Final Days in Wrocław

On Thursday we had an interesting meeting with a representative from Oakfusion. They gave us insights into the IT world, talked about different employment opportunities and what it’s like to work in tech. It was incredibly informative and got many of us thinking seriously about our future career paths in tech. This day was also a little emotional as it was our last English lesson. Over the course of these lessons, we not only improved our language skills, but also made close friends. It was hard to say goodbye to this part of our trip.

Friday was a day full of emotions and preparations for our departure. In the morning we picked up flowers, which we carefully selected as a token of our gratitude to the SEMPER AVANTI team. This team had been with us every step of the way and made our trip unforgettable and smooth. It was hard to say goodbye… Later that day, we visited the University of Science and Technology in Wrocław. It gave us an insight into the city’s vibrant academic community.

Saturday was a busy and exciting day. Catching the bus at the last minute was an adrenaline-filled start to our journey back to Berlin. Looking back on our time in Wrocław, it’s clear that the city had a huge impact on us. From the charming streets to the warm people to the rich experiences in tech companies and educational institutions, Wrocław felt like a place of learning and discovery. When we traveled back to Berlin, we not only had our luggage with us, but also a treasure trove of memories, knowledge and experiences that we will keep for a long time.

Exploring Tech and Culture

On Monday, we spent the whole day exploring Krakow. It was amazing to see the city’s old buildings and feel its lively vibe. We learned a lot just by walking around and looking at everything

Tuesday was back to learning English in the morning, which was good practice for the rest of the day. We then visited NeveraTech, where a junior web developer talked to us about working in tech, which was really cool and made me think about doing something similar. In the afternoon, we relaxed and walked around the Botanical Garden of the University of Wrocław. It was peaceful and pretty with all the different plants.

On Wednesday, we had a meeting at the European Union Information Center, which was interesting because we learned about how the EU affects our lives. After that, we checked out Wrocław’s city center, which was full of history and busy streets. The day ended with a visit to the software company QulIX, where we saw firsthand how they develop software and got a peek at the tech world. We Visited a Cat Cafe too!

Exploring Innovation and Connections in Wrocław

On Wednesday, our adventure took an educational turn as we visited a Polish IT school. It was intriguing to see that they’re gearing up for the CCNA exam. This visit underscored the school’s commitment to providing a solid foundation in technology for its students. Later in the day, our English lesson with Giorgi moved outdoors. Learning in the fresh air was refreshing and added a new dimension to our educational experience.

Thursday was a day filled with wonder as we explored the Wrocław Zoo. This excursion allowed us to take a delightful pause from our learning routine, immersing ourselves in the natural world. After that we continued with English lessons.

Friday presented an inspiring conclusion to our week. We had the opportunity to meet the CEO of the John Weston Group, a company that collaborates with industry giants like Google and Pepsi. He gave us invaluable insights into the dynamics of a creative software company, showing us the ropes of innovation and collaboration in the tech field. His passion and knowledge were infectious, offering us a glimpse into a possible future path. The day wrapped up with an bar-hopping tour, letting us unwind and bond over the experiences we shared throughout the week. This tour was not just about relaxation but also about celebrating our journey and the connections we made along the way.

Three Days in Wrocław

On Sunday, we embarked on our journey to Wroclaw, boarding a Flixbus that would take us to our destination. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised to find that we each had our own rooms, allowing us a personal space to unwind.

The following day, Monday, marked the beginning of our more structured experiences. We received tickets for public transportation. It was also a day of introductions; we had the opportunity to meet the other students who would be with us. Among the new faces was George, our English teacher.

Tuesday was filled with engaging activities. The morning started with English lessons, where George’s teaching skills shone, making learning both fun and informative. The afternoon was dedicated to a gnome hunting game, an entertaining way to discover hidden gems around the city. As evening fell, we gathered around the biggest TV we could find and engaged in competitive rounds of Mario Kart, a perfect way to bond and unwind after a day of learning and exploration.
