Travel Log: Germany to USA


Every year, thousands of students leave the comforts of home and embark on a journey of self-discovery through study abroad.One such YFU student is Alina from Germany who is spending her exchange year in a small town in Pennsylvania. Throughout the course of her stay in the US, Alina will be blogging about her exchange experience with German magazine, SPIEGEL ONLINE, sharing her first-hand account of American life.

Check out her arrival blog to learn about her first weeks – she’s already been introduced to cross-country running, pumpkin carving and attended homecoming – and to follow her continued updates (keep in mind unless you know German you’ll have to rely on Google translate which isn’t always accurate)!
