For my last trip I wanted to go somewhere different. So Briana and I went to Barcelona, Spain. It just so happened that we went on November 29th and M’lynn and Rachel were going on the 30th. We made arrangements to stay in the same hostel room and to all come back to Bonn on […]

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Being here in Germany on Thanksgiving is kind of hard. They do not celebrate it here and I really miss family. To help the “pain,” the program I am here with gives all the students a Thanksgiving party; with turkey and all. I think I said that AIB has students from Texas […]

Because driving to north Germany went so well; Dominik and I decided to do a road trip to Austria. Do not be so shocked; It is only a 6 hour drive. It is like driving from College Station, Texas, to New Orleans, Louisiana. We rented another car Friday (November 21). We got a station-wagon to […]

I consider myself very reserved, organized, precise, and planed. Yet, I do know that spontaneity is the spice of life. And once in a while it is okay–as they saying goes in Germany, “when that cat is out of the house, the mice dance on the tables.” In other words, I had no homework over the […]

The class arived in Heidelberg (November 4, 2008) at about 1pm after a 4 hour train ride. We walked from the HBF to our hotel, checked in, and freshened up. Heidelberg is known as a University town in Germany (much like College Station in Texas). We came to Heidelberg to walk the Philosophers Walk. On […]

For Halloween the studio decided to have our own party (because Germany does not celebrate Halloween) then go clubbing in Cologne. We all went over to Pam’s host parents house, which graciously agreed to host the party. We all contributed 3€ and Pam went to the store for hotdogs and snacks (it was BYOB). The […]

Saturday, Briana and I planed on going to UN day. When the class visited the UN building, our tour guide told us that UN day was all Saturday near the UN building. Briana and I decided she would come over to the dorms at 4pm (because the dorms are just down the road from the […]
