Thank You Augsburg

Day 13 – Augsburg to Austria

May 17th, 2019 Sad to say it but today is the last day of Plus3 Germany. After two amazing weeks, many city visits, and all the memories we would end our trip with a visit to Salzburg, Austria We were out the door of the hotel by 6:50 am on our way to the train…

Day 12 – New Swan Stone Castle

May 16th, 2019 Day 12 marks the last day that all 20 of us would spend the day together until departure on Saturday! It’s sad to think that the trip is so close to over and we’d be flying home so soon! 🙁 Today we had multiple destinations to visit and many things to see….

Day 11- Presentation Day

May 14th, 2019 Presentation day is finally here! After all the preparation it was finally time to get the presentations over with! Our group scheduled to meet at 10 am at the university to practice.

Day 9 – Carbon Fiber Fun!

May 13th, 2019 Final site visit today! Can’t believe the final presentations are two days away and our trip is almost over 🙁 After having two casual days, I was NOT excited to dress business casual again. SGL wasn’t far luckily and after this we just had group project work! SGL is a carbon fiber…

Day 10 – Stairway to Heaven is in Ulm

Day 8 – Dreary Day in Dachau

May 12th, 2019 Today marks the start of week two. Yesterday was a fun day, but the mood for today was going to be much different while it is spent at Dachau, one of the most infamous and largest labor camps during the Holocaust in World War II. It was raining and cold out when…

Day 7 – Munich I Will be Back!

May 11th, 2019 Munich here we come! I was so excited to visit Munich to see what it was really like. It’s the largest city in Bavaria so I knew it wouldn’t be like Augsburg. We had planned to take the train and the leave hotel around 9. We ran a few minutes behind so…

Day 6 – Faurecia, Foraseea, Foryashia?

May 10th, 2019 Today is the final company visit of the week and marking the half way point of our trip. Still can’t believe all the things we’ve seen in such a short amount of time. This site was still located in Augsburg so we only had a short tram ride to get there. We…

Day 4: Hey-gensburg Regensburg

May 8th, 2018 For breakfast today: the same as every other day! A croissant, cheese and jam! Today I realized something as well about the coffee in the hotel. Coffee here is much lighter here, and not as strong with a little more foam on top, but if you order American coffee it comes normally….

Day 3 – OberammaWOW

May 7th, 2019 Hello blog, today was day 3 of Plus 3 in Germany, but its felt like I’ve been here for much longer. We’ve done so much in just 3 days I can’t believe it! Today was our first site visit to Hirschvogel. We left hotel Ibis at 8 am, and it was about…

Day 1: We Made It!

Waking up Saturday morning, it was cloudy and humid, but it didn’t matter because bright and early at 10 o’clock we departed for Pittsburgh International Airport. We shared a bus with the transfer students that were attending Plus3 Ireland. Our ride was about 35 minutes, but because of all the excitement it seemed like nothing!…
