My Travel Adventure Comes to an End

Hey you!

Last Day

On our last day, my friend and I went to the Norther Quarter – as we had to try one of the individual restaurants. We went to Night and Day and we had an amazing breakfast. Then, we walked along the beautiful Canal Street and the Gay Village. As it was daytime, there was not much going on. That was basically my trip. Fortunately, Bella reserved a seat for the train, because it was packed. I imagine Manchester is very popular for weekend trips. Continue reading

More Strolling Through the City of Manchester

Hey guys!

After I checked in the hotel in Salford (west Manchester), I went to the nearby Quays. There is the Media City UK (both BBC and ITV are based here!), the Lowry Outlet, Imperial War Museum and Lowry, which is an arts complex. At the Outlet, I found a Cadbury shop. I immediately fell in love with the little shop and bought lots of chocolates (Ok, I admit it. I am addicted to chocolate! My faves are the Fingers! Sooo delicious!). There is also a lot of food options and if the sun shines, it didn’t at that day, there are nice places to sit alongside the canal. Manchester West is busy too, not only the city centre. Near our hotel was the University of Salford. There is an art gallery as well and a shopping area.  Continue reading

My first Impression of Manchester: HUGE, RED, LIVELY

Hey guys!

Since I am in UK, I always wanted to travel up north, either to Manchester or Liverpool. Although, I’ve been to York with my family for a couple of days in December, which is in the North and I could warmly recommend it. York is such a charming city, with the intact wall from the Roman times.

Back to my trip, I was lucky that Professionals UK offered me this trip. Manchester, I am buzzin’ for this. Continue reading

An Amazing Internship Experience in Manchester

It was 9:30am on a cloudy Tuesday in Manchester, I had just gotten off a bus and had absolutely no idea where I was. ‘Keep calm’, I told myself. ‘You’ve got this. Today’s only the day you’ve anticipated for months, nothing more. No biggie, right?’.

Background

As a full-time German student, I’d had the idea to do an internship in the UK about a year ago and as I had been in love with England since I first came here and really wanted to gain some practical experience before burying myself in textbooks for another five years, I immediately knew I had to do it. It had all seemed so far away back then, but time had flown by and soon I was already standing in Albert Square with my A-Levels done, my application to study English and Media at the University of Cologne sent in and 6 weeks of work experience at a company specializing in Sales Consultancy for technology companies ahead of me.
