New about page.

My name is Robin Hogreve and I’m from Germany. I started this blog back in August 2016.

I always had a passion for traveling and photography.

And right after I finished Highschool back in 2013, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. So it really was a no-brainer to go live somewhere else for some time. Canada quickly became my plan a.

And so, to finance my shenanigans, I got myself a job. Working at a printery for very minimal wages, I still managed to build up a nice little buffer.

When the time came, I boarded an airplane to Toronto. That was on  April 17, 2014.

I had one year to figure out what I really wanted for my life.

But first, I had the time of my life. Working, learning, meeting new people. I really became partly Canadian by heart. Heck, I even made some friends over there.

But one year really isn’t that long. After what felt merely like a few month, I had to pack my bags and go back to Germany. It was April 16, 2015. I hadn’t really figured out what I wanted to do just then.

But I had a blink of an idea. So I did some research and applied for University.

I got accepted for Geoenvironmental Engineering at the Clausthal University of Technology. It also was the only University I had applied for.

In my first semester, I decided that just University just wasn’t enough. I wanted to do something practical.

So I joined the Green Voltage Racing Team. It’s my Univerity’s Formula Student team.     We build electronic racecars.

My plan was it, to do at least my bachelor (of science). That changed. I want to do my master’s degree after I finish the bachelor’s.

That’s it for now.

    1. Not everyone takes a gap year here in Germany. Actually, it’s quite a few people who take the chance and do something. Most people are afraid that a gap year won’t look good on their resumes/ CVs. I thought some foreign-country-experience could look good, but I did it just for me.
      I’ll probably go to do a semester abroad (in Norway or Sweden), through Erasmus+ (a European student Exchange program) next year.
      But I agree.
      It’s something everyone should do.
