First of all, everyone knows the rainy weather in Belfast. But yesterday was the first sunshine since I have arrived here. Let me share this moment with you:

4th of April in 2018:
Today my day started a little bit earlier than the others. Even Colin (an employee from InternEurope) told me to begin work at 10 a.m.; I remembered that Kelli (She is my supervisor at ‚volunteer now‘.) asked me to start work at 8:30 a.m. Not a problem for me. It supposed to say ‚The early bird catches the worm.‘

Finally, the holiday is over. I was bored because, when I arrived nearly every shop was closed. But to my surprise some shops were open. It is different than Germany. I like it. I can buy stuff even when there is a banking holiday

Belfast looks great
On Sunday the 1st of April 2018 I arrived in Belfast, from this day on I will call Belfast my new home for two months.
After the landing we drove together to the Europe Centre bus station. From the Europe Centre we drove to our accommodation. Our house looks great.
After our roomtour we went to the Tesco Epress for our food shopping.
Today we met at the intern europe office to get important information concerning our stay here.
Their employees talked about the handling of the apartments and answered any questions from our side.

2nd of April in 2018:
Today the rain woke me up.
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.
“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 …
