Let me introduce myself!

Hi I'm Alex! I'm an American living in Germany for the past ten years. I came here to study abroad and ended up hanging out here a while longer! Geez how time flies by... Does that make me old? Or is 30 just the new 21? Anyways I developed a taste for travel, exploring, and adventuring. You can check out my blog (link on my profile) to read more of my travel stories and see my photos from around Europe. I'm always on some sort of extraordinary journey, either physically, mentally, or emotionally, trying to learn as much as I can about this diverse world of ours. Let's get to know each other and strike up a conversation or two. Bis zum nächsten mal!

AH - I have just seen your photo, showing that you are a lady Alex rather than a gentleman Alex! My apologies!

Welcome! I have a cousin named Alex who lives in Germany, but I don't think you can be him on account of him not being American! Let's hope that MyLot turns out to be to your liking. Do have a good look around - read plenty, comment when you feel that you have something to say, and open a few discussions!

So you have the travel bug, what fun. I lost mine when I turned 60, now I'm just happy I've got a home and don't have to go to work anymore. Oh wow, how did you come to live in Germany? Oh, did I mention I'm nosy?

@rebelann I'm glad you're all travelled out! That's the way it should be. I came here to study abroad and got married afterwards. Now here I am :)

Hello and welcome. I find 30 to be very young, since I am over 60 and my "babies" are around 40. We are a diverse lot here and that is one of the things I love about being here.
