“Wednesday we were in one of the most amazing technology
museums in the world,” said Urban. “We saw airplanes, locomotives, a very
realistic (and long) coal mine, and much, much more. It was estimated that if
a visitor spent one minute at each exhibit, it would take 36 days to see the
enjoyed the first trip to Germany so much and found it so worthwhile that I signed up for the second
European trip,” said Paul Murphy, a senior from Oakbrook Terrace. “Going
to Munich was a blast. It was interesting to see a whole different region of
Germany than the last time we went. It makes history that much more real to a
person when you walk upon the site where it happened.” On a lighter note, Urban said that early in the trip the group
went “to a family-style restaurant that had not seen Americans for a long time.
It was a good start to a week of fine eating.” The trip also included ample
opportunities for students to shop for relatives, friends and themselves. “We
came back loaded,” Urban reported.
