Guten Tag! Since it’s now couple weeks left on my exchange period here in Ulm, it would be nice to sum up a little this stay. Have to say that Ulm has been a great exchange place for me and has offered pretty much the things I could have expected.
Ulm is nice, small big town in southern Germany, located between München and Stuttgart. What I mean for small is that you can walk basically everywhere, and where you don’t want to walk you can use busses. By big I mean that there is everything you need. And what is cool, travelling to different places is so easy because its location and good public transportation.
I have enjoyed a bit of travelling during my stay. I have travelled to different places in Germany but also to other countries. You know when you are in middle of Europe, it’s pretty easy and great to travel.
Weather here has surprised me totally. I didn’t expect it to be this nice the whole spring. Mostly sunny and pretty warm, in Finnish standards. So enjoying the park with friends or running by the Donau have been just wonderful.
And yes, maybe sometimes had a couple of beers just because of the nice weather. This whole culture of beer here is a bit different. Small or big festivals, biergardens and on and on. But what could be nicer in warm weather. Studying at school, not.
The school here is okey and located nicely maybe 500m from my apartment on top of the hill, so it doesn’t take too much time to walk there. Profs are nice and talk quite good English. It has been a great experiment to study in English and see how subjects are taught in here. From the school side everything has been organized quite well. Program was already designed for us so we didn’t have to worry about it. There has been also lots of gatherings and different kind of events organized which is great. I have met and spent time with awesome exchange friends from all over the world.
Now I just have one and half weeks until I will fly back home, but still have all the exams coming on last week. All this will soon be just a great memories and wonderful experiments with nice people.
