In my first week in Brighton, I noticed that everyone was talking about a big event that was going to take place at the weekend - the Pride. But in the beginning I didn't know exactly what it was until my host mother explained it to me. Brighton and Hove Pride is an annual event in the city of Brighton and Hove that promotes the equality and diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Since this community is not as publicly represented in Austria as it is in...

I worked for 4 weeks at the World Cetacean Alliance. For the people who don't know, The WCA is the world’s largest marine conservation partnership. In the beginning I wasn't so impressed about my job but it turned out that i loved it. I imagined the office to be very different at first than it was. I expected more people to work there and the office not to be at any special location. But it was completely different. My office was right on the beach and a bit smaller. The great part was that...

Here it is, the end of my internship. I was the last one to go back home as I decided to stay for 5 weeks and not for 4 weeks like everybody else did. Some people asked me if I regretted my decision but my answer was always the same: No! So when my colleagues Annika, Stef, Dani, Andi and Jules left I had already made plans for the last weekend. I visited the South Downs National Park which was approximately 60 minutes away from Brighton. It was a beautiful scenery and the absolute highlight was...

4 weeks can sometimes feel like 4 days. The time here in Brighton passed so quickly yet we experienced so much and visited a lot of places. I really enjoyed the stay but honestly, I cannot wait to come back home and spend the rest of my summer holidays with a lot of sunshine and 30°C + degrees. Not that the weather was bad quite contrary we only had 2 rainy days but in the evenings it tends to get really cold and you’ll definitely need a jacket. Turning 18 in England is also something...

It was actually a normal, not exciting working week, except Friday. After my lunchbreak at 2pm it started raining IN THE OFFICE. We had a burst pipe. We tried to save the computers and some important documents, we covered the tables and got trash bins and containers. After about 10 minutes the fire alarm went off. Catastrophe! We had to leave the office and we were allowed to go home. The rest of the day was really fun, Hannah and I visited the Pier and rode roller-coaster, …. On Saturday we...

On two Saturdays we went to London with the train, luckily the drive from Brighton to London takes only about an hour. We visited the most important sights like the Buckingham Palace, London Eye,… Of course we went shopping, looked at the new Tottenham Stadium, but of course no club is better than Red Bull Salzburg. After the sightseeing we met with the boys, went to a park with them. On the second Saturday we went clubbing, we had a good time. I imagined the clubs in London differently, but...

We visited the Brighton Pier about three times, rode the rollercoaster, the big booster etc. As you might imagine, at first it was a weird feeling to be upside down right over the sea but we went a few times, so we really enjoyed it. One day we did not know what to do and just bought a day pass for this theme park. What else should we do? Haha. So, go to Brighton Pier and have a good time, on a theme park right over the sea. -Hannah

After 4 weeks of work, I'm glad it went so quickly. I still have an additional week which I, as mentioned before, will spend at the sea side. So, to conclude my blogs, I can say that this internship was completely different from the one I had in Austria. Not only workwise, but in general. The first thing that attracted my attention was that they have a whole hour for lunch here which was great! The next thing was that a working day starts at 9, which I think is absolutely great because you have...

Arriving at the third week of my internship, I gained a lot of experience and was able to learn many new things. I got used to my daily routine and enjoy going to work every day. To continue my tasks I had to do, during the last two weeks, I got a bunch of new things to do. Daisy, the CTO, asked me to make some surveys for them. As the questions were already written I only had to copy & paste them or just change a few things. Furthermore, I had made some surveys like this before in school,...

Welcome to my last blog In the latest ones I wrote mostly about our job and our tasks we have to fulfill. In this one I‘m willing to tell you something about our private stuff. In the first week we discovered a magnificent bar where we have been often. This place is a combination of a restaurant, ping pong and a normal bar. With our tours we have almost seen every important sight, so places like the Buckingham Palace e.g weren‘t our goal to explore privatly. We also went to the biggest...
