I went through my friend’s blog from her year abroad last year (she was the other exchange student at my school, besides myself), and while she only has a few posts, I found this really awesome photo of Esslingen that she took, which I really love because it just shows how pretty it is.
May I introduce myself. My name is Nicole Connolly.
I was born in Esslingen am Neckar to Peter and Charlotte Kühnel. Raised as an only child and spoiled rotten. Loved playing soccer until late at night. Greatest passion were always horses. Have been riding since I was 8. I left Germany when I was 19 to be an AuPair in the US. It was just a one year program but I met this awesome Irish guy that swept me off my feet. We got married shortly after and I have lived and worked in the US ever since. I love it here and can’t imagine myself moving back to Germany. I still do love Germany as well though and I do get to travel back often through my photography. I’m a commercial and editorial photographer with a focus on New England and European destinations & lifestyle.
