The Frankfurt School visits Luxembourg

The new semester started with a bang with a three day trip to Luxembourg. Because we have a large number of new students in the second semester, the administration thought it would be a good idea to have some sort of bonding event for everyone before classes officially start. What better way to do that than…

Birthday in Italy

Life got really busy the last couple of week so I apologize for being late with this post. At the moment I am two weeks behind on my blogs because the weekend before last I was on a plane and last weekend I was moving to a new flat. Here I am, doing exactly what…

Berlin, Kassel, & Home Again

Sorry this post is a week late. I was super tired after my trip and then I started work which basically consists of staring at a computer for 10 hours a day. The last thing I wanted to do when I cam home was stare at a screen to write a post. Museums After taking…

Lazy Week in Berlin

After a hectic semester immediately followed by running around the country, holidays, and adventure, it was very nice to take a breather in Berlin, staying at my former host mother, Vera’s house. I got there on New Years Eve (which I wrote a separate post about) and after that crazy night, I’ve mostly been taking…

New Years in Berlin!

On New Years Eve I hopped on a train at an ungodly hour to go to the second largest New Years celebrations in Europe. They say that the party in the 2 km stretch between the Brandenburger Tor and Victory Column hosted over a million people last year and the firework and laser shows the city hosts…

Adventures in Bremen

In case you didn’t see from my last couple of posts, I’m in Bremen! I caught an insanely early train on Christmas Eve and spent Christmas with my friend Ivana and her family. I spent the full week after Christmas at their house, had tons of fun, and tried lots of new food. Keep scrolling for details!…

A Traditional German Christmas in Bremen

Between working the majority of my winter break and how expensive plane tickets are, I knew a long time ago that I would be spending the holidays and my birthday away from family. As many of you may know from my last post, I was invited to stay with my friend Ivana and her family for…

Stunning Festival of Lights in Berlin

What a fun and busy week. This is what I signed up for when I moved to Europe. Botanical Gardens I originally thought that this week would be very boring so I decided to spend a day in the Frankfurt Palmengarten. It was very nice and I got many beautiful photos. It’s rather small compared…

All Settled in to Offenbach

Well, I made it! I am officially in Frankfurt, Germany. Now that I am here I think the tone of my blog will be changing to be much more conversational. I already have so many impressions and cultural differences that I want to share with everyone but I think that I will save those for later…

Road Trip to Grandma’s House

Since my last post I have made a lot of progress towards my quest to Deutschland; here is my latest update on life. My orders at Amazon, Jet.com and eBay came in all at once so I thought that I would share my deals with you all. (Pictured below from left to right.) I replaced my old pair of…
