Munich, here I come!
Since last summer, a lot has happened. The Fall semester was a very busy one and I had an important task at hand with applying to schools. This process took months of careful preparations and hard work. With all the ongoing business, I had no opportunity to travel over the winter as I had initially intended to, but the hard work may have payed off!
Less than a week ago, I was informed that I am one of the 28 selected candidates for the second round to be admitted to my current dream school - die Hochschule für Fernsehen und Film in Munich. As a result, I am traveling to Germany tomorrow to take the school's admissions exams over the course of the following week.
This news has been absolutely amazing but also very overwhelming on such a short notice. My first reaction (after dancing around like crazy and a round of high fives with friends and family) was to go to the library and rent 6 books as well as some of my favorite German films to brush up on my language skills.
Also, as I'm sure most of you fellow travelers can understand, the tickets are quite expensive when purchased a week ahead of time. I therefore tried everything in my power to find a place to stay at in Munich but this was no mean feat. After asking around among friends, acquaintances, film mentors and even families I babysit for, I decided to shift gears and l started looking online.
Even on the World Wide Web did I have some difficulty finding a place but at last, after sending a plethora of messages to friendly- and trustworthy looking people on Couchsurfing, I have finally found a host in Munich who has kindly offered to let me stay at his place!
This will be my first time couchsurfing, my first time visiting Munich and my first time taking still photography (new passion) in a foreign city. Therefore, it is bound to be an adventurous week and I figured it would be an interestinge experience to cover in my travel blog!
Achtung? Fertig... Los!!
