I am Melissa and to answer the first question that might come to your mind: No, I'm not adopted by my parents. So why is this blog named "The adoptive sister"?
A very important part of my life is the "Adopt a student program" of the University of applied sciences in Bremen. I've been a member of that program since it exists and that’s quite long. The program is about "adopting" a foreign student to help him getting along in Germany, because sometimes it can be really hard to live in a foreign country. Most of the German people, who "adopt" a student are old enough to be their parents, like my aunt (I'm doing this program together with her). But when the program started I was maybe 10 years old, so it would be weird to call me an adoptive parent. That's why I am the adoptive sister of a lot students all over the world. And I am so so so happy to have such a big family.
I am 22 years old and live in Germany, but I wouldn't say that I'm typical German. I grew up in a small village, near to Bremen (the city of the town musicians) and I am quite sure that in this village there are more cows than people. As you might guess, this is not good place to live and work for a young adult. Right now I'm living in Hamburg, where I work for an Ambulance. This is not the job for my entire life, but a good way to earn money for my greatest passion; traveling!
I really love to learn about countries and cultures that are so different from the German culture. That's why I try to travel every year.
As I am blogging about places I visited, activities I did and things I bought, this blog somehow contains advertisement. I'd like you to know that I don't get paid for this, in any other case I will inform you about paid advertisement above the blog post.
Da ich über Orte, die ich besichtigt, Aktivitäten und Schnäppchen oder Souvenirs blogge enthählt dieser Blog irgendwie auch Werbung. Ich möchte, dass du weißt, dass ich nicht dafür bezahlt werde. Wenn doch, informiere ich dich darüber über dem Blogpost.
