Vacation is ahead!

Did you remark that there are only about 2 months left until vacation time? And that already 21 % of all Germans booked their vacation online in 2010, as published by the Federal Statistical Office. In the age group that we, so our BusApps group is mainly in, so the age group between 16 and 24 years about 15 % booked their trips online. I already made several experiences and was never disappointed. I used expedia.com, booking.com, clickandfly.com, bahn.de and some others. I find it quite convenient to be able to research myself about what hotels are available and what are really the cheapest flights and which times fit to my schedule the best. About 3 years ago I did an internship in a travel agency and from this experience I can tell that if you know a bit about how to do research on the web you are able to do the same job as they do there. So go ahead and try it, vacation is ahead!

Carnival in Berlin

This weekend or better said this Sunday I spend my time at the *”Karnival der Kulturen”* in Berlin. The weather was beautiful and my friends and I had a lot of fun watching many cultural groups performing. At the “ring road” 77 associations from Berlin used this day to present a part of their culture to the audience. During the Carnival I was reminded how diversed Berlin is. It was a colorful event with a positive energy among the people.
My friends and I later participated at the last association which is named “Escobar”. It is an association that represents islands of the Carribean like Trinidad and Tobago, Dominica, St. Lucia, Jamaica and many more. There, they played their local music which is called “Soca”. We all had a great time dancing and enjoying the atmosphere.
