For my internship abroad I am currently living in Tenerife at the Canary islands and will stay until February. So there is no snow for me that winter.

  • Back to Cold Germany

    Computer Chaos So after the Goodbye Dinner and a very short night my alarm started to ring at 5:00 a.m. I didn't want to get up yet, but the excitment helped me a lot to get up. It was the day of my departure and in the evening, in only 12 or 13 hours I would be in...

  • Places to see in Tenerife

    Volcano Teide The most important place to see in Tenerife is probably the volcano. It’s the highlight in the middle of the island with more than 3700 metres height, surrounded by the large National Park that starts at about 2000 metres and ends at a height of 3000...

  • Goodbye, Tenerife!

    Saying Goodbye to the Sea The next day I wanted to relax a bit (well, I know - I had done that the days before, too) and enjoy my holidays at the pool, but I also wanted to get down into the city centre next to the sea one last time in order to "say goodbye" to...

  • Carnaval Parade in Puerto de la Cruz

    Getting to know the new Interns For the next day I hadn't made any plans yet, but as I only had three days left on the island I was sure that there would be something going on. I started the day quite relaxed, as always, and stayed in bed watching TV as long as possible...

  • The last 5 days in Tenerife - Part 4: Carnaval Parade

    Never ending parade But after a while it became quite exhausting to be there at the side of the road, watching the dancing and singing participants and seeing the same thing all the time. Of course, the costumes differ a bit and the themes of the large carts, too, but...

  • The last 5 days in Tenerife - Part 3: Carnaval Parade

    The Large Carnaval Parade of Santa Cruz So finally we had been able to get to the main street in order to see the large Carnaval Parade, but as we had missed about 1 or 1, 5 hours already, all the spectacular and famous things had already passed by. We were disappointed...

  • The last 5 days in Tenerife - Part 2

    Relaxation again It was Saturday and I had decided to stay in bed a bit longer, so I just got up to put the "Do not disturb" sign at my front door in order to avoid that the cleaning lady drops in. As I was used to getting up at around 8 or 9 am, I couldn't sleep any...

  • The last 5 days in Tenerife - Part 1

    Relaxing Day The next morning I woke up quite early another time. But this time I was totally free - I stayed in bed and watched some episodes of my favorite series at TV, I didn't have a breakfast appointment or anything similar and it felt great. There were only two...

    Evening in the City Centre After I had packed the small suitcase with 7.5 kilos and was happy to have some of my things already almost on their way to Germany, I took a shower and got ready for dinner and my last time in the city centre with Mum and her boyfriend. I...

  • Last Day with Mum - Part 1

    The Last Breakfast Together Finally it was the last day with my Mum and her boyfriend and I didn't really know if I should be happy or sad - I enjoyed not being alone but I was also incredibly annoyed by my Mum's boyfriend and his embarrassing behaviour. I had been...

  • Loro Parque and Playa de las Teresitas

    Nice Time at Loro Parque The next day we met for breakfast in the lobby again and enjoyed the first meal of the day. It was the same buffet as the day before, but I liked it and it was more than sufficient for starting a day off. My Vietnamese friend supplied me with...

  • Difficult Visitors

    Arrival of the Guests After some time it had become too cold at the pool and I had went back to my room. I had unpacked the rest of my things and now I was sitting in my bed and (finally) watching German TV. Except the days during my christmas break I hadn't had the...

  • Starting the Holidays

    Suitcases and Decisions The next morning I had to get up early because I still had to pack almost everything and I wanted to get to the hotel a bit after lunch time. I got up, had some cookies for breakfast (I really didn't have anything left but cookies and some water)...

    Enjoying Freedom Goodbye annoying Person After I had finished work I felt incredibly free. But I couldn't enjoy that feeling and relax, I had to return to my appartment quickly, as the real estate woman had told me that she would come at 1 pm and have a look at...

  • Bye Bye Internship

    Relaxing last week After that weekend full of events and new impressions, for the first time I was happy that I would be bored at work and could relax there. There wasn't anything to do for me as I had been kind of excluded from all the new projects, so I focused on...

  • The Last "Working Weekend" Part 2

    My first hiking experience Sunday after our shopping trip it was time for my first hiking experience. Even if the girls had told us that it would be a short and simple hike I was a bit excited, because I am sporty but not incredibly fit. After my semester in France I...

  • Colleague Distraction

    Relaxing Sunday The Sunday after our exhausting trip to La Gomera I stayed in bed quite long, had a short breakfast and went back to bed. I was still tired and didn't want to leave my bed - I just needed a relaxing Sunday. The weather wasn't quite good and despite...

    Exhausting Bus Drive After our longer break and the hiking test in the laurel forest we were back in the bus and the guide told us what we would do next. Fortunately, he told us that we would start our way to the small village where it was planned to have lunch. The...
