Berlin Wrap-Up

I spent this past summer participating in the International Internship Program in Berlin. I chose this program because it allowed me to earn credits while working full time in another country. Before starting this program, I had never had an internship nor been to Europe, so this program was full of firsts. I went in…

To My Pre-IIP Self

Oh my, it’s the last week. I can’t believe I’m already saying that. One more week in Berlin and I’m out of Europe for a while. Well, kind of. This weekend I’m taking a short trip to Strasbourg, France which I’m seriously looking forward to, and then I’m returning to Berlin to meet up with…

A Full Time Berliner

I’ve been having such an amazing time in Berlin. I’ve grown to love this city, and it feels more and more like home each day. Whenever I think I’ve run out of new things to try, I discover more fun activities and cool places to explore. Being here has been a nice change from staying…

I Want it All

Another week filled with great times and delicious food has flown by in Berlin. More new activities were experienced and places were explored.

I’m only on week 3 of my IIP program in Berlin but I feel like I’ve learned so much already. One of my biggest takeaways from the first part of this experience is that living and working somewhere is very different from visiting as a tourist. I’ve traveled in the past to places with significant…

These past few weeks have flown by. I’ve now been in Berlin for 3 weeks, and I can’t believe I’m nearing the halfway point. This past week was quite eventful, and I got to check a major item off my Berlin bucket list. On Sunday, I finally got around to checking out some of the…

Living in Berlin

Hello again from Berlin! I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks already it’s all just flying by. So much has happened since my last post. As each day passes, I’m slowly getting more and more comfortable in my home for the summer. I know where all the important stores are, and I’m getting better at…

Berlin Goals

Guten Tag from Berlin! I’ve been here for just under a week and everything thus far has been amazing. I absolutely love the city and I’ve already had a chance to do many of the things I’ve always wanted to do here. After writing this blog, I have one more night of sleep until I…

IIP Berlin – 1 Week out

Hello! My name is Ryan Bullett, and I’m a rising junior from New Jersey. I’m pursuing a degree in Marketing and Global Management, with a certificate in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. I love to travel, and a part of why I chose Pitt was because of the study abroad opportunities. I jump at any chance to…
