I haven’t talked about this on the blog yet. But you read the title right: I’m going to Germany!
I’ve never been out of the continental U.S. [nope, not even to Mexico or Canada!], so this will definitely be a new adventure for me.
Like most great adventures, the opportunity for the trip kinda came out of nowhere. At the beginning of 2015, one of my undergraduate instructors invited some other alumni and me to attend a study abroad program in Germany this summer. So, I’m going to an IT security seminar at a university in Deggendorf, Germany. On the days in which we’re not required to be at the seminar, I’ll have time to myself. My instructor has scheduled some touristy activities for us to do, and then I’ll find some of my own adventures on the other days.
I’m flying from Chicago to Dublin to Munich, and I’ll be in and around Munich for a few weeks.
That’s all I want to share for now; I need to finish packing and organizing blog posts! I am trying to schedule some blog posts ahead of time so that my regular schedule doesn’t get too thrown off. In the meantime, I’m getting super anxious about my first international trip! I’m certain that it will be amazing, but I am definitely nervous.
You’ll be seeing regularly scheduled posts from me, plus a few updates on the trip every now and then. I’m going to do my best to take a lot of awesome photos while I’m in Germany.
Here’s to my first adventure abroad! Prost! 😀
