Work placement, sightseeing and beaches
Sorry for letting you wait so long for my blog post, working and laying in the sun kept me really busy. You are probably eager to find out what I did the last two weeks, so before I tell you about my leisure time I am going to tell you something about my work placement. As I already told you in my last blog post, I am a receptionist at Jackpot Joy Group (a online gambling company) and I really like my job. I am responsible for packages, letters, setting meetings as well as for the lunch orderings, checking the meeting rooms and much more. In those two weeks I was able to make lots of friends in my company, especially at the company party, which took place last Friday at a really awesome beach club.
But enough about my work placement and back to the fun. Last weekend so on the 3rd of August Sarah and I, Julia and Max had to work, had the brilliant idea to go sightseeing at Valletta and Birgu (the only downside it had 35 degrees in the shade). Even tho it was really beautiful and interesting, we could barely enjoy it because of the heat. So after about 5 hours of walking through the streets and one outdoor museum we decided to quit sightseeing and to lay on a beach. The beach was full of Maltese, which gave it at nice flair. In the evening I went to the beer festival with some of my (so to say) flat mates. On Sunday Sarah and I just wanted to relax so we went to Mellieha bay, which was a pretty casual tourism beach, which was totally fine for me on that day. On weekdays I could not do anything after work, as presumed, except hanging out with my flat mates on the rooftop.
This weekend was pretty nice again, on Friday there was this huge company party where I could really connect with some of my coworkers. On Saturday I met up with Sarah again to go to a beach called Tuffieha Bay, it looked beautiful but was really crowded likewise the beach we went to the day after (Gneja Bay). Today started my third week here and I start to miss rain (I never thought this could happen). I really enjoy my life around here, so keep hitting the reload button until my next blog post arrives.
Greetings from the hot Malta
