“What ever has happened to the Germany of my childhood? I have such happy and poetic memories of my early years at Darmstadt and the good friends I had there. But on my later visits, Germany seemed to me a changed country - a country I did not know and had never known." - Empress Alexandra Feodorovna

"I detest my Motherland from head to toe, but when foreigners agree with me on this I feel very offended"
Oh! Where in Russia did you go? :3
I can’t figure out how to reblog from your page! Haha
In high school I went to Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Orel.
In college I studied abroad in Yaroslavl. While there I visited Kaliningrad, Smolensk, and Moscow and St Petersburg again.
Oh wow! Are you planning on going back there again sometime soon?
I sure hope to! I didn’t get the Fulbright twice, and now I have a serious job. I’m hoping to find a Master’s program or something to bring me back.
SOOO cool that’s exactly what I wanna do when I go to Uni :) my school just went in April
I originally planned to study Psychology, but taking a Russian class, and feeling like one in a million studying Psychology, and I decided to study Russian. Absolutely pleased with my decision.
