This day was the last but one working day of my work experience in Belfast. I finished all my task, which were unfinished. Today flew by that fast.
In the evening we went for an Irish dinner at ‚Morning Star‘, a recommendation of Tim :D. The atmosphere for our last evening together in Belfast was great. Unfortunately, the paying process was problematic. At first, they told us to separate the receipt by ourselves and go and pay separately. Then at the cashier, they said us it isn’t possible to settle up one by one. In the end, we had to borrow money from Tim, who paid by card. When Tim was settling up, another staff told him that we could pay individually. It was such a mess! „“Nothing lasts forever. Forever is a lie. All we have is what’s in between hello and goodbye.”“ weiterlesen

The day started quite relaxing. I finished to pack my luggage and enjoyed that Sunday.
Of course, we had to go to the Belfast Spring Continental Market. Now I have time and place in my blog entry to talk about this beautiful and impressive food market. The food market had a lot of booths from different nations as Italian, Greek, French with freshly made savoury pastries, Spain with paella, Netherlands, with Dutch pancakes, Germany, with currywurst and bratwurst sausages or ostrich or venison burger from the exotic meats of the World Traders. Besides they also offer handcrafted and bespoke local products. „„Frog.““ weiterlesen

Work was relaxed today because a colleague allowed me to leave earlier from work because there was just one colleague left in the office. I informed my supervisor by writing an email and left at 1 p.m. At home, I tried it one more time at the post office nearby our accommodation. I was lucky things didn’t turn out worse. I missed the collector for the parcels, but the staff gave me a discount of 10% for my 7 kg large package. That’s why my box will be sent on next Tuesday because Monday is a Bank holiday. „„Remember: Enjoy your life today, because yesterday has gone and tomorrow may never come.““ weiterlesen

At work, I continued the task, which needs to be finished. In the afternoon Jenny and I tried to send our parcels to Germany. First we decided to use Hermes, but unfortunately, we didn’t have a label from Hermes because we thought it is a Hermes shop, where the labels will be printed out. However, the shop owner apologised, and we had to left the shop. My parcel was quite heavy however we had to walk home again. „„Sports do not build character. They reveal it.““ weiterlesen

Our awaited ‚Game of Thrones‘ (GoT) tour took place today. This Sunday started early, but fortune wasn’t with us. First of all, I was exhausted. Second Son and I left the house quite early, but Google Maps or the GPS from my phone had some errors. My ’smartphone‘, which was stupid this time, navigated us to the wrong location. We had to run to the bus, which was exhausting. By the way, Son doesn’t have mobile data so he couldn’t help. Ten mins too late, we arrived the bus. Robert also joined this tour, cause he is such a huge fan of this series. „„Winter is coming.““ weiterlesen

The last but one week started today. My supervisor was absent until tomorrow. I still got my current task, to set up the users at Outlook of Microsoft Office 365.
At home, a funny situation happened. Son often arrived home late, that’s why he can’t make dinner for us. Therefore he used to help sometimes, i.e. taking the trash out or cutting vegetables. Today Son learned that our accommodation has a second rubbish bin. It doesn’t sound funny but let me reconstruct the conversation, which has occurred today: „„Have fun because that’s what life is about.““ weiterlesen

Another sunny day in Belfast. I can’t stand the warm temperature anymore. I even got epistaxis or well-known as the nosebleed. Having breakfast, uploading some blog entries and watching series started my Sunday. „„Prison itself is a tremendous education in need of patience and perseverance.

Today was sunny Saturday. I know it’s not typical, but for the citizen, it’s a great pleasure to have such good weather from time to time. „„Belfast is the best and most convenient place in Ulster for the establishment of shipbuilding … „“ weiterlesen

First of all, I recognise that my blog entries are short. I am sorry for it, but nothing special happens during the week, where I can write a lot of content about it. Maybe I got used to the life here, and not many things surprise me anymore. I think because of that.
Usually, after work, I go home and have dinner with the others or relax and enjoy my time here. I hope my entries will be longer on the weekend *snicker* ^^‘. „„There is nothing special in the world, nothing magic, just physics.““ weiterlesen

The first weekend in our new accommodation started early. At 9 a.m. Jenny and I made German pancakes and porridge with frost fruits. It was the first time I’ve ever made porridge *haha*. „„You see but you do not observe. The distinction is clear.““ weiterlesen
