Reisverslag Day 4-5-6
8 mei 2015
Tuesday my internship at Dive Systems started. I needed to be there at 9 o'clock in the morning, and met several people from the staff. Alexia and Simon (2 owners of the company) showed me the building and some of the equipment used when diving. I started off with arranging some papers. In the afternoon I got a break for like an hour, and after this Simon told me I was allowed to go diving the next day, to see where it is al about at Dive Systems. I was really surprised, but of course I wanted to go diving! My working day finished at 14:30,
In the evening Tessa and I have been to Valletta, to drink something. We didn't return home very late, because we were quite tired after our first working day.
Wednesday I needed to be at Dive Systems at 9 o'clock in the morning, as I was going to dive. I was with 2 instructors (one stagiair) and 2 other divers. We first got a lot of instructions, which are definitely necessary! After 1,5 hour, when we had all of our equipment on (which is a lot!, I could barely walk), it was finally the time to go diving. We needed to do some exercises in the water, and saw some fish. It was really cool, although it was a bit scary at some times. It felt really weird to breath under the water. After diving, I took a shower, and it was time to work again. This day was more fun then the day before, as I communicated much more with the staff. For example, together with Nathalie (a swedish girl who works at Dive System) I went to several hotels to give them some brochures of Dive System. At 6 o'clock I was finished and went home. In the evening Tessa and I spent some time in Sliema with 2 other friends.
Thursday was quite a relaxed day at my internship. I needed to arrange some papers and did some work at the computer. I was allowed to return home at 14:30. In the evening we went to the bbq of Am Language. The food was really tasty! And again we met a lot of international students, from the Czech Republic and even from Africa. We played some games as well, which were fun to do! When the bbq was finished, some people were going to a karaoke bar in Sliema, and Tessa and I joined as well :). We had a lot of fun!
I'm just back from my internship now, I finished at like 6 o'clock today, so it has been a quite an exhausting day. Tonight Tessa and I will go to Paceville again, and tommorow we will finally be able to sleep a little bit longer, as we are free during the weekend.
After spending some days here, I am starting to feel much more comfortable, both in the host family and at my internship. During my internship I communicate more and more with my 'collegues' and I really do like my host family. Doreen is very caring and friendly!
I'm sure Tessa and I will have a fun weekend, we probably will go swimming and visit the city Mdina.
At the end of the weekend, I will probably post another travelogue. Goodbye!

Het lijkt me inderdaad heel leuk met al die verschillende nationaliteiten. Gezellig samen eten en kletsen!
Heb jij trouwens al eerder gedoken? Lijkt me erg leuk (en ook wel een beetje eng).
Heel veel plezier nog de komende week!

Hoi mvr. Lankveld,
Het is inderdaad heel leuk met al die andere nationaliteiten. Ik heb nog niet eerder gedoken, maar het was een leuke ervaring!
