I lived in Berlin Germany for 9 weeks and it changed my life. I didn't know how American I was until I was in Berlin. I then realized that I needed to let go and just have the experience, instead of comparing it to the US, its not better, just different.
Now, I love to travel and meet new people. I read lots of self-help books and you will see lots of them in my house--read away, just leave them there.
