Willkommen means welcome in German! That’s exactly what we were last night in the Austria House. The two Austrian girls were named Kathi and Johannah. They were so sociable and kind with sharing their stories of who they were, and why they are at the Games. Kathi actually came to the Games to work at the Austria House because she won a radio contest, and Johannah was offered a job there.
I believe we made friends for life because of the amount of connections we made and experiences we exchanged. Who knew that I could have so much in common with people who live nowhere near me? Truly incredible!
