Reflection Post

My two months in Berlin was a period in which I experienced a lot of individual growth. To start, I learned a lot from my internship. I have built upon my technical skills, especially in excel, and have gained a greater confidence in contributing within a work environment. Often times my tasks required a lot…

Final Week

For my final week I completed the rest of the business plans for the site visits for my company. We visited both Dresden and a site in Berlin in the last week. My coworkers took me out for a good-bye dinner in Berlin at a really nice restaurant. It was a bitter sweet moment to…

One Week Left!

Second to last week done in Berlin! I cannot believe we only have one more. This week I did not travel anywhere and decided to enjoy more of Berlin. Me and a couple friends made our way to the DDR Museum which is essentially an exhibition that depicts life of former East Berlin under the…

Week 7

This week was a busier week for me. This past weekend I traveled to Budapest which was really exciting to see.

This week was the busiest weeks I’ve had so far in Germany. For my internship I traveled to the south of Germany to the town of Stuttgart. This trip consisted of five property site visits for my company, all of which needed to be completed in two  days. These visits are basically designed so that…

Google Translate Is My Best Friend

This week was probably my most eventful week so far. With only a 3-day work week, my friends and I traveled through the south of France for the long weekend. We started our 4 days in Toulouse where we stayed in a small hotel near the old city. Also known as “the pink city”, Toulouse…

Old and New

This week we finally made it 203 meters off the ground to the observation deck of the TV tower just as the sun was setting. It was incredible to see the mix between modern and old architecture that makes up Berlin and how far the buildings span into the horizon. Even after being here for…
