After being in Germany, the trip enlarges my world a lot. The United States and Germany are similar yet they are so different; it is really interesting to understand that the world is small, but it is so diverse that contains varied cultures and tradition. For example, people in Germany have so relied on bicycles that they even have bike lanes on the pedestrians walks, unlike here, we take it as a hobby, they take biking as a real transportation method.
Moreover, they promote environmental protection a lot, so many of their public transportation and housings do not provide air-conditioners. At first, it was not easy to adopt, but the temperature in Germany at night is much lower than the temperature during the day, thus as time went by, it was actually nice to enjoy the natural wind. Also, they encourage naturally drying the clothes, so in that month, we had to get used to sun-drying the clothes instead of relying on technology. It was very fun to experience another culture, especially when I know what I am getting used to is going to help the Earth.
I really enjoy this journey, and I am thankful for the financial help of SEBS scholarship; it enriched my college life to be more without financial worries and had opened my eyes to know how big this world is. It was really fun to study abroad, and I encourage any students to try this opportunity out.
