The Weekend

My weekend was really good but I had a to struggle with coughing for like 3 days, so I spend my weekend at home only on Saturday I was in the city with a friend to get a Coffee.
But I also had some work to do at Saturday, at 1pm some guy knocked on my door called Harry.
A first I thought some of our house mates knocked on or door but it was a craftsman because René and I wrote an e-mail to the Helpline from Intern Europe about a damaged closet and a commode.

My first day at CAPITA

Yesterday was my first day at CAPITA I didn´t really know what to think mostly I was excited.
In the morning I had to go to work by bus, it took me like 20 minutes and then a 3 minute walk to be there.
At the entrance there was a front desk with a nice lady who already waited for me and René, she gave us visitor passes and we had to sign a paper with the time we came in.
After that a guy named Gareth came to us that was Renés supervisor, Gareth showed me my supervisor called Jamie.
Me and René got split up and Jamie took me to the department where I had to work, it is an Hardware repair service. He introduced me to Jeff my mentor he already knew about me and welcomed me very friendly. „My first day at CAPITA“ weiterlesen

Belfast here we come

So today was the final day, I think everyone was quite nervous and excited at the same time.

In the morning we met us at the Schönefeld Airport to check-in our luggage, after that we went to the security check and everyone passed except René he had to go to the Border Patrol.
But everything went fine, so we went to the Duty Free to grab some snacks for the “long” flight.
We sat down and waited for a couple of minutes because some of us wanted to go to the toilette before we had to go on board. Finally we were in the Airplane and took off about 10 minutes late.
In the air I took some pictures of landscapes and the sea.
After 2 hours of flight time we arrived at the International Airport in Belfast.

I personally thought we have to wait minimum 25-35 minutes to get our luggage from the luggage treadmill, but I was very surprised I waited 30 seconds and I got my luggage.
We got to the employees who checked our Passports and then we could go on to the exit of the Airport. We looked for a way to the Main Bus station in Belfast where Natalie an Intern Europe employee waited for us to hand us the keys to our home. She organised a Taxi for me and my roommate René.
René and I met some people in the house where we live in.
We unpacked our luggage and went to Tesco a supermarket and bought food and water for some days to “survive”. Finally we had some time to relax, we made plans for dinner and we came to the conclusion that we want to go to KFC which is down the street.
After that we went home and relaxed again. Summarized the whole day was very exciting and we met nice people.
