Summer with ExxonMobil

posted in Daisy Chen

Hello, again! You may remember me from my extensive blogs of my European travels this past spring semester abroad in Germany. It’s been a while since I’ve returned back to the beautiful USA, but it surely hasn’t been a dull few summer months. A few days after landing back in the US, I went back […]

On Thursday May 6, Candice, Mike and I packed up for our last weekend excursion (before the start of finals) to Salzburg, Austria & London! Our flight left at around 9PM Thursday night, and flying RyanAir, we had to have an inconvenient layover for the night in the London-Stansted Airport, before flying into Austria. Landing […]

What Have I Been Doing, Besides Traveling?!

posted in Daisy Chen

So I’ve come to realize that the only posts I’ve been writing have been about my weekend excursions for the past several months. I thought I’d update all my friends & family on my life OUTSIDE of traveling – because yes, I still am a student studying at an international university in Bremen. Let’s see… […]

Vamos a Barcelona!

posted in Daisy Chen

After the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull Iceland Volcano on April 15, for about 10 days we were scurrying around trying to figure out if our flight to Barcelona was going to be canceled due to air traffic control. All flights in Europe, stretching from the northern United Kingdom all the way down south to Malta, were […]

“Goodbye, Lenin”

posted in Daisy Chen

My only class on Mondays (General Biotechnology) was cancelled for today because my professor had been away on a business meeting in the U.S. and due to the recent Iceland Volcanic Eruption and flight disruptions, she was not able to make it back in time for class. This class is also cancelled for tomorrow! Unfortunately, […]

Paceville & Valletta, Malta [spring break pt3]

posted in Daisy Chen

After traveling to Munich, Pisa, and Florence, we were off to our final destination for spring break: MALTA! Malta is such an exotic place that I was particularly excited to visit. When I had been researching for possible destinations to travel to over the course of the semester, I was shocked to see such a […]

München, Germany [spring break pt1]

posted in Daisy Chen

It’s been quite a while since my last blog post, but that’s because for the past 10 days, I’ve been on spring break in Europe! (Since I am studying abroad, it just makes life a little bit easier to travel to other European countries, even on a student budget!) After all my midterms were said […]

They are both from Lafayette and are also engineering majors who are studying abroad in a Gonzaga-run program in Firenze, Italy. So they were expected to arrive to Hamburg (which is only an hour and 20 minutes […]
