Thoughts on Germany From an Italian and Chinese Erasmus Student

Andrea is a law student from Genoa, Italy who’s doing Erasmus at University of Bonn. This weekend he’s visiting me in Heidelberg and I seized this chance to compare our German Erasmus experiences.

With our young minds, we live, observe, and make our naive reflections. We treasure the opportunity of doing Erasmus in Germany, therefore we explore with big eyes and laugh at tiny obstacles. For the first post, off we go with some polemics!

When do Germans drink alcohol?

Anytime is a good time for drinking in Germany. While in Italy, Andrea explained, people only drink when evening begins. Italians don’t consider alcohol a daytime thing.

One Year in Berlin: This Time auf Deutsch

Zeit meines Lebens habe ich gehört, dass meine Heimstadt die tollste, spannendste Stadt auf der Welt sei. Sie ist allerdings die Stadt, die nicht schläft: New York. Bis vor kurzem war ich mit der Aussage einverstanden. Der Verkehr, der Lärm, die hetzenden Fußgänger: Alles weist auf einen bestimmt ruhelosen Ort hin. Ruhelos sicher, aber schlaflos? Ich kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass New York nie zumindest schlummert. Man muss halt ein Wochenende in Berlin verbringen, um „schlaflos“ kennenzulernen.

Free!  Awesome!  Books! (on Berlin!)

Right now we’re giving away a bunch of pretty books to fill your Berlin-obsessed heart.  We’re giving away both 100 Favorites Places: Berlin and Mauerweg: Stories from the Berlin Wall Trail right here.  When you enter, you get to tell us your favorite place in Berlin.  While I have my money on something easy-to-remember like Brandeburg Gate being the most popular, ONLY YOUR VOTE CAN DECIDE.  So get over there already.  So far I’m the only person who voted Kopi (and I don’t even count, I’m just the tester), and that’s just silly.

Where to take your parents in Berlin

Moving to Germany: First Impressions

by Greg Webb

When you imagine going to (and living) in another country, there seems to never be a perfect way that you can capture its essence with your imagination. Considering Germany is a fully developed, 1st-world country, I was naturally under the impression that its infrastructure, population, and overall culture would not vary much from my own country, but seconds after stepping off the plane in Frankfurt Am Main, I realized this could not be further from the truth.

Despite all of the pictures I composed in my head, nothing could truly explain the differences between the United States and Germany. The surreal feeling that smacks you in the face upon arrival is one of the hardest wake up calls you will ever get in your life and although extremely tired and jetlagged, I simply could not get my emotions under control.
