Lessons I learned

When I was a very young woman, I started to develop my own values of sensibility and discipline. What I learned is that I would never compromise myself on someone else’s terms, which made my life a little bit harder to navigate.

But I always believed that when you have a good foundation you won`t stray too far from your ideal.

My Grandmother used to say :

When you are feeling discomfort and are far away from home, which means it’s time to make a home visit.

But luckily for me, I feel right at home in Nuremberg.

Living in Nuremberg for me is quite exciting; I get to learn a new language, meet new people, travel around the country, and see something new. I have the most wonderful husband and family. Interestingly, I feel like I was always living here.

The Nuremberg I fell in love with!

People always say to me, you are from a big city.

Why Nuremberg?

My answer was always the same, you can't help who you fall in love with.

For me it's pretty amazing when you find the love of your life, “my husband” from halfway around the world. And he tells me every day how much he loves me and how grateful he is that I am here with him.

Nuremberg for me is home. Walking around in the city and hearing people calling my name and waving tells me I am home.

Wisdom for modern life: by Daisaku Ikeda.

Nichiren explains that to know oneself is to know all things in the universe. When you change, your environment changes, too. When your inner resolve changes, everything is transformed. This principle is summed up by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe`s maxim, “Nothing outside that's not within.”

Enjoying  NUREMBERG:

My greatest joy of living in Nuremberg with my husband is that it is a metropolitan city with five hundred thousand inhabitants and not crowded.

Nuremberg is an open society that welcomes people from all walks of life. Germany has a liberal-democratic constitution. Nuremberg is the city of human rights.

Nuremberg lies on the Pegnitz river and has stood since the rule of the Holy Roman Empire.

Nuremberg is the second-largest Bavarian city and the fourteenth largest municipality in Germany. This beautiful medieval city is full of hidden wonders and vast historical memoirs, underground bunkers, brewers, old castles, bridges, and churches just to name a few.

Sometimes I have to pinch myself:

Living a few feet away from the Imperial Castle I have to admit “pretty darn cool”, my husband calls me Princess from the day we met, so I claim the castle as our own,” haha”.

Nuremberg the airport is pretty close to us. We have easy access to travel around Europe by plane, train, or car which is pretty awesome. Weekends we can just decide to take a short trip, jump in your car or hop on a plane or train and you could be in another country in a few hours eg; Prague, Czech Republic, Alsace, France. One hour flight to Paris. If we just want to stay in Germany we could go to Munich, Berlin, Frankfurt, Cologne, Hamburg on a train or drive in a few hours.
