Internship update

My internship started two months ago. Time goes by so quickly and I really learned and explored a lot since I came to Koper.

The working atmosphere is very familiar. I feel free in choosing and working on tasks. We do a lot of research, so it’s like educating yourself about topics you are interested in. I got a lot of ideas for a future place of employment or companies I would be interested to work for.

Besides work I have a lot of spare time which I use to travel. It’s also not a problem to ask David spontaneously to get off, if there’s something exciting I want to do 😉

In August we climbed Slovenias highest mountain Triglav together. That was an awesome experience!

On weekends I often do activities with Elena and Peter. We arranged to live together in an apartment with two Slovenian girls. I already feel like a local and enjoy living in Koper a lot. It’s like holidays for me 😉

Koper offers various events on weekends during the summertime. Although streets are full of people in the evening it’s not a party town for the younger ones. But the capital is very close and easy to reach by carpooling. I went there several times and really fell in love with this city!

There’s a special event called odprta kuhna (open kitchen) which takes place every Friday at the central market square in Ljubljana and sometimes also in Koper. Different restaurants from Slovenia which offer food from all around the world show their culinary skills. It’s awesome and really hard to decide between all the delicious things…

Last week I took part in a workshop in Serbia that was about building and creating sculptures out of wood. I met a lot of interesting people and got the chance to see the rural part of Serbia as well as the second largest city Novi Sad. I definitely want to go there again!

So my conclusion so far is that I really appreciate this internship and I’m going to have another great month in Slovenia before university starts again.
