hiking at blackforest...

the most beautiful place and i felt as if i were in paradise, the different greens of the trees were juz so beautiful, indicating tat new life begins from now onwards... it was raining the whole day on friday n saturday n i nearly pull out of the hike for the fear of getting sick... it doesn't help when i woke up on sunday morning only to find out tat it was fogging outside, which was quite thick, but i went anyway... the trip was organized by the senior service of my uni and it is open to all international students, the group was really big, there were 30 international students from all over the world n 20 ppl from senior service... this is the first time i went hiking in germany and together wif so many ppl... we took a train and literally pack the whole train up... it was quite interesting to hear so many languages spoken at one time and in a train... ppl juz automatically strike a conversation like it is so normal, unlike in ehem class coughs wif hem germans... haha... and i was even amazed when i met a former malaysian student who works wif the uni branch now... we went like "malaysia!!!" n start talking bullet-train-malaysian-english... we also manage to converse in german wif the other member of senior services, although most of them were kind enough to explain more detailed stuff in english... i learn a lot about plants from them, i learn how to differentciate different fruit tress by the colour of the flowers and also by the shape of the tree bark... since coming to germany, i've grown a passion for plants here, esp since it's spring now n it is juz so inspring to see so many colours lighting the whole place up... we also manage to make friends wif other international students and to be able to understand jokes that they make is simply wonderful... for the first time i can actually join in the joke no matter how lame they are and laugh my head off...

now you might be wondering y this post is all words til now... n u might think that they might be photos posted up real soon... no, u r wrong!!!

because being a smarty pant *as always, i forgot to bring my camera!!!!!!!!!!!! n to make things worse, i even forgot to bring my handphone... seriously i feel like jumping down to every river tat i pass by n freeze myself to death or jump down from every slope tat i climb or knock my head agains all the beautiful trees... haih...
