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.

Does everyone in Germany take a gap year to do something or was that a choice you made? It seems like such great experience! Something everyone should do 🙂

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.
