Can someone please correctly pronounce the name of the town in which I’m staying? The train ride from Wroclaw was, despite arriving an hour late and breaking down for half an hour in the middle of nowhere, surprisingly pleasant. It was relatively empty, so I was able to stretch out and even jump back and […]Read more "A Brief Respite in Wojcieszow"
Where do I begin? How about at the beginning. Wednesday night I was trying to plan my route out of Berlin and into Wroclaw, against my better judgement. I was intending to go to Krakow instead, but since I am meeting a friend after the weekend that lives close to Wroclaw, I decided that I […]Read more "I Am Blogger, Hear Me Rant"
Today is my last day in Berlin – my last day in Germany. I have a blablacar ride here in a few short hours to Wroclaw. I was going to skip Wroclaw and go to Krakow, since during my last trip it was one of my favorite cities, but I plan on meeting up with […]Read more "Neunundneunzig Luftballons"
Well I definitely got my money’s worth out of the all-day transportation pass I bought for 7 Euro. After breakfast at the hostel (which was oddly exactly the same as the breakfast offered at Steffi’s Hostel in Heidelberg), I walked the 2 kilometers or so to the Molecule Man sculpture. It was…intriguing. Then I stopped […]Read more "Another Brick in the Wall, Parts I and II"
When? WHEN? Ich bin hungrig! I spent a ton of time in the hostel commons yesterday. After getting all caught up on posting pictures and updating my blog, I basically sat and read on my Kindle for a few hours. There is really nothing I feel I could have gained from visiting the city again. […]Read more "My German Verb Wheel Came in the Mail! Ich esse, Er isst, Wir essen…"
Well I made it to Heidelberg! I got here fairly late on the night of the 16th, so I checked in and just walked around the block before the sun went down. One of my roommates was a German student that was taking the entrance exam at the university to start his master’s program for […]Read more "Schloss Heidelberg"
Well, today is my last day in Frieburg. After breakfast I walked Hanna to the train station. We ate lunch at a Subway (score!) then she boarded her train for Mannheim around noon. I returned to the hostel, since my bus doesn’t leave until 1730. After about an hour of research I decided on a […]Read more "My Universe in a Nutshell"
After my post yesterday afternoon I ventured back into downtown Frieburg. I wandered around the many vendor stalls surrounding the church, and finally settled on a bratwurst for lunch. Local food always seems to be the most delicious, and usually the cheapest. I couldn’t read the descriptions, though, so I just pointed to what I […]Read more "Geburtstag in Deutschland"
Updating my blog over the next few days is going to be a bit difficult. The hostel at which I am staying does not offer wifi. Sure, it has internet connected to its computers down in the lobby, but these keyboards are confusing as hell. First of all, instead of CTRL, it has STRG – […]Read more "Ich Bin Ein Freiburger"
Does anyone get the movie quote? I thought it was quite clever. I slept in a bit today; I’m still a bit jet-lagged. Around 1100 I ventured back to the Albert Cuyp Marketplace. Here is the website and a video of it being organized in the morning. I had to buy a new outlet converter […]Read more "I Love the Smell of French Toast in the Morning. It Smells Like…Victory"
