Sammatz

Volunteering with the Eco-City Program in Michaelshof Sammatz is a two-way street for me – I always receive as much as I give. Participating in this event was a meaningful endeavor that I learned more about myself and the breadth of my abilities. I discovered that I am capable of accomplishing the new goals that I had never attempted before.

90 Seconds in Europe

It’s almost too cool for it to be a school! From classes in fairy-tale palace-like buildings to floating on thermal springs with new friends from all over the world. This was my summer school in central Europe, presented to you in 90 seconds.

Jump into the Sky

Have you tried any extreme sports? I had never thought about paragliding but I eventually did it during the road trip to Turkey with my friends. I enjoyed the excitement that it gave me! The Aegean Sea was under my feet. The sea was amazingly blue with some magical green.

The Best View Comes After The Hardest Climb

Joining a trip to a Swiss mountain village in Zermatt. It is a village that could have come straight out of a movie set of a magical story! It is not the mountain I conquered, but myself!

Among White Walls

Visiting Santorini always seemed like an unreachable dream for me. The beauty of the unique white architecture and breath-taking nature views are like a paradise on earth, or I would say – something out of this world. In Europe, you can travel to every country within a 2-hour flight. That’s why I didn't hesitate to travel around the whole of Europe in person. Visiting Greece was a perfect ending for my exchange.

Heart the Chocolate Mountain Matterhorn

Spice up My Life

This photo was a record of transforming me to be another person. I and my friends accidentally crossed the border between Austria and Germany. Therefore, we went to highline 179. It was really scary to walk up to the sky bridge. When I was walking, I almost gave up but I decided to finish. This experience did inspire me – I could do everything and it motivated me to be a better person.

Holding The Tower of Pisa

Visiting the Tower of Pisa was on my bucket list since I found out about my exchange to Italy. The iconic Tower of Pisa is located in the Italian city of Pisa. It was hilarious to watch how everyone tried to capture the perfect angle for the pictures. In this picture, I tried my best to hold my legs.
