#Come2Germany Social Media Ambassador

I'm back from my #Come2Germany Trip!!

The week spent in Germany felt surreal. I experienced my first international solo trip and had the pleasure of working with the wonderful people from the German National Tourist Office.

What a dream!

As most of you may know, I competed in an online voting contest to become a Social Media Brand Ambassador for the German National Tourist Office. It was a month long, extremely competitive contest that had me losing sleep every night!

But in the end, it was all worth it!

I won!!

For one week, I explored the western region of Germany.

The primary focus of my trip consisted of fashion, wine and spa experiences within the cities of Düsseldorf, Assmannshausen, Wiesbaden, Rüdesheim, and Baden-Baden.

I traveled to Germany once before, back in 2011,  but only visited the city of Berlin- which is located in the north. I was beyond excited to get the chance to sightsee another region of this beautiful country.

If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, you probably saw a few pictures I posted already. I'll be sure to publish full blog posts describing each city within the next few days, so make sure to keep a lookout for those.

It still doesn't seem real that I was given this amazing opportunity. I remember being overwhelmed with so many different emotions before boarding the plane. I felt happiness, nervousness, but most of all, gratitude.

There are no words to express how thankful I am for everyone who voted. To have so many people care enough to invest their time and energy on me is truly a testament on what an incredible support system I have. And something I'll never forget.

Thank you so much for believing in me. I couldn't have accomplished this without you.

Stay tuned for all my fun German adventures!
