I know it has been awhile since my last post, but I haven’t been traveling as much the past month since I have been in the full swing of classes and internship applications. Since my last post, I went to the Stuttgart Wasen, which is Stuttgart’s version of Oktoberfest, had my first German presentation in my finance class, travelled to Stuttgart again for a shopping day, and visited Heidelberg.
So far, I have applied to 15 internships in Berlin and am hoping to get one soon. Other than that I have pretty much settled in to Reutlingen and am focusing on my classes. This weekend, Giancarlo and I are headed to Madrid to see the city and visit some of the friends we made in Aachen.
I hope you all are well on the other side of the Atlantic! I miss you all very much.
Michelle in front of the Tübinger Tor. There are actually three in ground trampolines I like to go bounce on every once in awhile.
Michelle, Erin, Maggie and Giancarlo: on our way to the Stuttgart Wasen. We took the train from Reutlingen to Stuttgart. We were stuffed in like sardines! I did enjoy seeing everyone in their Lederhosen and Dirndl.
We had the treat of reuniting with our advisor from Elon, Dr. Tiemann.
I went to the narrowest street in the world again during a scavenger hunt through Reutlingen with Campus für Christus.
I got Burger King at the Stuttgart train station. How I miss American food!

Erin and I were riding in the backseat with the top down and cranking the tunes!
My Dutch friend Tommy: we drove on the Autobahn to get to Heidelberg. I kept an eye on the speedometer. We got up to 150km/hr, which is about 90mph so not too crazy, but still exhilarating.
Schloss Heidelberg: one of the most beautiful views I have had since I’ve been here!
Heidelberg sits along the Neckar River.

There were two giant wine barrels in the cellar of the castle. They must of had some pretty wild parties back in the day….
I thought the mini door inside of the big door was pretty comical. I wonder who used this?
Parts of the castle were hit by lightning or damaged during wars and fires.

I lost my heart in Heidelberg (Ich hab’ mein Herz in Heidelberg verloren) was a hit back in the 1920s.
I thought this house was so quaint with the ivy leaves changing colors for fall.
