Last year in the early fall of 2016, I had the opportunity to visit Germany as part of a summer internship. Specifically, to attend a two-week course in Potsdam, located just outside of Berlin. The trip was last-minute, so I didn’t have much time to plan (this is becoming a trend lately), but I think I made the most of my time there. I tried to explore Potsdam every afternoon, I spent a couple of days in Berlin when I arrived to Germany and before I left, and I spent my middle weekend in Hamburg. Hamburg was chosen because I knew I wanted to explore a different city and the southern part of Germany seemed to be too much of a hassle. I would love to go back to see the south and Bavaria one day though! This section is divided into three parts, one for each city. Check in over the next few weeks as they become available!
