Hello Munich!

Our day started out by exploring the St. Jakobs’ Church, a Lutheran church built between the 14th and 15th century.  The inside of the church was beautiful. The altar at the front of the church folded out into a scene suitable for the Christmas season, while the outside of the folds were more suitable for […]

Welcome to Ireland !

This morning we got an early start to the day by checking out of our hotel at 4:15 am. Once we got to the airport we went through security and eventually boarded the plane and we were all ready to be on our way to Ireland! Unfortunately, we experienced a delay due to a couple […]

The Medival Rothenburg

Today we left the wonderful city of Berlin and headed for the historical town of Rothenburg. On the way we stopped in Nürnberg for lunch and hung around there for a couple of hours. We climbed to the top of the town to the fortress and got to see all of Nürnberg. It was a […]


After leaving Berlin this morning in a tiny bus, we have arrived in the medieval city of Rothenburg. As we were entering the city, you could see the wall surrounding the city by our hotel.

They pretty much had every exotic animal you could think of, from elephants to polar bears and many species from various countries. Another group […]

Free Day in Berlin

Yesterday was our final full day in Berlin. Some groups visited the Potsdam Palace, while others went shopping at KaDeWe. Others went to the Berlin Zoo. The zoo was located in the heart of Berlin and was much bigger than either of the zoos in Minnesota. There were two major differences I noticed: the fences […]

First Free day in London

Today was our first full free day in London to go out and explore the city. Many groups of students bought tickets to see the Tottenham Spurs vs. Leicester City soccer game. It was a great experience to see how Europeans watch soccer because soccer fans are very different than any other fans that you […]

The mixture of holding tight to bush culture and the yearning for urbanization worked seamlessly together. Yet the preconceptions we held […]
