Exploring San José Solo

This week was a bit slower than others, so I took the opportunity to explore new activities in the city on my own. I happened to come across an art gallery across the street from Costa Rica’s National Museum on TikTok, and I saw that they offer sip and paint sessions on the weekends for ...

Befriending Locals in San José!

We just wrapped up week four out of 12 here in Costa Rica. As I mentioned in my last post, I need to be more money-conscious so I’ve decided to sit out on the weekend excursions for now and spend more time closer to my own neighborhood. Also, since I spend so much time with ...

Jacó, Guanacaste & Limón

Since I lasted posted, I’ve spent the past few weekends traveling far outside of San José to the “must-see” parts of the country. Our first stop was Jacó during our second free weekend, which is a known tourist hot-spot. The sustainability program students collaborated together to get an Airbnb five minutes away from the beach- ...

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 22 Today it day 89 of 90. No residence permits means I’ll be living illegally in Germany starting in 2 days. I really hope nothing it wrong with my documents. And…good news! I won’t be needing a physical residence permit- instead it is a piece of paper that indicates that I have left Germany ...

An Uphill Battle

November 1 There is no class today because it’s All Saints’ Day (Allerheiligen). This public holiday occurs every first day of November in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria (Bayern), North Rhine-Westphalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen), Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz), and Saarland (Saarland). As much as I want to relax, there is still work to do. A few days ago, positions for co-op at Drexel opened up. That ...

Happy Halloween!

October 25 “Remember to bring in a hero or anti-hero to discuss about for next class!” Our professor repeated that at least twice. It didn’t cross my mind until the day before! What are some examples of heroes or anti-heroes? Superman? Batman? Spiderman? Joker? Venom? Someone from the Marvel Universe, that’s what you call them, ...

Injuries and Frankfurt

October 4 Uh-oh, it looks like there is nothing to highlight for this day! October 5 What do you think of when you think of Swabia? (Schwaben) Swabia is located in the southwestern part of Baden-Württemberg, that’s where you’ll find the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) and the Swabian Alb or Jura (Schwäbische Alb)! Swabian German or ...

Döner Kebabs, Pretzels and Chilly Spirits

September 27 “Do you want to get doner?” Carly asks.“Sure, meet you at Star Döner [& Pizza 2] then?” I replied to Carly’s message.“Yep.” Instead of making my own dinner, Carly and I decided to go have some doner (Döner). The doner [kebab] is a known dish from Turkey and usually consists of meat from ...

Stories, Milk, and Bells

September 6 Wake up, wake up, wake up! It’s the first day of class! I begin the day walking to Netto which is stationed conveniently outside my building. After purchasing a few ingredients for a breakfast sandwich and some butter cookies/shortbread (Butterkekse) to enjoy while I work and study! Today’s class is all about myths, ...

Into Wonderland

Yesterday was our first full day out in London. I started the day bright and early walking around South Kensington, and eventually landed at a coffee shop called Guillam coffee house. One thing I’ve been looking forward to in London is the food. The city is full of authentic restaurants, cafes, and pubs. This may ...
