Last week, I got the super special opportunity to travel to Munich with my boyfriend, Jun. He flew in from New York and we got to visit the beautiful historic city for 5 days. Here are some photos from the quick trip!
I'm so glad I was able to make it to Munich and share the experience with Jun. We ate so much good food, went to a ton of museums, and we got to visit the Dachau concentration camp memorial. I had to take four trains from Tübingen, which took me 3.5 hours. At one point, I accidentally got on the wrong car and was sitting in first class, so I pretended to be asleep every time they came around to check tickets. It was the most nerve-racking hour of my life.
Next week Friday, I have an orientation with the school of business and social sciences where I'll get to tour the campus and meet other international students in the same program (here, it's called a faculty) though I won't register for classes until the following week. I've already met some really great people through the international student Facebook page, except most of them are masters students or post-grad researchers in science and medicine. It's really nice to be able to speak English with them, since I'm not proficient in conversational German.
I'm looking forward to the weekend, but I need to remember to stock up on food before Sunday since everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) is closed for the entirety of Sunday. It was a bit of a shock my first Sunday here when I couldn't even go out to buy food. I'll see you next week! Bis bald!
