Who needs Pisa?

German Adventures - Suurhusen

Hey guys! Hope all is well for you all!

It's now the end of January, and less than 3 weeks until I'm back in the UK. Tomorrow I have my last classes for this semester, and then 4 exams in the coming weeks. Seems like just the other day I came here, and already half my time is over!

Leaning Tower of Suurhusen

Leaning Tower of Suurhusen

On Monday I took a break from my studies to visit the world's most leaning building - The Leaning Tower of Suurhusen. And even better - it is covered in the semester ticket, so I didn't have to pay anything to get there! Who needs Pisa, when you can have Suurhusen? The tower is in a small village literally in the middle of nowhere, and with a bus turning up only once hourly, and it pouring down with rain (Yes! Finally we got proper rain) we decided to catch the bus coming in 10 minutes rather than over an hour - meaning of a 5 hour round trip, we spent less than a quarter of an hour at the thing we came to see - but who cares, it was fun!

Himmelssaal

Himmelssaal

Last week were my last classes with the seventh (and final) semester students - We took a trip to see the Hilton Hotel in Bremen, complete with a visit to the "Himmelsaal" - a 1920's themed hall on the roof of the building. And also in the other class we went to a cafe for some drinks with the classmates and the lecturer. It was a real nice way of saying goodbye to everyone!

Viel SpaƟ!
Kevin.
