Germany wears its riches well: elegant big-city charm, small picture-postcard towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a wealth of art and culture and the perennial pleasures of huge tracts of forest, delightful castles and fine wine and beer are all there for the savouring. Deep in the heart of Europe, Germany has had a seminal impact on Continental history. From Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire to Otto von Bismarck's German Reich, Nazism and the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, no other nation has moulded Europe the way Germany has - for better or worse.

I had planned on going to Dresden today. The only thing is I forgot to book my train last night, so now it is magnitudes more expensive. Solution? I’m staying in Berlin another day and booking a train to Prague for tomorrow. It was a nice chill ... Read more >

Last day in Munich

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [15]

We woke up and checked out of our accommodations this morning. Then we went off to the train station to rent a luggage locker. Our ride did not leave until 6:00 so we wanted to enjoy more of the festival. It was much easier to get a spot inside one of ... Read more >

We woke up for some breakfast and headed off towards the festival grounds. At the train station we meet a few more people staying at our campsite and went with them around the festival. It was a little late by the time we arrived (10:00) to get a spot ... Read more >

We had to wake up early and take some trains to the west side of Berlin. Our bus was departing from the central bus station to bring us to Oktoberfest. The ride was pretty awful. Bad traffic made for over a 9 hour bus ride to Munich. Matt and I went ... Read more >

Museums and Parks

I went to some museums today. There is a small island in the rivers of Berlin called Museum Island because it is full of museums (easy to guess). The main one I went to see was the Pergamon Museum. It is set to close for over 5 years starting the end ... Read more >

School on Vacation?

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [16]

Today I woke up and went to class with Matt. He is in a biology master’s program in Berlin and I thought it would be interesting to see differences between US and European universities. They are very different and I prefer American Universities.... Read more >

We woke up in Sungsoo’s apartment with plenty of time for people to make it to class (most of them are all in the same program together).  I went back to Matt’s apartment for a shower and to plan my activities that day. Since his apartment ... Read more >
