TEN | Home, Sweet Home, Again

29.07.2016 Here we are: 12 Manson Place, Kensington London. After checking in at our 24 hours reception desk, the Metrogate, we keyed in to our new home. We learned that there’s twelve of us living together in 12 Manson. I’m pretty excited about the mix: four of us are coming from Berlin and the other ...

NINE | Red Dresses and Chocolate Waffles

We lucked out. For our dual city program, we had a gap between our last day in Berlin and our first day in London. Translation: that meant we had six free days. We intended to use it. 29.07.2016 In the past six days, my friend and I have seen swirling red dresses and consumed an ...

EIGHT | Auf Wiedersehen

22.07.2016 I’m in a minor state of denial that my time in Berlin is running down to hours. As you read this, I’m sure you’ve experienced something similar. So, I’ll be brief.

It’s a whisper that says, “I’m here. I’m actually here.” Over the weekend, the whisper ...

SIX | Money Matters

13.07.2016 I’m not going to lie to you. Studying abroad is expensive (for the average student). From committing to flight tickets to purchasing a transport pass, you’re going to drop money. And this doesn’t include your tuition bill back at your home university! Knowing this, I made peace with myself the day accepted my program. ...

FIVE | Free Time, Me Time

Sunday, 10.7.2016 Group adventures are a lot fun. You get to meet people, joke around, and experience every moment together. You feel a part of something and in this case, I feel like I’m part of a close-nit family thousands of miles away from home. Family Photo – Smile! With all its benefits, group outings ...

FOUR | Berlin, A City Like No Other

Friday, 1.7.2016 FOMO does exist. At least for me, the fear of missing out led to many discoveries this week. But let’s take a few steps back. When I first arrived, I was convinced that I was going to have a hard time living in Berlin. I felt nothing towards the graffiti-covered streets and cold, ...
