Back in the Land of the Free (wifi- and water)

Imagine the relief you feel when you think your phone is in one pocket, realize it’s  “missing”, and then find it in your other pocket. Now multiply that times 500. THAT was the feeling I felt upon stepping off of my airplane in The US. It was a feeling of familiarity and comfort that I didn’t even realize I had been missing. I didn’t realize that for the past month I had been dreading spontaneous conversations because I was afraid...

Studying at DTU

Studying abroad in Copenhagen has been a blast so far! And although the unit operations lab course I am taking here is fairly difficult and very fast paced, I have still been able to explore Copenhagen. The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is actually located in a suburb north of Copenhagen called Lyngby. During my time here, I have gotten to know the town and the campus well. While some aspects are the same, a lot of DTU is very...

While Abroad in England

When I first arrived to Oxford, exhausted from traveling and full of anticipation, the city was alot different than I had imagined! I was expecting it to be a lot smaller and less populated.

Loving Everything About Berlin!

Hi again!   When I first arrived in my host country, my first impression was that it looked fairly similar to America and other European cities that I had been to. Obviously, all of the signs were in German, but I was relieved to see just how many of the employees at the airport spoke English. When I first arrived, I was a bit nervous and was eager to find my group so that I would feel more comfortable. However, once I found...

While Abroad in Berlin, Prague, and Budapest

So far my study abroad in Berlin has been an amazing experience and has given me so much more than I could have ever anticipated.  From my previous post, I imagine I sounded like a nervous wreck telling myself that I wasn’t going to be alone in this adventure and reassuring myself that everything would work out okay.  Luckily, this was exactly the case for me and I’ve been able to meet new friends that have helped dampen...
