Day 12 – Rotterdam – 05/25/2023
Today is the final day of excursions and we were able to visit the town of Delft and the Kinderdijk windmills. One interesting thing I learned was that Delft and many other cities/towns in the Netherlands love to have open air markets. They have all sorts of food and shops that one can go to [...]
Last full day in with the group. We went on a tour of a small village and to see the surrounding old windmills. It was interesting to hear about the history of the town and how art and Vermeer still has a strong grasp on the region and its decisions. I really enjoyed this trip [...]
Today we went on a biking tour of the ports. It was really interesting to learn about the logistics of how ports work, and impressive to see the sheer size of the ships. I enjoyed getting some fresh air by the water and biking in the tunnel.
Rotterdam day 2
I had a great day today in Rotterdam. I was able to learn a lot from the lean 6 sigma presentation. It was really eye opening to see how effective it can be to solve problems. I also had a great time on the bike tour seeing the port and the harbor.

Hamburg Day 1 – 5/20/2023
Overall, my first impressions of the city were immaculate. On the way in, I could see parts of the bay and some of the great architecture. The best part of the day, however, was the miniature wonderland. I thought this would just be a couple trains running in loops around some figurines, but it was [...]
