Sneaking into lectures?
Now there is an idea, it would be great to hear a lecture from a professor at a foreign university....just don't ask me to take notes

helllls no...

No note... other students will look at you and either think your so smart you dont need notes, or are just reckless... either way im sure you its a conversation starter and from there, straight to the bar with a heap of new friends... You could go up to that cute girl in the front row and say "Geez, that was a good lecture today" and then be like "Do you wanna go chill in the bar for a bit"

I dont know much about universities in europe, but im sure everyones up for a beer after a lecture...

Thats a good idea, but are schools in session in Europe during the summer? I'd love to listen to a lecture on American history or something like that at an English school. Or mabye a French or German lecture on WW2, hehe.

hey good point som, it would be really interesting to see other country's perspectives on the war instead of the ol "you'd be speaking german if it wasn't for us" approach.

LEEROY thats a hilarious and potentially fantastic idea....

Myself....I also had somewhat self destructive parents, and I learned a lot from that.....I still drink though....its all about moderation....I really havent been Drunk in a long long time....usually I will have about 3 beers and feel good and relaxed......In Europe, I will be drinking a lot more frequently but I wont get too drunk....ehehe.......

Its not about getting drunk...its about sharing the act of drinking and socializing with the people around you....My absolute favorite thing to do is simply to order a tall mug of beer and slowly sip it away while I people watch on a busy street corner and take in the extraordinary sights, architecture, and culture that is so foreign to me.

don't get completely obliterated, don't let your drink out of your sight even for a minute, be leery of dudes who try to buy you drink after drink after drink after drink... In short, act pretty much the same as you would at a bar here in the states. Just make sure you know how to get back to your lodgings in relative safety in a compromised state. Good luck!

About the classes in summer thing: most of the schools here offer a summer session, and alot of study abroad programs are for summer sessions, so my guess is that you could find a lecture if you really wanted to.

Ha so funny post but i recomend drinking as much as you can tolerate and then a little more you might be back so you can try to remember it all the second time but you should party the first time i was only there 10 days and i remember most of the day time and with the help of a friend i recal at least 4 nights worth of stuff, people drinke pretty well in germany so come prepared, And adam may be right moderation in a place you are unfimiliar is smart i got shitty a few nights and almost got in some trouble but oh well drunk people are the same everywhere a lot of fun

I look at traveling like I'm always going to Las Vegas...and you all know that slogan of course (What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas). Traveling is when I cut loose, forget about all the stuff i have to think and worry about when I get back home, and just focus on living for the moment as much as I can, and having as much fun as possible. If fun for you involves drinking, then cheers. If it doesn't, more power to you. I for one happen to enjoy pub/bar culture and I find that given the right amount of confidence (naturally and through alcohol) you can meet some really interesting people from all over in any bar. Also, Beer turns me into SuperJack B) (when I've had a fairly considerable amount), a being sent back through time to change the future for one lucky lady....oh wait nevermind that's the Shermanator from American Pie 2. Still, I have fun.
