30th anniversary of this relationship
July 25, 2021 22:48

My name is Carolina Suárez Garcés. I’m from Argentina and went to Germany as an exchange student in 1989/90. My host family was the Berger Family in Buxtehude and after more than 30 years we are still in touch! With my host sister, Ulrike, we have developed a deep bond that we have enriched through the years. We celebrated our 30th anniversary of this relationship doing the “Camino de Santiago” (Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.) together in 2019. I’m so happy of having done it together and honor our very special relationship sharing such a significant and empowering experience!
