Just a girl from Dublin, Ireland, living in southern Germany with my German husband blogging about my experiences.

The right to be heard #MicroblogMonday
As an Irish woman living in Germany I was allowed vote in the recent elections. The EU one was open to all European citizens and the local ones were open to all residents of the relevant constituency. I wasn't going to miss the opportunity and I was delighted to vote for the first time here and encourage others to do the same.
One good thing about this political climate is that people have been getting more interested in politics and realising how much their vote matters. To be honest I didn't know all that much about the different parties in Germany and what they all represent so I spent some time reading up on their goals until I felt happy with my choice.
Climate change and saving the environment is particularly important to me and this is one way I felt I can make a difference.
