    I'm also curious as to the 75 Euros. Is she taking a taxi? For that cost she could save up the money and get a "beater" car for about $300 at the Lemon lot on post. Then she could drive herself there.

    She can also get involved with the Volunteer Organization on post. there she would be able to meet people and start finding some friends. MWR often sets up trips that she could go on. They also have information about happenings on base and around the community of Idar-Oberstein. Tell her to go find the craft shops (scrapbooking, jewelry, ceramics etc). The classes are fun and another opportunity to make friends. If she wants to take some college classes there are lots of opportunities to do that as well. there are also classes given for parents to be (New Parent Support Program) that she could join in with to meet others who are expecting and form some friendships.

    Yes the lifestyle is a bit different but she can make it an adventure *smile*.

    Let us know if she has something she wants to know about in detail. My dd has been in Germany for 3 years now. I can email her and she can give me info since she has been in Grafenwöhr/Vilseck and Baumholder. She is busy as a full-time student over there so it might take a couple days for and answer but I'd be happy to help if I can. TAKEN AT NISQUALLY WILDLIFE PRESERVE
