Back to my German Roots

This was it. This was the part of the trip I had been anticipating for months! I was finally going back to Germany. I hadn’t been there in almost 1o years, and here I was getting to go to Berlin and Munich! On May 19th, we packed our bags and headed to the airport early for our flight to Berlin. Finally, after getting 22 people’s bags checked and hours of waiting, we finally were boarded and ready to go! Berlin, from the...

Bama Takes Ireland

At this point in the trip, days start to blur together. Life on a study abroad trip is a whirlwind, but one that you never want to end. We had a total of ten days in Dublin, Ireland and we jam packed as much of it in there as we could. On day two, we had to have a class day at our host college, University College Dublin (Yes, we actually learn a lot on these trips). We talked about Excel, Tableau, R and our case competition that was...

Last year, I went to Ireland and Turkey...

Time for Some Good Turkish Tomfoolery!

May 15th, 2015:   Goodbye Dublin! We all woke up early since we had to be in the lobby at 7:45. I am a huge procrastinator when it comes to packing so I did not get a whole lot of sleep at all. Luckily, we all made it on the bus and got to the airport. This is where it all got a little crazy. I had already over-packed for the trip as it was, so I definitely did not have enough room for all of the souvenirs that I had accumulated...

Taking Ireland by Storm

May 9th, 2015   Today was our first day trip! It was such a fun day, but it came with a price. We had to be in the lobby at 6 in the morning. From the lobby, we went to the Heuston train station. We had breakfast in the station and I shared my scone with a pigeon and had some of the best chai tea. Then we boarded the train for Kilkenny at 7:15 AM. It was about an hour and a half trip and I really enjoyed seeing all of the Irish...
