You’ve found my blog! This is the place where I’ll post pictures, stories and other tidbits from my trip to Germany. A little background information: I am traveling to Germany through the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange program. CBYX is a scholarship program that allows high-school students to study abroad in Germany for one year, free of charge. I will be leaving the United States in August and heading to Rodenberg, a small town in the northwest of Germany. Here’s a map: Rodenberg isn’t on it, but the town is just a few miles southwest of Hannover, in the state of Niedersachsen.
While living in Germany, I will be staying with a host family and attending a local high school (while learning to speak German, of course – at the moment all I know how to say is gesundheit!). I’m also hoping to travel a lot and see as much as I can. I’ll be updating this site a few times a month – please follow along to see what I’m up too. You can subscribe to my blog using the button in the sidebar or at the bottom of the page, and my posts will come right to your inbox! Thanks for checking out MiaGoesAWOL – there should be some interesting stuff ahead!
