Modern day Berlin

USA | Tuesday, 22 Jun 2010 | Views [153]

Tues 22 June 2010 I´m now in the final stop on this European tour: Berlin! This city has a more modern day feel to it, and the people are really nice. One big difference is that I know someone here from a friend, so that has helped out tremendously.... Read more >

Paris and Rome, oh my!

USA | Monday, 21 Jun 2010 | Views [146]

Mon 21 June I was off the grid for these past two days because I had difficulty finding internet cafes. But I found a good one here in Rome, where I'm waiting for my bus ride to the Rome-Ciampano airport for my flight to Berlin. I think traveling ... Read more >

It's drizzling in Paris...

USA | Saturday, 19 Jun 2010 | Views [126]

Made it to Paris last night and stayed at a youth hostel for the first time. It wasn't too crowded like I was expecting. I met one person from New York; he was moving on to Denmark next. It's interesting meeting all these world travelers. I can't get ... Read more >

This week has been focused on the reason why I´m in Europe in the first place--the International Planetary Probe Workshop. I chaired my session today, and it went well. Why is it that I always seem to be the youngest presenter/chair person at these things? ... Read more >

USA | Saturday, 12 Jun 2010 | Views [142]

Sat 12 June 2010 I made it to Barcelona safely, even though my flight was delayed by two hours in New York because of heavy air traffic. Ah, the Spanish accent! It´s interesting contrasting how the locals speak the language with how I speak it. I haven´t ... Read more >
