Oh my, everyone has been so active on the blog, I apologize for my lack of posting. #abroadprobz
I have been doing a good bit traveling and sadly my computer doesn’t always accompany me. I think I have to be the luckiest person in the world. My first semester at University Bremen ended at the beginning of February and since then, I have been traveling and exploring all that Europe has to offer. I have off until April 22 (seriously that is two and a half months of traveling) and the my semester runs until July 26 (so no summer, so I guess there is that trade off). But since my break started I have:
- Traveled with a few of my German friends to Rauris, Austria and learned how to Ski in the Austrian Alps for a week. I swear, I didn’t break anything, I couldn’t believe it either.
- Visited some long time friends Cologne, Germany and attended a Childish Gambino Concert.
- My mom came over to visit and I went to Brussels, Belgium, Paris and Rennes in France. Where I saw the Eiffel Tower, the Catacombs, the European Parliament and Mont St. Michael.
- Bussed myself to Berlin, Germany to meet up with some fellow Dickinsonians.
- Met up with my Aunt in Frankfurt, Germany for a few days, I even got to eat Chipotle.
- Traveled to Vienna, Austria for 5 days with the Dickinson in Bremen Program for a group excursion.
- And now I am currently in the Munich, Germany, showing my Aunt around my favorite Germany city.
- Next month, I am again traveling and I have the opportunity to go to Poland and England, each for 6 days. Needless to stay, I am having the time of my life.
While all of this travel is amazing, I do certainly have my nostalgic Dickinson moments. I miss my friends, my club team, and the Dickinson faculty (special shout out to the admissions staff) and professors. I especially miss my favorite place on campus, Morgan Field. I know the weather has been less than pleasant back in Carlisle but (don’t hate me for this) I have been enjoying 60-70 degree days, which include sun bathing, a bit of sun burn and even the freckles are peeking through. It makes me miss how beautiful Morgan Field is once spring time hits. Everything is in bloom, the trees are green and lush and everyone is out on Morgan field studying, tanning or throwing frisbee. How college is this sounding right now? But seriously, it’s true. I have to take a bus to the closest park in Bremen to get anything like it. Nothing beats have such a beautiful campus right at your door step.
*Disclaimer, I stole this picture from the Dickinson website. I haven’t been on campus all year, so sadly I have no pictures of my own. However, this is actually how beautiful it is during the spring.
