Dafne in Tel Aviv

Porträt von Dafne vor Humboldt.

Hi! My name is Arianna, but friends and family call me by my middle name, Dafne. I am Italian, and I study Integrated Natural Resource Management at HU. This semester, things are a little different: I’m an exchange student at Tel Aviv University!

      Living in the Middle East has been a dream of mine for a long time. As I arrived for my exchange semester in Tel Aviv, I found a lively and welcoming campus, cultural differences and new gratitude for translation software - all in a city that never sleeps.

      Visiting Jerusalem and Bethlehem is a must for every trip across Israel and the Palestinian territories. These cities appear especially amazing during religious festivities. In this blog, I bring you with me to discover them during Hanukkah and Christmas!

      University in Tel Aviv is quite different than it is in Berlin. In this final blog post, I share some of the surprises and challenges I encountered while trying to do it all: Discovering the Holy Land while preparing to succeed in my exams.

      As students at HU Berlin, you can apply to spend a semester abroad at partner universities across the globe. To inspire, encourage and inform you, our four HU ambassadors will blog about their experiences throughout the winter term. New posts every other week!
