GERMANY | Mon, 22 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [17]

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

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

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 >

To Munich!

GERMANY | Fri, 19 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [23]

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 >

Sunny in Berlin

GERMANY | Thu, 18 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [18]

It was a really nice day out, so I decided to hang out in the park. Matt introduced me to a tasty drink called Fritz-Kola the other day. It is a combination of cola, lemonade and coffee in an old style soda bottle. I popped into a Spätkauf (corner ... Read more >

Museums and Parks

GERMANY | Wed, 17 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [18]

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?

GERMANY | Tue, 16 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [22]

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 >

Not So Basic Division

GERMANY | Mon, 15 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [23]

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 >

Today Matt and I woke up and went off to get some food and wonder around a bit.  He called up a friend (Melanie) and we explored around Alexanderplatz until we got hungry. Then it was time for some Wok to Walk restaurant for some noodles. Throughout ... Read more >

To Berlin!

GERMANY | Sat, 13 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [20]

I woke up and caught a S-bahn to the train station this morning.  My ICE train to bring me from Hamburg to Berlin was running a little behind, but it was not much of a problem. To be more precise, only half of the train was late. Since it is a more ... Read more >

Exploring Hamburg

GERMANY | Fri, 12 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [23]

Today I explored the city. I think I walked almost a complete circle around downtown Hamburg. I started near the harbor and worked my way towards the city. There is a retired submarine in the Hamburg harbor that is now a historical museum piece. I only ... Read more >

Simon!

GERMANY | Thu, 11 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [27]

I had breakfast at the hostel with the German guys from my room. Then I went around town and found a Vodafone store to buy a new SIM card (3 charges a lot in Germany). The guys at the store were helpful. The only thing that was a little confusing was ... Read more >

To Hamburg!

GERMANY | Wed, 10 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [24]

I bummed around in the hostel for a lot of the morning. My flight was in the afternoon and checkout of the hostel was 10:00am. I did not have quite enough time to explore the city anymore. I finished one of my books and then took the bullet train to ... Read more >

Europe, 2013

FRANCE | Sun, 24 Aug 2014 | By jazwalker | Views [46]

My second international trip came in my last year of high school. I'd been studying modern history for the past two years and had been looking forward to doing so since I was young. One day, a friend of mine who was in my history class asked why our ... Read more >

Pleasantly Not Surprised

BELGIUM | Wed, 20 Aug 2014 | By jazzanomadica | Views [186]

My first ever train ride in Europe confirmed the pre-conceived ideas I had developed of what train travel here would be like. It was… pleasant . I was a little sad to be leaving the tragically hip city of Berlin so soon. I had grown a deep ... Read more >

A Positive Blunder In History

GERMANY | Tue, 19 Aug 2014 | By jazzanomadica | Views [335] | Comments [1]

Crying for the "Bad Guy"

GERMANY | Tue, 19 Aug 2014 | By rmckinley | Views [381]

My tour guide made me cry today. Not an uncontrollable sob, like when I said goodbye to my fiancé at the airport for four more months apart, but a heart-wrenching painful stream of tears that I could not fight back. I was thankful for sunglasses ... Read more >

Führerbunker

GERMANY | Mon, 18 Aug 2014 | By aeileenr | Views [84]

I stand in the middle of a small, modest apartment parking lot, surrounded by plain, brick apartment buildings. A willow tree looms to my right and a small, red and blue children's slide sits to my left, currently unused.  “Four meters ... Read more >

Berlin: Then & Now

GERMANY | Sun, 17 Aug 2014 | By aeileenr | Views [82]

In Berlin, where a serious-looking older woman in a suit sits next to a punk on the U-bahn, there seems to be a juxtaposition between the old Berlin and the new Berlin. The older woman who remembers “East” and “West” Germany;... Read more >
