Living in a Small Town in Germany

by Katie Wellman / Aug 20, 2012 / 0 comments

We live on the edge of a small farm town in Bavaria, Germany. I am the second oldest among us four children. Farmland goes for miles around us in seemingly never-ending blankets of crops.


Many people have planted flowers in their gardens or put out flower boxes in their windows. A donkey brays at the nearby rescue farm for animals. Children laugh at the park just down the street. Tractors rumble by going out to the fields to either till, plant, or manure the crops.


This is where I have lived for the last six and a half years. This is my home.
