Hi, I’m Emma and I’m currently studying for my undergraduate degree in Economics and German at Cardiff University. I am about to go on my year abroad to Germany and thought it would be good to document all the trials and tribulations, the good times and the bad times and all the general times in between. It’s going to be an amazing, difficult and interesting year and it’s going to be particularly intriguing for an Economics student due to all the turmoil going on with the Euro. I cannot imagine a better time to be going. So, if you fancy joining me on the rollercoaster ride that is bound to be my year abroad, have a read. I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
