Melanie's Journey to Germany

Current Location

Lüneburg, Germany

Join me on my journey to Lüneburg, Germany! I will be learning the German language at Leuphana Univesrsität (University) and exploring the history and culture of the Lower Saxony region of Germany.


The temperature this week has been beautiful. The dark sky and rain has caused many to complain, but I love it because bright sunlight gives me migraines. 


My time writing for Reach the World is coming to an end, but I still have many adventures ahead in Germany and beyond.  

Field Notes

German trash collection and recycling seems very similar to that in the USA, but there are quite a few confusing differences, and Germans take recycling very seriously.


Many American companies, including T-Mobile, Domino's Pizza, and Burger King, do business in Germany.  Some even change their names so that they are easier for Germans to pronounce.
