uk-blackpool-title-cover

He finally made it! That was what I thought last Monday evening after Rafael, my former roommate in Chandigarh, arrived at Sheffield bus station. It is now one week since he arrived and we both enjoyed this time a lot. Last Saturday we went to Blackpool, which is probably the most touristic town in UK. It looked a little like cities on the northeastern coast of Spain. Loads of amusement parks and arcades. It was Read more…


The first two weeks in university are over and I really like studying here. Nevertheless, there are a few things that are supposed to be simple, but are anything but. I would even say they are absolutely annoying. For example, submitting assignments. At university in Dresden, one only sends the assignment to the tutor or professor via email and everything is fine. Here however, it is not that easy. Instead it is totally complex and Read more…


Today was the last day before the university will start. I am really curious what I will have face from tomorrow on. How the lectures will be and so on. My schedule is fixed and it is going be interesting – especially on Mondays. I have one Portuguese lesson in between two computer science lessons.

By the end of the first week in Sheffield I can say: the start was good. After some problems, I have found a room. I have wi-fi in my room and we even have digital TV in the living room. The price is ok and it is 20 min from the university. From what I saw of Sheffield until now, it seems to be a good city to live. Two days ago, it was raining Read more…

Only one week after coming back from London, Philip and I went for the next trip. Paris is a really cool city and the title is only related to a really funny coincidence. We did a lot of sightseeing and saw several of the big tourist attractions. Seeing Paris for Read more…

I am back from the trip to London and the Isle of Wight. The Isle of Wight is a lovely island in the south of the UK and who has not been there yet, should definitely visit it one day. It is beautiful, believe me! They even have their own little festival, which is called the Garlic Festival. It was great meeting some of the friends I got to know in India and I enjoyed these days Read more…


Yeah – the reunion is not far away. Wednesday next week Philip, Adriana, British Esther, Nick and I will meet on the Isle of Wight. I am really looking forward to this event, because I am so happy to see all of them again. I seriously missed them. Above all the joy in England, Philip and I will go to Paris to visit Elli, a friend of mine, only one week later. The best is, Read more…
