„First we eat, then we do everything else.“

(quote from M.F.K. Fisher)

2nd of April in 2018:

Today the rain woke me up.

rain in the morning

The first sleep in a strange bed is unfamiliar. I usually slept but not enough, because I used to get up at 5 a.m. at home. Therefore I can´t sleep until 9 or 10 a.m. except when I am exhausted.
The room has two beds, two commodes, a desk and a wardrobe. One aspect, which bothers me a little bit is the space in the room. If I want to leave the room, I have to go sideward between the bed and the commodes to reach the door. All in all, I would say it has modest furniture. I know, I shouldn´t complain because it could have been worse. My mother often says: That is enough for a student to live.

Day 2 02.04.2018 Monday


Welcome back to my journey,

At the beginning of the day me and Giang did some sports to wake up.

Today it was raining the whole day but we went to tesco supermarket to get all other important household items. The supermarket got a larger range of shopping goods and it’s like 15-20% cheaper than tesco express. In the supermarket you will find a lot of discount offers for example “any 3 goods for 2 pounds”. Tesco stores are as big as the “Real” or “Kaufland” stores in Germany. After we got everything for our home we went with a companion to discover all of our work placements.

“Every journey begins with a single step.”

Lao Tzu supposed to say that.

My „journey“ started on the 1st of April in 2018. But first, let me introduce myself.
I am Huong Giang Doan Thi, 21 years old. I am an apprentice as an Information Technology Specialist – specialising in System Integration. Part of my apprenticeship is foreign work experience. Because of that, I will stay in Belfast, the UK for the next two months. Therefore I am going to share my experiences on this blog. I am quite curious about this journey. To live and work in a foreign country for a long time was one of my wishes, which I have had since I was in middle school.
Let´s see what might happen …
