We spent a wonderful motivation weekend from the 25th-27th october with the members of IAAS Hohenheim. On Friday we arrived in the afternoon-looking forward to spending three exciting days with our partner committee.
After a traditional dinner with so called “Maultaschen”, we took part in a tour around the wonderful campus and visited the castle of the University.
That evening we planned the further organization, coordinated upcoming events and discussed how to work together efficiently (Exchange Program, founding a third committee in Berlin etc.)..
The highlight of the day was our compulsory ´Fair Trade`. The countries presenting their regional specialities were Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany (Rhineland and Swabia).
The next morning, IAAS Hohenheim had arranged a meeting with a member of the airport of Stuttgart. We got the chance to take an interesting look behind the scenes.
Later on, we cooked typical Swabian food, natural for the region where Hohenheim is located. It is called “Cheesy Spätzle”. This meal is made of a sort of noodles cooked with a lot of cheese and onion in an ovenproof dish.
With a really full stomach we started a “sightseeing by night” in Stuttgart which presented us this city as a quite good place to live.
On Sunday we visited the agricultural museum after some last discussions in the morning.
The museum informed us well about several agricultural topics (e.g. plant diseases).
All in all, the journey was a pleasure and we would love to visit Hohenheim again.
great thank-you for that!
We look forward to continuing our good cooperation together! =)
