Reflecting on the GerMANY Memories Made

Hello, for the last time. I sadly will not be starting with a quick intro about how I loved the breakfast at the hotel I had today, as I am back in the United States. I have to say Plus3 was one of the best experiences I have had, and now that I’m not with…

An AustrINCREDIBLE Time in Salzburg (Day 13)

Today we had a particularly early day, but we all didn’t mind as we were so excited to go to Salzburg, Austria!! We were out the door of the hotel by 6:50 am on our way to the train station. We developed a count off system, each of us with a number one through ten,…

King Ludwig Mountained (maintained) the Good Life (Day 12)

When I got up today, it was one of the most excited I had been for one of our day trip visits. Today was the Bavarian breakfast, but PLOT TWIST I still ate breakfast at the hotel. And no, it is not because I love my beloved Nutella waffles so much, but because the Bavarian…

PresentaDONE (Day 11)

Justin, James, Lucas and I ate breakfast early and were out the door of the hotel by 9. Today was the big day, after all of our company visits it was finally time to present what we had learned about our given companies, and the automobile industry. Once we got to the university, we met…

We had an ULMazing Time (Day 10)

Today we went to Ulm, where we met the challenge we had been thinking about since the beginning our trip: climbing the 768 steps of the Ulmer Münster. I started the day with the hotel breakfast, I try to mix it up but since the waffle tastes so good it is hard to move on…

SGL Was a CarTON of Fun (Day 9)

Today after breakfast, we started the day by taking a bus to the SGL Carbon site at Meitingen which is quite close to Augsburg. Once we got there, we started with a presentation by Dr. Tilo Hauke. In comparison to the other presentations, he gave us a more technical background to begin with and then…

A Trip To a Tragic Past (Day 8)

Today I had a waffle with Nutella (I swear I will switch it up tomorrow), a croissant with strawberry jam and yogurt, which was different from usual because it was premixed with fruit and it was not lactose free, but I am a yogurt fanatic so of course I still enjoyed it.   Then on the…

Munchin’ in München (Day 7)

You may be getting bored of the reports that consist of what I had for breakfast but like everyone knows it’s the most important meal of the day. Today I started the day with a classic waffle, a croissant, and some yogurt. I have to say I think I’m in love with the jam in…

Fourthrecia-it was our fourth company (Day 6)

On this fine morning, we had breakfast at the hotel and took the street car to our fourth company, Faurecia. I made a change and tried a croissant with strawberry jelly, which was of course, phenomenal. It was not a long ride, but when we got there it did seem a lot smaller than the…

Never Want to Get Audi (Out) of Germany (Day 5)

Today started with breakfast again, the new thing I tried today was lactose free fruit yogurt and it honestly wasn’t bad at all which surprised me. I also had a waffle again cause I have been loving it, so I decided to include a picture finally. We then got on the bus to Ingolstadt, which…

The Jam Was My Jam (Day 4)

So of course, like most days to come, I started with breakfast at the hotel. I treated myself to a 13 out of 10 waffle with Nutella again. We then headed to Regensburg, but we first had to cross a bridge from where the bus was, to get there. The first thing I noticed was how…

ALPmazing time in Oberammergau (Day 3)

Today we started out the day again with a yummy in my tummy breakfast at the hotel. The new thing I tried at breakfast today was a waffle with Nutella, it was so good I think I am definitely going to have another one tomorrow. We then got on the bus to head to Hirschvogel…

We said FuggerBYE to Pittsburgh (Day 1)

The day started with an exciting arrival after an eight and a half hour flight where I had a chance to sit in between my new buddies, Ravi and Brett. The first thing I noticed after landing was the sheer number of stores that had their logos or names printed in English. We had gotten…
