On this page, I share experiences from my time in Eastern Europe and other exciting stories. It is a mixture of public diary and a blog about Eastern Europe and its people. Do not take things too seriously here since this is just a private project.
Since my exchange semester in St. Petersburg in 2012, I was several times in Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union. It is a region that simply fascinates me. In every street, you can feel at the same time the legacies of Socialism and the influence of local culture.
From October 2015 to August 2016, I was a European Volunteer in Dilijan, Armenia. That was a great experience for me! I met a lot of new people and worked with very motivated children in my clubs.
Especially, there is one thing I really like when travelling different countries and meeting new people: discovering new music! When I used to live only in Germany, most time I listened to American, British or German mainstream pop or rock music. I do this still today. But as I met many people, specially from Eastern European countries, I got to know many kinds of new music from this regions. Here I will show you some of my favourite songs from different countries.
