    Deutsche Museum

    February 10, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Pasamos la mañana recorriendo el museo. Solo pudimos recorrer una parte porque es enorme.

    A todos nos gusto mucho el area de mineria, y los barcos y aviones antiguos.

    Caminamos un monton pero valio la pena.Read more

    Deutsches Museum #1

    January 27 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 3 °C

    The German Museum is huge. I go immediately after my first day of language school. There are actually three buildings. Maybe Germany just has too much history and every museum needs three buildings. I don't know, but it seems likely Right now.

    I've heard over and over that the German Museum is incredible and it really takes days to go through. Turns out they're right. The Deutches Museum I visit is dedicated to the history of technology, which includes the history of mining in Germany - since the first time coal was ever mined in Germany - the history of power - since power was people pushing things until today - astronomy, surveying, flight, marine history, and then there is the Akademie collection which includes the telescope that identified Neptune. There's also a cafe, with an incredible exhibit on .... coffee..

    There's also huge sections on nanotechnology, technology inventions and more - yet most of this goes over my head. Tell me about cars and trucks and travel patterns and housing and it makes sense to me. Other people can be experts in Nanotech. I'm just happy I caught a power exhibit with raw lightning shooting over faraday cages.

    Munich - Science Museum

    October 11, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    Gyurme went to Dachau but I decided I didn't really want to see another concentration camp, so I went to the science museum instead. It wasn't as interactive and child-oriented as science museums often are (aww, those things are fun! Maybe it was in the kids-only area downstairs) but it had heaps of neat stuff nonetheless.

    I particularly liked the cut open German submarine (the first type of U-boat, U-1, actually the only one ever made), and the scanning electron microscope demonstration (spoken in German, but I could at least look at the images, eg. #2 of a ~1cm scorpion, and zoomed in on the serrated inner edge of its claw).

    There were also multiple jet engines (#3) a ~9 storey high Focault pendulum (#4), one of the planes that featured in The Wind Rises (#5), and an electricity/lightning demonstration that I mostly missed (#6). Spent a good 4 hours here but could have stayed longer. Most descriptions were in German and English but unfortunately the demonstrations (of which there were many) were all in German.

    Deutsches Museum in München

    April 30, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    Ich hatte heute einen ganz wunderbaren Tag im Deutschen Museum in München. Ich habe mir die Füße platt gelaufen, von der Meeresforschung und Energietechnik über Nano- und Biotechnologie zu den Erfindungen des deutschen Zukunftspreises. Natürlich war die Vorführung der Hochspannungsanlage in der Abteilung Starkstromtechnik interessant, aber am beeindruckendsten fand ich den einstündigen Vortrag zum Raster-Elektronenmikroskop in der Abteilung Nano- und Biotechnologie.

    Ein anschließender kurzer Abstecher zum Marienplatz durfte natürlich nicht fehlen :)

    August 16, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    It was that time of the summer I have been waiting for so long. It was time to finally step in the country I wanted to visit in a long time. Germany. Little I had known I would want to visit this country if things hadn't changed so much over the past 2 years of my life. But as they say everything happens for a reason and many of these reasons have finally brought me here. It begins in Munich.

    I took an overnight flight from Canada so I didn't sleep the night as I am not able to steep on planes for some reason so I was exhausted when I reached my friends place and he asked me to take a nap. My brain just wouldn't let me sleep because it knew that I was in Germany no matter how dead the body was the mind could not rest, which resulted in me going to the nearest coffee shop and ordering a coffee in German of course! My first german interaction with anyone in Munich.

    I was just in a mixed state of shock and excitement, neither of which i could handle physically but the coffee was trying its best. I eventually had lunch and had to meet up with a friend for dinner who I met in Canada in the fall semester of 2015. It was great to see him again and I had my first Döner with him in the Hauptbahnhof area, it was cool mainly because he was a Turk-German and they were the first ones to originate Döner in Germany haha. I was actually shocked to see much of the population near the Hauptbahnhof area being of non german origin. Really shocking, it was like I wasn't even a minority in that area. Maybe its normal for a big city like Munich but it was not how I pictured Munich.
