Sushilicious

Rostock and sushi!? Granted, that particular Japanese delicacy is not the first thing that pops up in one’s mind when thinking of a North-eastern German city, but it actually makes an aweful lot of sense to combine the omnipresent fish dishes of Rostock with the cuisine of the Far East. Even I have to admit […]

How To Do: Mensa in Rostock

As a group of four students: two of us German and the other two exchange students from Korea, we decided to create a little guide to show the latter two a local insight to Rostock. Check out our other blogs here and here. Q&A 1. I live in Erich Schlesinger Strasse. Where is the nearest […]

The exhausting life of a student

When you travel to a new city and you are maybe a student yourself, it is always interesting to know how the daily life of students in the city you visit is. Of course, you can even use this knowledge to copy their behavior and feel like a local yourself and maybe get the chance […]
