  • This Week In Pictures

    This week I’m in Rome, Italy enjoying la dolce vita, or the good life. : ) Here are a few photos from the past few days…. Cappuccinos are a must-try in Rome. Italians make some of the best, and my fave is when they sprinkle chocolate on the top…. Back in Germany, I almost never […]

  • This Week in Pictures

      Here’s a few photos from this week in Freiburg! A quirky thing I noticed yesterday – you can buy batteries individually here. At home, I normally only buy batteries in huge packages of 20 or more. Soccer Football is a huge deal here. This street-performer was keeping it fancy and entertaining with his tricks…. […]

They always have fresh fruits and vegetables…. And lots of fresh flowers…. But my favorite part is the myriad of wurst stands! Germany is home to […]

  • Exploring the Black Forest, part I

    Last Sunday… My friend and I had the chance to go for a short hike through Schwarzwald (the Black Forest) from Titisee to Hinterzarten. Titisee is a small village about 45 minutes away from Freiburg by train, famous for its huuuge lake which gets frozen solid in the dead of winter. Before we started our hike, […]

      Here’s a few photos from this week! Around Freiburg…. And one of my favorite things about an average week — gelato! Inside Mensa Drei, home of some great currywurst + intense hot sauces, and a fave among our study abroad group: Sunset on the countryside around Schauinsland after our field trip…. And lastly, a […]

  • Scenes from Berlin

      We’ve been working in a couple of my classes on reflections, essays, and projects from the Berlin trip. Berlin is a hard city to describe…. every time I thought I had gotten an idea of the vibe of the city, I encountered some totally different aspect of it. So here are three quick scenes, […]

  • Berlin + Prague, part I

    It’s been a busy week in Freiburg! Classes started, and I was sick earlier in the week. I’m feeling a lot better today though, and ready to post more updates! For Berlin and Prague, we broke up into two groups of about 30. I was in Group B for this trip, which focuses on economics […]
