25/4 2012

Ok, now these last few weeks I try to be more active with this blog. Still, no photos but it’s only cos’ I cannot write this blog in our place..
I had my valuation conversation (or whatever the name is in English) with my supervisor last Friday and I couldn’t be happier how everything went. So so happy !! Now I just need to send those applications back to Finland and then I guess all my school work is done. During the conversation, I noticed how much I have learned here, an’ I’m defiantly so glad that I chose to come here to do this. Of course, it was also pleasant to get positive feedback J
I have been doing the same at work, answering to request, sending offers/confirmations, vouchers etc. I still have been doing menus and hotel descriptions, rooming lists etc. I also have been picking up tickets from Camp Nou and delivering them to different hotels. I like that. Last week, I also had to deliver 38 T10 metro tickets to one group, hehehe..

It has been scary how fast time has gone here. I feel like it goes twice as fast than in Finland. But we’re coming back here with Reetta after the graduation so I try not to worry about the time. Thank god, work wise everything looks kind of good ;) I hope at least.
Last weekend was fun, finally it’s warm here again J We went to watch Barca-Real Madrid on Saturday and of course was disappointed after Barca lost..byhyy..I think the guys are a bit exhausted of the season, but I hope they get their act together J My favorite, Pujol with his big hair (hehe), is gonna work it out, I’m sure ! Last night we went to watch Barca-Chelsea and Barca was so close to win...until the end of second half-time Barca was in lead 2-1 but then stupid Chelsea player scored and well results we all know 2-2….aargh.
This weekend our friend from London is coming here, it’s nice to see Miia!
Ok, I get back to work again

Long time no see !

I have been so bad recently to write this blog.. Basically, just been too busy and our Internet is so slow and bad at our home so it has been hard to do this. Now I’m writing this in my work place, an’ of course don’t have any photos to put at this time but I try to put them at some point.

Everything is still great and I seriously have decided to come back here right after my graduation. Have to find a work place, of course and a new place for me an’ Retta cos’ Carlos, who lives in our flat, is due to come back from Madrid on June.
Lot of things has happened since I wrote this last time. We went to Paris in the beginning of March an’ had great time there. We also met there our beautiful great school mates Elina and Sani, lot of greetings to them J Lot of fun in Paris, saw all those typical tourist places Eiffel tower, Champs  Elysees, Notre Dame etc. But I must say I prefer BCN over Paris, sorry..
At work, it has been busy almost the whole time. But it’s great to do things nowadays, now that you know how to do them and can do all the time more an’ more to clients. I have been almost all the time in our office, but also couple times in a week I deliver/pick up tickets to hotels,  mostly from Camp Nou or other office duties..

One of the best things I have experienced here was, when my boss took me to Camp Nou on 3th of April to Barca-Milan Champions league game. It was a-m-aziiing!!! I was so excited and happy and thankful+ every positive adjective, I can imagine. And of course, Milan sucked and Barca was GREEEAT!! I really want to go to see a game again, only problem is that how expensive it is. I’m so looking forward this Sunday, when it’s El Classico !!!
I went to visit Casa Mila couple weeks ago with my boss and Piia, the great thing about that was that it was nightime visit, a tour which hadn’t opened yet to public. It was very good, I highly recommend!

I also have been now 6 weeks in my Spanish lessons, still 2 weeks left. It has been very very good for me an’ finally my vocabulary has grown and I see the improvement. First there was 8 people in the class, but almost everyone stoped after 4 weeks, now there is 2 persons with me..hehhee. Actually last week, I was the only student with our teacher Ana. But hey it’s good to have private class, better for me. The classes I go to are in Ole!Languages school, it is in Av Mistral, I highly recommend the place!

We have had lot of visitors in past weeks, it has been nice. Our schoolmate Elina came from Paris to weekend and Reetta’s folks came to spend Easter here. My mum and her husband left today, they came on Friday. It was so great to see Mum after 4 months J We tooked the tourist bus so they could see the whole BCN and went to aquarium etc.. Lot of fun with them!

Ok, now I need to get back to work.. Hasta luegoooo J
Saludos y besitos !!!!
