Start of the first week

Belfast – Meeting with Intern Europe

Today we were invited to a meeting with Intern Europe at their office. Purpose of this meeting was to fill out some missing information on some documents, and to give us some information on the first day at our companies.

Furthermore an employee walked us to the city centre and helped us getting our tickets for the bus. I also were able to pick up some souvenirs there.

From this point on we discovered the city centre a bit more and we did some grocery shopping for the evening.

Delving into London

I started my Sunday by heading straight into London center, more specifically Covent Garden, where I started exploring. Covent Garden is located in the West End, and is London’s main theater and entertainment area. Amongst tons of tourists and street performers, I helped myself to a burger and fries at Shake Shack, enjoying the festivity.

Making my way to Waterloo Station, I met up with Nickolas and Steven. We started walking over the Westminster Bridge, passed the Westminster Palace and made our way towards Buckingham Palace. To get there we passed through St Jame’s Park. Being a Sunday, the area near Buckingham Palace was filled with crowds.


Ending the day, Nickolas, Steven and I went to a Cafe and I had some traditional British tea, Earl Gray.




The Beginning of the Journey

Starting off the day, I was driven by my parents to the airport where I checked my bags, went through security, and partook in an uneventful boarding aboard the plane that headed for London Stansted with my fellow trainees.

Arriving in London, we collected our bags and were greeted by a fellow from the agency, with whom we took a bus to the headquarters of said agency. There my roommate Louis and I were the first to be picked up by a taxi and our hostess who brought to the guest home.

Louis and I spent rest of the day discovering the city and getting to know London. We explored parts pf the city center and ate fish and chips. So far, my experience has been very positive and I am looking forward to getting to know my company, but before I do, we have to attend an English course at the agency next week.

Explore London…

Today we woke up a bit late because we were still a bit tired from the flight. After a good breakfast we were powered up for the day. I decided to go out and explore London. Luckily I just have to walk around 600 meters and then I can take a bus which can bring me directly to the London eye. I mean, I needed around 1 hour and 20 minutes for the trip but it was worth it. I arrived at the London eye and I instantly saw so many amazing sights.

My first day in London

With our first morning we were beginning our day quite relaxful. Pascal and I woke up at nine o‘ clock to have a little breakfast and preparation. We had arranged a visit of the city centre with Louis, a classmate of my host sibling Pascal. A little late we left the house of our host family but we catched the train nevertheless. Arriving on the platform in time we realized the train to have a delay of a couple of minutes. After seven stops we reached London bridge where we met up Louis.

Lets go for Belfast

Today we flew from Berlin to Belfast , after i sayed goodbye to friends and family we got into the plane and after round about 2 and a half hour we arrived in belfast. The first thing we realisied ist that the bus ticket in northern irland are very expensive. We traveled to the city centre where the agency picked us up.

The secound half of the day was just getting used to everything , unpacking our clothes and getting the most important things for the evening and the next day. We even cooked a nice meal at the evening.

Berlin to Belfast

Berlin – Departure

Starting early in the morning in Berlin I was pretty nervous about the flight and not missing anything. It was my first flight afterall. I arrived at Schönefeld Airport at around 8:30 am together with Kevin and Andy and we later met Florian at the terminal.

Luggage check in and security check cost us almost 2 hours, so we were ready to board just sly after 10:00 am.

In retrospect flying wasn’t as bad as I thought it would. Except the landing was pretty rough.

First glimpse of Belfast

At 7am I stood up and made my way to the Airport Schönefeld in Berlin. From there, our Plane flew straight to Belfast International Airport. Althrough I already flew once, it was still exiting. The flight took around 2 hours and went without any trouble. „First glimpse of Belfast“ weiterlesen
