Caption: Me standing with snow, ice, and a piece of the Berlin Wall. This section is called the East Side Gallery and is a free space for graffiti artists to express themselves. This picture embodies everything about my Berlin experience. It has snow, which is perfect because it snowed the entire time we were there. It shows my enthusiasm. It also showcases the graffiti art that made me fall in love with the city.
Victoria Takes Berlin: An Overview
My spring break trip to Berlin was my second self-designed Honors Experience. Because I knew the ropes, this time I felt more prepared going into the trip than with Munich. I was able to master the city in a shorter amount of time and truly immerse myself. Although I did not have as much time to practice speaking, I was excited to see that when ordering food, asking for directions, and describing surrounds to my travel companions, my German came right back to me. This proved that I would be able to study abroad again for a longer period of time, which is a dream of mine! Check out my proposal and reflection to read more about my trip to Berlin.
