my exchange year Germany-Bonners ferry

About Me

Hi, my name is Emmi and I am an exchange student from Germany living in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. I go to school in BFHS, home of the Badgers. My host family is a wonderful family that lives in paradise valley and has shown me the best time of my life. Currently I am taking a class on intro to webdesign and thought I would make my first project a comparison of my two homes. To see my comparison, click on one of the countries above or click on the links to the videos and quotes.

My Life In Germany, NĂ¼rtingen

These are some pictures of my hometown, Nuertingen. From top to bottom, left to right : the well in front of the city hall, my high school, the church and our river, the view from the hill where I live and another picture of the church and the old part of the town taken from the river shore.

My New Life In Bonners Ferry, Idaho

These pictures are either taken with my host siblings or the scenery in Bonners or stuff that has to do with school and sports.
