I am extremely glad that I had the experience of traveling abroad while also learning. This study abroad trip was extremely intense in the sense that we did a lot of physical activity such as walking and touring places everyday. I am extremely grateful for learning and absorbing everything while in the presence of amazing landmarks, historical sites, and landscapes. It felt really weird to be back in the United States as soon as the plane landed. I just felt like I was in a total new place again. I got used to being and living in Germany for that month and it was weird to step back into my “normal” life. I find myself comparing my experiences in the US to my experience while I was in Germany.. honestly I liked it better in Germany. It was easy to adjust back to my regular everyday routine though, because I started working 2 days after I got back. I think that this trip and experiencing a new culture was able to open my eyes to a new lifestyle that I found very easy to adopt. Everything seemed much more sustainable and their trains actually WORKED GREAT! and were rarely ever late. I do the simplicity of traveling around in Europe and the openness in the culture and that’s one big thing that I miss about Germany.
