Travel Log: A Lens into Europe

12 weeks in Europe.
7 countries visited.

From January to March 2024, I interned at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbrücken, Germany. While abroad, I had the chance to explore places in Germany and neighbouring countries, many of which left me with strong impressions.

I visited cities of all sizes, from small towns like Cochem, population: 5,000, to bustling metropolises like Paris, the 2nd largest urban area on the continent. Across various trips by train, I peered through windows at beautiful landscapes: the stunning mountains and lakes in the Swiss Alps, the picturesque villages and castles along the Moselle river, and more — many of which I would love to revisit in a better season.

I photographed my favourite sights and wrote about places that, to me, stood out. With this travel log, I hope to give you my first impressions of Europe — or at least that of where I visited.
