Reflection: The Top 3’s

I just want to start by thanking everyone who made this trip possible! From Pitt Study Abroad to the University of Augsburg, and to Arielle and Dr. Feick, who decided to take the time out of their lives to oversee a bunch of teenagers in international waters. These two weeks were some of the best times of my life and I cannot wait to use what I have learned from Germany in my daily life. Also, thank you to all the other students on the program for making this such a great time. I cannot wait to see you all in the fall! But, I hope I will be able to see all of the German students again one day. With all the beautiful sites, churches, and mountains, Germany is most definitely a place I would like to visit again. Furthermore, instead of doing the traditional thing and go on and on about how great the program is and how I love Germany, I wanted to step outside of the box. So, here is a long list of all my top 3’s from Germany.
