On Saturday it was finally time. After a breakfast of cereal my roommate and I made our way to the twin agency headquarters, where we were picked up by a bus. The bus journey to the airport took about an hour, where we arrived way to early, at 3.
Today was our departure day. We woke up at around 10am and started with a good breakfast. After the breakfast, we finished packing our luggage.
We left our house at around 12:30 and went to the agency. We met there the other guys and of course we were a bit early because we should have been there at around 14:00. It took us just around 1 hour to get there, as I already know from my work experience.
We arrived early at the airport so we had to wait some hours there, but better too early than too late.
Today is our flight back to Germany. So one last day… „Time to say goodbye“ weiterlesen
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.
Yesterday we arrived at the London airport and that’s were our new journey begins…
We had a calm flight and arrived a little bit earlier at the airport at Stansted. At the Airport we got picked up by a bus, was driving us to a meeting point in the middle of Lodon. That’s where we first met our host family.
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.
Finally, on Saturday, we arrived in London. We met the agency at the airport and we went together in a bus to a meeting point in London. At the meeting point…
For a long time I had waited for the moment of the beginning of our stay abroad. Concerning the whereabouts we were offered to choose between between London and Belfast in Ireland. At the end, I chose London because of my relations to the city from earlier visits, a friend studying there, my Godfather coming to London sometimes and having lived there, England itself and Cambridge. „Our day of arrival“ weiterlesen
