I'll leave them for later. I would really like to make friends with people in Hamburg and get to know about the city and all it has to offer. Friendship with people in other places in Germany are fine, too.
Thank you for reading this, and I look forward to getting to know all of you!
