My old school: HLW Rankweil

The “HLW Rankweil”, as it’s called, is located in Rankweil, Austria and was founded in 1977. The school I’m writing about is my old high school. At the moment there are around 65 teachers and 480 students, most of them being girls. It takes five years to finish and graduate from this school. This school is not like a normal high school, the correct translation of the name is: school and college of management and services industries. This means that in addition to general education it provides a technical and vocational training in subject-related theoretical and business-oriented subjects. The essential objectives are: personal growth and development, creativity, teamwork, communicative skills in several languages and practical experience. After this school you […]

My University

I studied at the University of Reading for three years. My degree was in History and Politics. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Reading is in Berkshire which is about a thirty minute train ride from London Paddington. The University itself has some significant history attached to it. It was formerly part of Oxford University’s Christ Church College but was granted independence to produce its own degrees by a Royal Charter from King George V. It was also the first university to appoint a woman as a chair at an English University level-institution in 1912. The University also boasts having the renowned Twentieth Century composer Gustav Holst as a Professor of music.  Reading University can also proclaim one of the […]

Living in a island

Living in a island is wonderful, you have the sea near of your house and a nice weather almost all the year But sometimes it’s not so good … A few days ago I was planning a holiday’s trip, the tickets were very cheap (round-trip from Madrid to France 15€ ) but the problem was that going out of the island costed 300€ the same round-trip, so I felt caught and frustrated. Some days before it I was talking with two friends and one of them (from Lisbon) asked me, wouldn’t you live here for the whole life? And I answered of course not. Well, I recognize it leaving here is quite nice, the people is wonderful, also the food, […]

Souvenirs

Are you going on your vacation or actually you are there, but don’t know what to buy as a souvenir? Come on! It is not so difficult at all, is it? We are different, so our taste as well. For one of us the perfect souvenir is postcard, the others might choose some parts of clothes with logo of hosting city. How the situation looks in the most popular destinations for travelling on the Globe? In London people willingly buy thousands kinds of fridge magnet with images of historical attractions and royals, of course. In Paris the winners are white t-shirt and small pendant, both present the Eiffel Tower. What about Funchal? Which object is the most valuable for our […]

Christmas time

This moment of the year is for me really important and emotional as I am writing this text few days before Christmas. Funchal looks fabulous with all light decorations but I still cannot feel that this time is just about to start. What am I missing? I have never spent these holidays abroad, even taking into account the fact that I had already lived abroad before. Beyond the whole religious aspect, this time is really significant for me as my entire family can be together which is normally not so easy as we live in different places. What I appreciate most in Poland is the festive atmosphere when you look out the window and see that snowy and cold land […]

Christmas is here! Or is it?

Three days until Christmas, and this feels even weirder than I expected. Once again I’m comparing my life here now and my life before this experience. Christmas for me usually means snow, family, lots of candles, snow, dark days and snow. This year I won’t get any of these. Okay, I can arrange the candles myself, but not the other things. I won’t get most of the real Finnish Christmas food, because for cooking them I would need an oven. Not going to cemetery on Christmas Eve to bring candles for those who we miss, not visiting grandparents on Christmas day and seeing all the relatives at the same time in the same house. Not seeing the face of my […]

Funchal

The isolated capital of the pearl of the Atlantic Funchal is, depending on whom you ask either a big or a tiny city. The capital of Madeira counts more or less 112.000 inhabitants and is the largest city of the island. But what is Funchal for me? I have been in Madeira for one and a half month now and had enough time to get the first impression of its landscape and also its capital Funchal. When I arrived here I thought that Funchal has everything one could wish for. And that is right… at least when you are a tourist. Here, you can find a bunch of souvenir shops, a lot of cafes and restaurants and a mass of […]

Hiking in Porto Santo

Golden Island is not only the beach! We’ve been told by a number of people that the best time to visit Porto Santo is early Autumn, when the weather is still great but as it’s no longer the high season, the place is more calm and relaxed. Peace and quiet was exactly what we needed, so in the middle of October, after months of waiting for the right moment, we finally got ourselves our tickets to the Golden Island. I imagine most of the people head to Porto Santo with that spectacular 9 km long sandy beach in mind, but I was never too much of a beach person. All my attention and all my curiosity was with the hills […]
