European Escapades: Day 7

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

~Albert Einstein


Day 7 was enjoyable! Today we had an early start, and we went to Grob. Grob was excellent, and the guy who gave us the tour was hilarious. He kept cracking jokes which were super helpful because many of us were exhausted. The remarks helped us stay engaged and pay attention to all the information he gave us. Grob was another company I was very impressed by as their work environment looked pretty relaxed, and everyone was so friendly. I was surprised by the amount of money Grob invests into training its employees. In most companies, you may have one or two machines for employees to practice on, but Grob had over 5! Also, Grob had water without gas! The only other company that had water without gas was BMW. I have had to drink bubbly water constantly, so I don’t get dehydrated.

Additionally, the guy who gave the tour genuinely loved his job and coworkers! He told us entertaining stories that have occurred in the workplace and was not afraid to say to us about different mistakes he has made throughout his career at Grob. It was refreshing to hear some of the mistakes that he has made and what he has learned from them, as I feel like most people try to maintain this unrealistic image of perfection. The guy that gave the Grob tour was highly personable and someone that I would be extremely grateful to work under. For lunch, we ate at the cafeteria in Grob. I ended up getting this fried apple donut cake with a creamy pudding.

It was perfect and something I had never tried before. After the tour at Grob, we went to the University of Augsburg, where we were given two presentations. I enjoyed the BMW presentation on automated cars, and it was evident that the guy that gave the presentation was highly passionate about the implementation of self-driving vehicles. For dinner, Semira and I got Indian food. I ended up ordering chicken butter masala and paneer kulcha. Semira got malai kofta, and once we finished dinner, we returned to Sorrento’s to get ice cream again! After that, I headed back to the hotel and relaxed before bed. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! Until Next Time!

Ice Cream with Semira!
