The Second Week Part 2

The beginning of the Second part in the second week was not so much Interesting. At the work I came in my daily routine here in Belfast like Berlin after two weeks. I Troubleshoot Windows Server SBS 2011 Backup Solutions, and made Excel Tables about some Backup thinks. At the free time we went on Wednesday to the gym and on Thursday to the Tesco to buy something to eat. The Weekend was the Interesting part of this week.

Express Train

Yesterday (thursday 18th) wasn’t much going on, on work but it did not bother me. So I choosed a model for the 3D printer and printed it. In the break Konrad and I bought a hole chicken because we wanted something different in the evening. But guess what? We forgot to take it out of the fridge after work because we were distracted since we went once again to the Ulster museum with our colleagues to check the technology for an upcoming event.

On friday when I arrived on my work I first checked my model I printed yesterday and I have to say it looked really good and I was statisfied. Immediately afterwards we started a new print which should be six hours. Meanwhile there was even a task; we had dismantled the computer of a coworker and built it elsewhere. Because there were three of us everything was quickly finished.

But the best of today is coming now… like always, Konrad and I have entered the train towards home but this time with our chicken we forgot the day before. After the train left the Great Victoria street I was wondering why we were driving so fast know. Konrad was looking really confused and shortly thereafter we roared past our stop… well done! Why doesn’t the train stopped at our station?! It was because we were on the express train… We could do nothing else exept for waiting even we had no tickets for the area and were a bit restless. Eventually, the train stopped in Lisbourn. Together with our chicken in our hands, we changed the platform and drove about 20 minutes back to our home station.

At the end we both could laugh about it and I even know what I am going to do on the weekend.

Let the music flow !!!

I just recognized it is already Wednesday, oh shoot. Time really flies by if you do things you really like (or don’t look at the watch). The second week just started and at the same time it is already ending. I think I need either to do more stuff to keep me busy or think of something useful.

None the less, all this mumbling still doesn’t resolve the title. Well then, let me enlighten you. „Let the music flow !!!“ 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.
