Bye Bye Breslau :(

The past few days here in Wroclaw have been nothing short of incredible! It feels like we just unpacked our bags, and yet time has flown by so quickly.

We’ve had the pleasure of visiting many fascinating companies and gaining insights into their operations. From informative presentations to inspiring conversations with employees, we’ve learned a great deal and gained valuable perspectives.

After we handed over our small goodbye-gifts to Anna and Giorgi, we bid Friday farewell with a final round of bar hopping. It was a night filled with laughter, memories, and unforgettable moments with my amusing colleagues.

On Saturday, it was time to say goodbye to this wonderful city. I’ll truly miss Wroclaw and can hardly believe how fast the two weeks have passed. It’s been an incredible journey that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed.

Wroclaw has now earned a special place in my heart and definitely ranks among my favorite cities! Farewell, Wroclaw <3

Keeping up with the Afib People

The past few days in Wroclaw has been packed with adventures and new experiences, and I’m excited to share them with you!

We started Monday bright and early at 8 a.m., setting off to explore Krakow. Despite it being a public holiday, Krakow was bustling with life. However, some activities were limited due to the holiday.

On Tuesday, we returned to our English course, where we learned how to create a CV and how to use prepositions like „at,“ „to,“ „in,“ and „into.“ Later, we heard from a young web developer at NeveraTech, who shared insights into her job. She talked about the benefits of remote work and the importance of networking for finding jobs. In the afternoon, we took a relaxed stroll through the botanical garden. Although there weren’t many flowers, the ones we did see made us feel like we were in a fairy tale!

Today, we visited two companies. First, we went to the Information Point of the EU, where we got insights into their activities. Although it wasn’t directly related to IT, it was still compelling to learn about their role in the EU. Then, we visited QULIX, where a friendly representative walked us through their project processes. They mainly work with banks, which was really interesting to learn about. During our conversation, she mentioned that some colleagues work remotely, but personally, she finds it a bit sad because it means less human interaction. It was interesting to see that there are different opinions on remote work. We also climbed a church tower. It was A LOT of steps, but the view from the top was worth it! Hopefully we won’t get any sore muscles tomorrow…

We have a few more days ahead until the trip concludes! Stay tuned for further updates from our journey!

Further Adventures in Wroclaw

The week in Wroclaw has flown by, and I can hardly believe how many exciting experiences we’ve already had.

Wednesday brought us to an IT school, where we gained a glimpse into their working methods. They emphasize practical work extensively, and I must say, their chairs were surprisingly comfortable, and class sizes noticeably smaller compared to our school.

Afterwards, Georgi (our english teacher) took us on a stroll through the city. We savored the fresh air and aesthetic surroundings before settling by the riverside to discuss Tuckman’s theory on team building. It was fascinating to hear different perspectives and witness how this theory is put into practice.

The next day, we visited the zoo. While we didn’t see as many animals as we’d hoped, it was still a pleasant outing and a welcome change of pace.

The highlight of the week was undoubtedly our visit to the John Weston Group on Friday. The CEO proudly showcased his company, and it was impressive to learn about the achievements of such a „small“ enterprise. Discovering their collaborations with major companies like Google and Pepsi was truly eye-opening, demonstrating that even seemingly small companies can achieve great things.

The week concluded with a bang: a session of laser tag followed by a fun-filled bar-hopping tour. It was a night of unforgettable laughter and camaraderie.

Wroclaw has truly captivated and surprised us thus far, and I look forward to what the coming days have in store. Stay tuned for more updates from our Polish adventure! <3


Last Sunday, we met at Südkreuz to take the Flixbus together to Wrocław. Upon our arrival in the city, I noticed how clean and colorful everything is here compared to Berlin.

Our accommodation, the Basecamp, provided us with single rooms with modern facilities and a great location. Unfortunately, it rained during the first two days, but we made the best of it and enjoyed ourselves in the leisure rooms of the accommodation.

Our main reason for traveling to Poland was a language course. So far, we have mainly focused on icebreaker games, such as Bingo. Today, we delved into Phrasal Verbs and then played a City Game where we searched for gnomes in the marketplace and had to answer questions about their stories.

I have to admit that I’m really enjoying the trip so far, and I’m excited to see what else awaits us. It’s interesting to get to know Polish culture and language in this way, and I look forward to more experiences in the days to come.

See you soon with new updates from Wrocław!
