I’ve been to germany, and met so many wonderful people there. But what really inspired me was how double sided the language can be. On one hand it is certainly harsh, fast, and quite intense to listen to. But I remember one night in Freiburg, I was with my couchsurfing host, her roommate pulled out a guitar and began to sing. She sung of how she was going to travel the world leaving her love behind in the bubble that he so chose to stay in. Her voice was so soft that I couldn’t believe that she wasn’t speaking english. That was the moment where all my expectations of german where shattered. This language was much more than just some powerful verbs, this language was beautiful.
