From my perspective, the CERN Trip was absolutely amazing. I am so happy that I was part of this intercultural experience. We learned so much that we couldn’t have learned in a classroom and I am grateful that we took learning beyond the classroom.
One of the things we did was a boat ride where we learned about the history of Geneva and we took a walk around the Geneva Lake, which was very beautiful.
On another day we visited the Red Cross Museum, which was incredible. I explored so many things about the Red Cross and its amazing work I didn’t know about. The Museum made me realise how important the Red Cross is.
One highlight was the CERN visit, which was very interesting as well and the funny thing was that the guide was actually from Beijing. I learned a lot about the Physics but also about how many nationalities actually work at CERN.
My personal favourite was the visit to the United Nations. Our tour guide explained everything so well. It is amazing how many countries come together and work together. I was so impressed that I am actually thinking of a career in the United Nations.
At the end, we went to a Swiss restaurant where we ate Fondue, which is a very traditional food in Switzerland.
During the Trip we learned a lot about the European culture and how different it is to the Chinese culture.
Overall I would recommend this trip to everyone. You will learn so much more than you will in a classroom and you will have an amazing time.
