From the Ocean College voyage 2020/2021 there are only 15 days left. 15 days mean two times happy hour, two times laundry day, a couple of times shower day and most important 15 days left for things you can only do during Ocean College. And now I have prepared a list of 15 things, us Ocean College students will really miss after we arrived in Emden, that means when Ocean College is over. Now you are asking yourself: ”Why 15 things and not for instance 10 or 20 things?” The answer for that question is simple: 15 things because of the 15 days we have left from this years Ocean College.

    The bad things
     
    But when we think about Ocean College not everything was so great that we will miss it. We can see that at the few examples which I will show you soon. But these things are still better than the bad things at home.
