Road Trip to Papenburg!

Originally, I planned to explore the town and possibly go to the lab with Lennard and visit his facilities but in the end I decided to catch up on some sleep.  It wasn't very exciting but I suppose I needed it.  There will be plenty of time to visit the rest of Göttingen when I come back on Sunday.  Today Lennard and I will be taking a three hour road trip up to Papenburg, where…

Going to Göttingen

I left Düsseldorf today for Göttingen to visit a friend of mine from private school that I hadn't seen in over ten years!  Before I left for the train station, I went to the Deustche Post to mail off some post cards but the office was closed!  There was an automated machine outside that sold stamps specifically for postcards which is what I bought.  I just hope that I bought enough postage for each card…

Revisited the Old Town of Düsseldorf

It was absolutely beautiful, 13°C with the sun shining, and not a cloud in the sky.  I decided to take the rest of the afternoon to go out for a walk back to the old town and take some photos of the Goethe Museum, the Jägerhof, as well as some other things along the Rhine.  I walked by several bakeries and the delicious smell of pretzels enticed me inside.  I ended up just buying two…

What a Lazy Sunday!

After going coming home from the club at around 0330, I thought it would be a good idea to take it easy today.  I didn't really do much except for drink lots of coffee.  I did make lunch and improvised a bit because there was no curry powder for the naan like pancake that I was thinking of making.  So instead I used ground coriander and some chilli powder into the flower.  It tasted alright…

Went Shopping in Düsseldorf

Yesterday, when I got into Düsseldorf, it was so nice to be greeted at the airport by a friend!  Especially when I haven't seen Keith since 2003!  I can't believe how long it has been so of course we spent most of the time just catching up.  Even though it wasn't too late, I just had to go to bed.  I think it was one of the best sleeps I've ever had!  I just completely…

My adventure to Düsseldorf started yesterday at about eight o'clock at night from Manchester Piccadilly train station.  Joe and I walked from his flat to the train station hoping to catch the earlier train but unfortunately we missed it which was no big deal since there was another one right afterwards.  Thankfully it was a direct train to Euston Station in London and would arrive about 2230.  I knew that I had about an hour…

I can't believe that I have been in Manchester for four days already!  I seems like I barely had enough time to see the city and now I'm getting ready to leave again.  This next travel day will be an interesting one since I decided not to book any accommodations on my way back to London Heathrow and my flight is in the morning at 10AM.  I'm not quite sure what exactly my plan will…

Wandered Around Manchester City Centre

After the horrendously long travel day on Monday, I spent most of Tuesday just relaxing and trying to get caught up on my blogging as well as some other work so I didn't really explore Manchester all that much.  I did however go to the shopping centre that is just across the train tracks and it really reminded me of home!  There are stores there like TJ Max (but its called TK Max) and other…

Finally Arrived in the UK...

I got up to leave Zürich at six in the morning so that I had plenty of time to take the tram and the train to get to the airport and when I arrived at the train station I missed the train by just a few seconds!  I watched it depart just as I got to the platform and while I was disappointed I knew that I had plenty of time and wouldn't miss my…

Pit Stop in Zürich?

Before I left Geneva for Zürich, Claire, Elizabeth, Sabrina, and I had a huge Sunday brunch!  There was sweet crêpes filled with bananas and Nutella, then savoury crêpes with roasted potatoes, and scrambled eggs.  It was absolutely a feast where afterwards the only think everyone wanted to do was take a nap.  I have to admit, that is exactly what I did.  I must have passed out on the couch for a couple hours and…
