Münster 1

I’m glad to say that the first week at Kapito Sprachschule has been a success! I arrived in Münster on July 3rd.  It was the first time I had traveled abroad by myself and it went surprisingly well. I live with a lady named Rita Schulte. She is a “Krankenschwester” (nurse) at a local hospital….

Danielle- 1

After a two week tour of southern Germany (with day trips to both Austria and Switzerland) with my family, I have finally arrived in Münster! Despite the rainy weather these first two days, I can already tell we are going to have an amazing time here this month. To get us familiar with the city,…

Münster Blog One

When I first learned that I would be spending an entire month in Germany this summer I was more than excited, but as time grew close to my departure I became nervous.

Outside my small window, occasional blackbirds and pigeons wing over the dusky rooftops of central Münster.

For months I have waited not-so-patiently for my day of departure, and yet when the moment arrived to stroll away into the…

Munster Blog post #1

If my time here is as good as the gelato i’ve been eating (every day), then i’m in for a real treat. Münster was not what I was expecting, but what ever is? At times it’s quite warm, and the next day it will be raining all day. Aside from the occasional dull weather, Munster…

Verano Espanol-Beane

My absolute favorite thing that I did during this entire trip was probably the Candelario trip. At first I was a bit hesitant but once we arrived I knew it would be a perfect weekend away from the busy life of the city where I could just relax and just life. I took so many…

My favorite place over the past six weeks  that I visited was Barcelona. It was very beautiful and it is on the beach. It was a fun city with a lot to do. We were able to visit La Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell. I loved the atmosphere of Barcelona and the people were very…
